MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What coffee keeps you more cool, hot or iced?

It might make sense that iced is the answer. And while it does tastes refreshing in the summer, when it comes to cooling you off it’s kind of just a quick fix. Think of it like this… drinking 1 cold beverage into your hot body is like dumping a glass of ice into a hot bath.

Drinking a hot coffee will increase your core temperature, which then cues the body’s natural response to increase perspiration. As the sweat evaporates from your skin it actually “acts as a coolant.” Which will in theory cool you off more than the iced coffee.
