Turn piping hot coffee into iced coffee in 1 minute with the HyperChiller

If you’re the type of person who notices a dip in your bank account during the summer because you can’t live without a morning cup of iced coffee, you’ve probably tried to make it at home. But that takes planning ahead to make the cold brew and let it chill. Not cool. The HyperChiller claims to fix the problem.

The HyperChiller isn’t actually all that high-tech. It’s effectively a container with a center cooling chamber that’s surrounded on all sides by ice. There’s an inner icy compartment and an outer one, and together they chill the coffee in the cooling chamber down 130 degrees Fahrenheit in a minute. Because the ice is separate from the coffee, the beverage isn’t diluted, and you can pour it in straight from your coffee maker. If you don’t want to pour it over ice, you can leave it in the HyperChiller an extra few minutes to cool in further.

“I made this product out of frustration,” creator Nick Anusbigian told Digital Trends. “I received a Keurig as a gift for Christmas 2014 and realized I couldn’t make iced coffee with it.” He started fiddling around with a cocktail shaker, pouring coffee in the small cup and dunking it into the larger cup, which was filled with an ice-water slurry. It took between five and eight minutes to chill the brew. “At that point I realized I just needed to increase the surface area and came up with this design with the dual layers of ice,” he says.

The device is made of stainless steel and BPA-free plastic, and you can stick in the dishwasher. That’s pretty crucial, considering you need to leave it in the freezer for 12 hours to get the ice solid enough to cool your coffee the next morning. It can hold 12.5 ounces of coffee, though that one-minute cooling time is for an 8-ounce cup.

Back in the summer of 2015, the HyperChiller had a successful Kickstarter campaign, raising $16,371, a bit above its $15,000 goal. It’s now available on Amazon for $30, or the equivalent of about 10 iced coffees.
