Some automatic-drip brewers have a setting specifically for dispensing hot coffee over ice. The advantage of brewing hot is that it creates a coffee that has more flavor compared to steeping methods. Additionally, hot/cold brewing machines featuring a hot water only setting are great for stirring up a cup of oatmeal or instant noodles.
