Honest Product Review: Mr. Iced Coffee Is a Huge Win For Speed and Price

3 min read

As an avid coffee drinker, I stay pretty up-to-date with any new coffee launches from any of the big coffee chains, as well as any new coffee machines and products. I was absolutely excited when I found out that Mr. Coffee had just come out with a single serve iced coffee maker that comes with a reusable tumblr. Of course I had to find this coffee machine and buy it but it’s hard to get a hold of because it’s been selling out, even though it has been out for months. Luckily, I was able to get my hands on one of the coffee makers and I’m going to see what all the hype is about. Today I will be rating  the Mr. Iced Coffee on 2 categories, price and affordability and truth in advertising. I will then finish up with my parting thoughts, my final, and any downfalls. 

Price and Affordability (10/10)

The Mr. Iced Coffee Maker comes in 4 different colors and retails for $29.99 on Target’s website. It also comes with a 22oz reusable tumbler and a reusable coffee filter. The machine takes ground coffee, and I personally spend about $9.99 a pound on ground coffee from a local shop in Pittsburgh. Now let’s put these prices in perspective. A singular serve Keurig machine will run you about $79.99 and the K- cups that you need for them can run you upwards $17 dollars for a pack of 24 single serve cups. If you are an iced coffee drinker like I am this is a no-brainer. The overall product is cheaper, the ground coffee you buy for it is cheaper, and you don’t need to buy paper filters. This is why I rated the Mr. Coffee Iced Coffee Maker a 10/10 for price and affordability

Truth in Advertising (10/10)

One of the most important things I look for in my coffee and my coffee products is the quality.  Now I have tried hot coffee makers that make iced coffee and the number one drawback is that the iced coffee does not get cold. It is hot and it melts the ice I have in my cup way too quickly. The two things that  Mr. Iced Coffee really hyped up in their advertising is that it is “rapid cooling” and brews within 4 minutes. LET ME TELL YOU I WAS SHOCKED. Not only was my ice coffee done in about 2 minutes but it was ice cold, ready for me to put my creamer in it!. I was really surprised how user-friendly this machine was, there was no fuss about it, all I had to do was hit the start button, and it stopped automatically.


I really have nothing bad to say other than one potential drawback. My drawback is that the tumbler that it comes with is not dishwasher friendly. You have to hand wash it. 

Final Rating : 9.5/10

I really cannot put in to words how much I love this product. It is quick, it is easy, and barely takes up any room on my counter. To say I love this product is an understatement. I recommended this product to two of my best friends and they ordered it for themselves. They have been using it every day since they tried it. It is easy and affordable and can save you money in the long run since you won’t need to go to Starbucks or Dunkin’ for iced coffee. It is definitely worth the buy!
