Guinness World Records

Upon breaking the World’s Largest Cup of Coffee, we also broke the Guinness World Record for World’s Largest Cup of Iced Coffee on October 16, implementing the same system perfected with the hot cup of joe but with a little more tweaking. The iced coffee was required to be below 45 degrees and it took 3,500 pounds of ice to attain the record breaking temperature. Not to mention, we had to empty out 100 gallons of coffee to accommodate the ice and after taking all day to perfect, finally broke the record as the show’s doors were closing!
