The other day, I was surprised when a friend living in the UK told me that I don't have a habit of drinking iced coffee here, but when I looked it up, iced coffee originated in Japan. There is a forecast that it will be extremely hot this year, and this summer is likely to be an indispensable drink for coffee lovers.
However, if you want to make it at home, you have to buy beans for ice cream, or brew them thicker than usual and drop them on ice, which can be a hassle and you can end up with commercial products or convenience stores. Therefore, this time, we will introduce recommended items for those who want to drink their favorite iced coffee.
Born in the United States, "Hyperchiller" is a pot that quickly cools freshly brewed hot coffee and turns it into iced coffee in just one minute. Even if you don't have special beans or extra ice, you can make it whenever you want by just freezing the pot.
Simple 3-layer structure
When you open the top lid, there are two stainless steel cups inside like a nest. Fill a small cup and outer container with water, close the lid and freeze in the freezer for about 12 hours and you're ready to go.
The internal structure of Hyperchiller is like this. It is said that rapid cooling is performed by pouring a drink between the two layers of ice.
When it's completely frozen, pour hot brewed coffee from the top as usual.
When I measured it after 1 minute of pouring, it was about 20 degrees. Just pour it into a glass of ice and you're done (if you don't add ice, wait another minute). It's freshly brewed, so it's very fragrant, and I enjoyed the familiar taste and cold throat!
The amount that can be cooled at one time is 370 ml, so I thought it would be just right to put it in a tumbler and take it to the office. Also, the cooling time will increase a little, but once frozen, it can be used up to twice, so it can accommodate a large number of people. It's also convenient when you want to make ice cream and hot at the same time, and if the height of the pot matches, you can pour coffee directly from the coffee machine.
Leave drinks other than coffee
Hyperchiller can be used for drinks such as wine, whiskey and juice in addition to coffee (carbonation is not possible). If it was originally chilled, it will become chilly, so it seems to be a big success even in the hot summer.
Also, since it uses ordinary water instead of a special liquid, it is also a point to decompose everything and keep it clean. It is also compatible with dishwashers.
Hyperchiller is currently looking for support on the crowdfunding site "Makuake" for distribution in Japan. The target amount has already been greatly exceeded, and it seems that the day when it will be available at hand is near. You can still apply for a plan that you can get at an early discount price of 4,485 yen (both including tax) at the planned sales price of 5,980 yen. It will arrive in July, so why not consider it together this summer?
