Yes, you can dump freshly-brewed coffee in a glass filled with ice, then wait a few minutes to have it turn into an appropriately-cold iced beverage. Chances are, however, the water is going to dilute the coffee so much, it’s just not going to taste the same. The Hyperchiller offers a smarter way of doing things.
A cup-like vessel, it’s designed to quickly lower the temperature of hot coffee, cooling it off by as much as 130 degrees Fahrenheit in as little as one minute. Even better, it does that without diluting the coffee, so your freshly-brewed cup tastes exactly the same as it does fresh off the pot – just a heck of a lot colder well before you even pour it into a glass filled with ice.
The Hyperchiller consists of a 12.5-ounce main chamber that’s covered in a wall, floor, and central core made of ice, allowing you to rapidly chill any drink inside by simply swirling it every few seconds. While designed for coffee, it should also work for quickly chilling any beverage without diluting it, making it suited for wines, beers, and sodas. To use, simply fill the two ice sections with water, assemble the rig, and place it upright in the freezer for at least 12 hours. From there, it’s ready to use for making delicious iced coffee 12.5 ounces at a time.
The vessel is small enough to fit right under the mouth of any single-serve coffee maker, so you can just place it there while the coffee brews. After each session, you can easily reuse the Hyperchiller for later – just rinse the main chamber to remove any leftover coffee and place it back in the freezer.
Available now, the Hyperchiller is priced at $29.95.
