The self-serve iced coffee machines at 7-Eleven provide a quick and easy way to enjoy a chilled beverage, thanks to an ingenious packaging and ingredient system.

Besides 7-Eleven's stacks of clear iced coffee cups (filled only with ice), the brand now offers a new black cup that's filled with a combination of ice and frozen beads of milk and sugar to make a iced cafe latte. Once these cups are picked up off the shelf and held under the coffee machine, the liquid is cooled, thinned with milk and sweetened so that it is ready to drink by the time all the pouring has been done.

Since preparing an iced coffee often involves much more than a hot pot of coffee, this is a brilliant way to streamline the process.
