I have always liked McDonald’s coffee – even the simple brewed cup that they served before the days of McCafe. I suppose my being a student who was unable to afford something more expensive back in the days had something to do with my affinity for McDonald’s brewed coffee. Still, when McCafe opened up, I was happy to have a taste of “specialty” coffee at a reasonable price.
Residents of Central Ohio are set to enjoy these blends pretty soon. McDonald’s announced that they are opening up McCafes in participating stores in the area.
Market Watch reports:
New coffees include Lattes, Mochas and Cappuccinos in a variety of options and flavors including Iced, Hazelnut, Caramel and Vanilla (regular and sugar free), and Premium Roast Coffee and Hot Chocolate. Most are available in small (12 ounces), medium (16 ounces) and large (20 ounces). Prices and participation may vary, but generally start at $1.99. Shots of espresso are also available.
With the new specialty coffees, McDonald’s is giving customers the choice of whole or non-fat milk.
McCafe Specialty Coffees start with coffee beans, which are harvested by hand in the warm climates of Central and South America, as well as in the mountainous regions of Indonesia. Only the finest, fully-ripened beans are used, ensuring great taste. A state-of-the-art espresso machine freshly grinds McCafe Specialty Coffee beans before brewing them under pressure, with high-quality milk and flavor syrups added.
For people in Ohio who are looking for reasonably priced and yet good tasting coffee, I suggest that you give McCafe a try.
