Thank you McDonald’s! I love the new McCafe — although I do feel a bit stupid paying $3.59 for a cup of Mickey D’s fancy coffee. (Okay it’s not $5 but it’s really close)
I do have one question? Are you sending out instructions for making this fancy new coffee?
I order a cup each day at the same McDonald’s and there seems to be a coffee making pow-wow happening every time I drive up.
Maybe I’m the only person in my little small town who’s fallen for McCafe. Maybe with all the double cheeseburgers, fries and shakes going out, the workers just forget how to make the McCafes. But that can’t be the case because my non-blogging friend Kathy drinks McCafe, too and she reports the same problem. Lack of consistent coffee making skills.
Somedays my McCafe nonfat, sugar free vanilla cappucino is wickedly perfect and other days, it’s just adequate. I don’t complain for fear that they’ll take away the McCafe and then I’ll be back to buying that gas station cappucino — you know what I mean — the ‘only fill the cup 2/3 full’ kind, which is great in a travel pinch but not what you want to drink on a consistent basis.
So thank you Mickey D’s for some (most of the time) kickin’ good coffee! And the $1 Mickey D’s bucket o’ tea — now that’s a bargain! Probably makes up for the $5 coffee. No, probably not.
I’m off to drink water…. that’s what we caffiene drinkers do to stay healthy. Right?
Sounds (most of the time) delish! However, I know where you can GREAT HOSPITALITY and a mighty fine cup of perfectly steeped Tazo tea for FREE. Except for the fact that you’d have to drive to Tampa to get them. :o)
you make me smile, Mary-Mary! Haven’t gotten McJava yet but it’s been a busy week. We still must plan a lunch or dinner. Happy Friday!
I haven’t gotten on the Starbucks or McCafe bandwagon yet. I’m still drinking my Dunkin Donuts coffee. Mmmmmmmm
This morning I ventured to McDonald’s for my McCafe Latte and they asked if I would like to try the Hot Chocolate. I usually get irritated at the idea of them making suggestions for me as if I am incapable of choosing my own food (I am probably just fussy because I haven’t had my coffee yet, hence the reason for going through the drive-thu in the first place), but for some reason this morning, I decided that a hot chocolate would be nice. I was so dissapointed to discover that my hot chocolate didn’t taste like hot chocolate but instead tasted like hot milk (yuck). Since I didn’t have coffee to fall back on, I continued to drink my hot milk down to the last sip. But oh, how surprising to find every bit of chocolate that should have been equally distributed throughout my hot milk, sitting at the bottom of that last disgusting last gulp! Atleast it woke me up, I guess.
