The Mr. Coffee iced coffee maker gained viral status, and I totally understand why!
Calling all iced coffee lovers!
I’m a coffee addict in general, hot or cold. However, I absolutely LOVE iced coffee, and we’re officially breaking into iced coffee season!
I first saw this Mr. Coffee iced coffee machine at the peak of quarantine in 2020, and when I tell you I looked EVERYWHERE, I really did! It was sold out at every retailer, including Amazon, and at the time, it was really the only automatic coffee machine I had seen specifically for iced coffee (probably why it got so popular).
Through June 4th, you can snag this awesome coffee maker at Target for only $34.99 and you’ll score a $5 Target Gift Card! Even better, you’ll also score a FREE Torani Syrup with the purchase of the Mr. Coffee Iced Coffee Maker now through June 11th!

Every time I’ve tried brewing my own iced coffee with a standard hot drip-coffee machine, it was always super watery and just didn’t taste the way I want it to.
To get my fix, I would buy the pre-brewed Starbucks Iced Coffee, and while it’s delicious, my iced coffee habit started to get very expensive because of how often I had to restock.
Over the past year, the Mr. Coffee Iced Coffee maker has continued to impress me!
When I first bought this iced coffee maker, I was so excited to get to brewing, and although I had to make some modifications, it truly is one of my most coveted kitchen appliances and definitely makes the most affordable (and of course, delicious) at-home iced coffee!
By the way, this is in no way a sponsored post. I spent so much time traveling to the ends of the earth to find this iced coffee machine and having it exceed my expectations using it for more than half a year, I wanted to give you my true and honest feedback.
This set comes with an iced coffee tumbler, straw, reusable coffee filter, and of course, the actual coffee maker. The tumbler is labeled with a water and ice line so you know how much to fill the machine with, making it foolproof for iced coffee newbies.
While I went with the standard black coffee maker, this machine comes in four colors to match any style.
How to brew with this iced coffee maker:
Start by measuring out the water with the tumbler. The machine also has a line of where to fill, but it’s based on the same measurements of the tumbler, so, if you’re using a different cup (which I’ve done), be mindful of how much water you use so it doesn’t overflow! After you put the water in, you’ll want to fill the entire cup with ice.
The coffee does come out hot so that’s why it tells you to fill it up entirely with ice because a solid amount of it will melt, but I’ve found it’s better to fill it three quarters with ice followed by adding more after the coffee is brewed. That way it won’t become too watery!
It’s obviously up to you which ground coffee you use, but I use Starbucks House Blend so I got the full effect of being my own wannabe Starbucks barista. 🤣
Once you add your ground coffee and water, turn on the machine and change the switch to the water symbol. And voila — your coffee will start to brew! I was skeptical at first since it comes out hot, but the cup is insulated so your coffee will stay cold once cooled by the ice cubes. This also works with other cups aside from the tumbler, too!
Add your sugar and creamer/milk if desired, and you’re all set to enjoy a refreshing iced coffee!
This iced coffee method follows the “Japanese iced coffee” brewing style, where you immediately pour coffee over ice, rapidly chilling it and having enough ice in the cup, so by the time you actually drink it, it’s cold. The major differences aside from that are there is no hot plate (essential for the iced coffee effect), and you can only brew one serving at a time.
The tumbler included makes sure to note how much ice to insert so you have enough ice in the cup to cool the coffee. Despite about a quarter of the ice melting, you still have a comfortable amount of ice that remains to continuously cool down your coffee and enjoy while drinking it!
One thing I wish was different is that it makes only single servings, similar to a Keurig. This isn’t a huge deal, but it does get a little annoying when more than one person wants an iced coffee, and I have to go in repeatedly doing the same steps! Other than that, there are really no other critiques!
If you can’t tell by now, I’m truly over the moon about this iced coffee maker. It is so convenient and is saving me money by not running to Starbucks three times a week 😆. I’m not looking back and recommend this to any iced coffee lover! It’s the perfect gift to your loved ones or yourself.
Have a brew-tiful day! 😍
