Ice, ice coffee.
We know those aren’t the lyrics, but for the iced coffee addicts among us, they may as well be. When the weather warms up, the best way to cool off with a splash of caffeine is with a cup of iced coffee. However, if you don’t have time to run to your local shop or don’t want to pay for an overpriced cup, we have a home-brewed solution.
While you can totally make iced coffee at home with a traditional coffee maker, ice and some patience, regular drinkers of the cold stuff know it doesn’t hit in quite the same way.
Many of the below can make a cup of cafe-quality iced coffee in seconds without the need for refrigeration, while others are made to create the perfect cold brew from home.
Many also work with iced tea, matcha and other cool beverages that will have you summer ready and looking for the nearest poolside to lounge by.
If you’re looking for a cup of iced coffee at home, Mr. Coffee is your man.
This Mr. Coffee machine is not your ordinary hot coffee maker. Instead, the rapid chilling technology inside brews your coffee hot but dispenses it cooled, best served over a tumbler full of ice, of course. The whole set comes complete with the machine itself, a tumbler, lid, two reusable straws, a coffee scoop and reusable filter.

For a high-tech coffee maker that can make both hot and iced coffee, use K-cups and grounds and froth milk and boil water, this is the Ninja for you.
The super helpful Ninja DualBrew Pro is a do-it-all kind of coffee maker, but for the iced coffee lovers you’ll want to take note of the special “over ice” button that brews a more concentrated pot over the included carafe of ice so that your cup is never diluted, even when the ice melts.

If you love your hot coffee maker and are stressed about how to get iced coffee fast, you need to chill.
The HyperChiller is the solution to your coffee problems, especially when in a rush and not wanting to mess with ice trays or have watered down coffee when the ice melts. After storing in the freezer, place the HyperChiller right under your K-cup coffee maker and the liquid will chill instantly in 60 seconds. If you use a traditional coffee pot, just pour it into the HyperChiller, swirl it around for a minute, and pour into your favorite glass for a perfectly cold cup of coffee.
One quart or two? That’s the real question.
When it comes to iced coffee, there is never too much. That’s why Takeya gives you the option of a one-quart pitcher or two, both of which brew cold brew to perfection and double as the carafe to pour from. You can also choose between black, stone gray or white for the lid color, easy to match to any kitchen counter or patio setup for summertime outdoor coffee.
