There are hot coffee fans, iced coffee fans, and just coffee in any form fans. I’m one of the just gimme coffee fans. But if you prefer iced coffee or just like it in summer, there’s now a machine for you. And this will make a great Mother’s Day gift for coffee loving moms!

According to Food Beast, the folks at Keurig has released an ice coffee home brewing machine, and it’s the first of its kind. The new K-Iced Coffee Maker brews over ice by automatically adjusting the brew temperature. By brewing hotter at first, you get the full flavor of the coffee, and then cooling it down makes for less ice melt.

The machine is similar to the hot version, using K-Pods for brewing. And like the hot version, the new cold version offers three cup sizes. No more waiting in line for your favorite iced coffee! Now you can make it in minutes at home.

Amazon shoppers who have purchased the machine are loving it and it’s already received a 4.4 out of 5 stars. The machine comes in two colors and the pricing is $99 on Amazon. I’m a hot coffee fan mostly but in the summer a yummy, iced coffee in the afternoon hits the spot. I’m already wondering where on my counter I can put this. LOL!
