Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System CP301
Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System CP307
Removable Water Reservoir
With coffee and tea baskets and a cold brewing system, this is the coffee maker for you if you want to add tea or cold brew to your repertoire. It’s great for making the perfect cup for everyone one at a time.
The Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System CP307 comes with one distinct advantage: a double-walled thermal carafe that keeps your coffee batches warmer longer. Get this coffee maker if you’re going to be serving groups of people a lot.
Cup or Carafe Brewing
Adaptability is an admirable feature in just about anything.
The CP301 and CP307 are both flexible when it comes to serving sizes. Either one can make personal cups or large 10-cup carafes.
To put it differently, you can brew a pot of coffee when you need to serve a group of people, or you can make a small cup when you need something just for you.
The bottom line is, you have the power to choose and brew accordingly.
Fold-Away Milk Frothers
Do you enjoy creamy lattes, cappuccinos, or macchiatos?
One thing those drinks all have in common is that they’re topped with varying amounts of milk foam. You can create this smooth and delicious foam right from the comfort of your kitchen with these Ninja machines.
That’s because they each come with a milk frother built onto the side.
But the utility of this design doesn’t end with generating milk foam. When you’re done frothing, you can fold the frothers into these coffee makers.
What this does is give you a little extra wiggle room when you’re short on space. Aside from that, it also allows you to comfortably transport or store these Ninja models wherever you need to.
Basket Recognition System
You probably like when your appliances aren’t limited to one specific function.
Similarly, you’ll enjoy having a coffee maker that isn’t restricted to coffee.
Either of these coffee makers can brew different kinds of coffee or tea for you. The way they accomplish this is through an innovative Basket Recognition System.
Don’t worry – it’s not complicated. If anything, this feature streamlines brewing anything for you.
Basically, these machines come with coffee and tea baskets. When you put either one in the coffee maker, it will sense which basket is being used and show you the correct brewing options for coffee or tea.
You won’t need to search through obscure buttons or dials of settings. You’ll have everything you need displayed right where you can see it.
Removable Water Reservoirs
Because these Ninjas both need to be refilled with water manually, it’s better if this refill process is as easy as possible.
That way, you can attend to the things that really matter, like enjoying each drink.
The CP301 and CP307 make water refills a dream with their removable reservoirs. When the coffee maker is running on empty, you can just slip out the tank and pour water in wherever is most convenient.
Other than water refills, removable tanks simplify machine clean-up. Instead of having to move the entire coffee maker for cleaning, you can take the tank out and wash it up separately.
Ninja Hot and Cold Brewed System CP307 Thermal Carafe
Really, the only difference between the CP301 and CP307 is that the latter comes with a thermal carafe.
In contrast, the CP301 comes with a glass carafe.
Why does that matter?
Briefly, it has to do with the thermal stability of your coffee. When you brew a pot of coffee, it cools down gradually until it reaches an unappealing room temperature.
The CP307’s thermal carafe is specifically designed to combat cooling. Your coffee will stay hotter longer.
Comparable Alternative Options
Don't think either of these brewing systems is right for you? Here are some other options we recommend.
The Keurig K-Cafe is an excellent option for you if what you're looking for is the easiest homemade lattes and cappuccinos. With just the push of a couple buttons, users can create perfectly foamy coffee shop staples.
What we especially love about this coffee maker is that it makes either hot or cold foam. That makes it a cinch to whip up refreshingly chilled drinks in hot weather or when you just want something to quench your thirst.
Plus, it's compatible with either K-Cups or ground coffee (with the purchase of the reusable K-Cup). You can enjoy the convenience of just popping the K-Cup flavor of your choice in and waiting, or you can use freshly ground coffee for the ultimate flavor.
Here are some other highlights to the K-Cafe:
- Available in two different attractive color options.
- Easy-to-use button controls.
- Smart start that combines the heatup and brewing stages into a single step.
- Removable drip tray, so you can fit travel mugs beneath the spout.
De'Longhi is well-known for their ability to produce user-friendly coffee makers for a range of budgets. Some are effortless capsule machines, others are high-end espresso machines, and still others combine features from multiple types - like this Combination Coffee Maker and Espresso Machine.
One one side, you have an espresso machine with milk frother. You can use it to craft a delicious homemade latte just like one you'd get in a coffee shop.
On the other side, you have a traditional coffee brewer. It can make an entire pot of a coffee at once, which is perfect for guests and family.
These are other appealing features the De'Longhi has:
- Brew pause function that allows you to pour yourself a cup from the carafe before it's finished brewing.
- The top of the machine doubles as a handy shelf for your mugs.
- An automatic shutoff function that will prevent you from forgetting to turn it off.
- Front-loading design that makes it a cinch to add coffee grounds or water for brewing.
Which one should you buy?
Because there’s only one real difference here, you need to consider how much that one difference means to you before you buy one or the other.
The CP307’s thermal carafe is going to be important if you often brew batches of coffee to serve groups or sip on by yourself over the course of a few hours. This will aid in keeping these batches deliciously warm and drinkable for an even greater amount of time.
But if you don’t foresee yourself brewing carafes often, there’s not really a need for you to get the thermal carafe. That means the CP301 might be a bit better for personal use, or those who will be making single-cup servings the most.
