Making good iced coffee is easier said than done. Pouring hot coffee over ice results in a weak, diluted beverage. And refrigerating hot coffee means you’ll never get to enjoy a fresh brew. While an iced coffee maker is a great option, if you’ve already got a regular coffee maker, you may not want to use up valuable counter space with another appliance. The answer to your problem is the Hyperchiller, a little device that makes hot coffee frigid in just 60 seconds without watering it down.

To use the Hyperchiller ($25), all you have to do is add water to the chamber and put it in the freezer. Whenever you need it, pour your hot coffee in the lid and swish it around for about a minute to drop the temperature of your coffee by 130°F, meaning you can pour it over ice without instantly melting it. Want to go colder? Just swish it around in the Hyperchiller for another minute or two.

The Hyperchiller works with hot coffee no matter the brewing method. Whether you’ve prepared your brew with a drip machine or French press, it’ll get nice and cool in your Hyperchiller. If you have a single-cup coffee maker like a Keurig or Nespresso, Hyperchiller is designed to fit under the dispenser of most models so you can brew your coffee directly into the cooling chamber.

Tracy Lockwood Beckerman, MS, RD, says it’s best to drink your coffee, iced or hot, with few (if any) additions. If you are going to add anything, she says to stay away from artificial creamers.

“Coffee, when consumed in moderation with minimal amounts of sugars and creamers, can be a healthy addition to an otherwise healthy balanced diet,” says Beckerman in an episode of You Versus Food, a show on the Well+Good YouTube channel. When you keep it simple, she says you can really take advantage of all of the beverage’s many benefits.

“The caffeine in coffee increases the stimulant norepinephrine and the laser-focus chemical dopamine in your brain,” says Beckerman. “That’s why a cup of coffee can get you all jacked up and ready to tackle your spreadsheets. Coffee beans contain antioxidants and essential nutrients like pantothenic acid, vitamin B5, manganese, potassium, magnesium, and niacin.”

By making your own iced coffee with the Hyperchiller, you can save tons of money and use fewer single-use plastic cups. The best part is that you can use it for more than just coffee. Instantly cool down a glass of wine, beer, juice, or any other drink you’d like. The Hyperchiller is dishwasher safe, making it super easy to clean, especially if you use it for more than just coffee. And since it’s only $25, you’ll cover the cost after a few days of opting for homemade iced drinks.
