The Elusive Coffee Bar

My quest for a Ninja Coffee Bar is failing. I emailed SharkNinja about it and they told me that they have no plans to release another coffee machine in the UK and that the models CF065 & CF091 are no longer available and that they do not know of any suppliers in the UK that have them in stock still. I have looked and looked, but no one has one. I did find one on eBay, was the winning bid for 2 days, then was outbid with seconds to go. There are others on eBay for sale but they have all used/second hand, which I certainly do not want.

I found a European one on Amazon, but it is a different plug. I know I can get an adapter, but that is not the point, I would rather have a UK version. Also If I order today, I will receive it in June which puts me off too, and add to that I would be listed as the importer by Amazon, which begs the question of import tax, will I be charged for that too by HMRC? or because it is under a certain amount will there be no tax? Part of me wants to get it, but the above has stopped me in my tracks.

Now, I do have a coffee machine, no, let’s get that right, I have many coffee machines. I have a Nespresso machine, a filter machine, an Aeropress, a French Press, a Bialetti stovetop espresso pot, a Dolce Gusto machine, and of course I have a hot water dispenser and a kettle so I can make instant. Yes, I have lots of coffee making possibilities, but I still want the Ninja machine, they look good and have so many functions, unlike a coffee pot that has one job to do.

The search will continue unless I break, then I will have to get the European one from Amazon. If I do, I may have to see if I can remove the EU plug and fit a British one, although that will invalidate the guarantee. I really am running the complete gamut of decisions.

Till next time…
