There are steps three to brewing your own iced coffee. First, you make coffee the usual way in your cafetiere. Second, wait for it to cool, before pouring it over ice and ultimately diluting perfectly good coffee. Finally, head to the nearest coffee shop and just buy an iced coffee.
The rather slick Coil iced coffee maker is looking to simplify the process.
Rather than faffing about waiting for your brew to cool or pouring it over ice, the Coil cools freshly made coffee to nine degrees Celsius in under four minutes using ice and a coil of copper tubing.
To use coil, you place a handful of ice into the body of the brewer and close the lid. Rather than passing the coffee through the ice, pouring your brew into the lid passes the brew through the wound copper pipe, rapidly cooling the liquid without diluting the flavour.
Currently undergoing Kickstarter funding, you can place an order for a Coil for £126 - which, if you're a Frappuccino addict, equates to roughly 40 iced coffees/a bad week of caffeine addiction.
