While I love iced coffee, I hate waiting for brewed coffee to cool down or for the cold brew to chill for 12–24 hours. For a while I relied on buying iced coffee, but the daily expense adds up.


One of my friends introduced me to the Mr. Coffee Iced Coffeemaker and my morning routine instantly changed; now I can make a cup of iced coffee in minutes.


The new Mr. Coffee Iced is an easy, cost-effective way to make iced coffee at home. The package comes with the coffeemaker, a reusable coffee filter, coffee scoop and a tumbler. The process of making the coffee is easy: Just add water and coffee grounds to the machine then fill the tumbler with ice. The tumbler’s water and ice line directs you on how much of each to put in for the perfect cup. The coffee scooper also tells you how much coffee grounds you need. Once it’s all set up, you press the brew button on the side and you’ll have the perfect cup of iced coffee.


The coffee does come out hot, but the coffeemaker uses RapidChill brewing to build maximum flavor and quickly cool the hot coffee over ice. This ensures your coffee is smooth, refreshing and never watered down.


Also included in the package is a booklet that provides recipes to create various iced coffee drinks with different syrups and flavors.


Check out Mr. Coffee’s website for a variety of colors.
