McDonald’s is well-known all around the world for its fast food. However, it should also be mentioned that McDonald’s serves several different coffees. McDonald’s has an official menu solely for cafe-style drinks, including espresso drinks, as well as blended coffee drinks amongst a lot more!
Depending on the weather and your preference, you can choose between hot coffees and iced coffees! All of McDonald’s hot and cold coffee drinks can be ordered in a small, medium or large size.
McDonald’s has been serving coffee since it first opened. However, more fun and delicious tasting coffee drinks were added to the menu in 2009 to compete with another large coffee chain, which is Starbucks.
The following are the many different coffees you can get at McDonald’s:
Coffee connoisseurs would probably not pick McDonald’s as their first place of choice to get coffee. However, compared to other big chains found around the USA, McDonald’s coffees taste pretty good! Obviously, you can ask a thousand different people and get a thousand different opinions. For the price, we think McDonald’s coffee is pretty delicious!
McDonald’s coffee tastes good as it is freshly brewed every 30 minutes. Thus, you will never get coffee which has been brewed a long time before you actually place an order.
Moreover, Arabica beans are used and the black coffee is made from a medium roasted blend instead of a dark roasted blend. Due to the lighter blend, the coffee is not as bitter as you might sometimes get from other popular franchises.
In our opinion, McDonald’s coffees taste good. However, as much of a variety as there is on the menu, if McDonald’s would like to continue competing with other franchises around the USA, adding more flavours to the menu should be considered, rather than solely having a plain, chocolate, caramel or French vanilla option.
McDonald’s has recognized that a lot of consumers have been buying and drinking their coffees and maybe not everyone likes going to a McDonald’s restaurant every day to get their coffee. Thus, McDonald’s has come up with packs with everything you could need to make a delicious cup of coffee at home with the same rich aroma and delicious taste of their 100% Arabica coffee!
These are available in K-Cup pods, bags, as well as cans and they come in a variety of blends! As part of the range, McDonald’s offers a Premium Roast, Breakfast Blend, Premium Roast Decaf, French Roast, Colombian, French Vanilla and a Mocha Collection. Quite the variety!
Premium roast is a medium roast blend with a rich aroma and a smooth texture. There is even a non-caffeinated version! The Breakfast Blend is a light roast, has flavor of citrus and a toasty aroma. The French Roast is a bold, dark roasted blend with an intense aroma and a mild taste of cacao, so if you prefer your coffee to be very rich, this is the blend for you! Colombian is a medium-dark roast with hints of fruit in it.
Lastly, McDonald’s has come out with two sweet blends which are the French Vanilla and the Mocha Collection, perfect for any time you would like a bit of a treat! In the Mocha collection, one can choose between Cinnamon Mocha, Chocolate Mocha or even Salted Caramel Mocha. There is definitely something for everyone within the McCafé at Home range!
McDonald’s coffee can be ordered from the McDonald’s App. Bonus: You even get free large fries when you download the McDonald’s app and join MyMcDonald’s Rewards.

If the convenience of having McDonald’s almost around every corner wasn’t good enough, McDonald’s also has a McCafé Rewards Program. Through this program, you can get a free McCafé drink, when you buy 5. However, this is only available on the app. You also earn points on coffee, as well as on other McDonald’s foods!

Let’s face it, a lot of people love a cup of coffee in the morning. The fact that McDonald’s has many drive-throughs all around the states, just makes it a little bit easier for anyone to cave in and get a take out coffee in the mornings.
With all the different coffees available, McDonald’s has something on the menu for everyone’s liking. Whether it is a hot coffee to warm you up on a cold winter morning or an iced coffee to cool you off on those hot summer months, McDonald’s has got you covered!
