Fellow coffee alties:

We can all throw away all of our roasters, brewers and espresso
machines now that I discovered this post on a Hot deals page:

Mcdonalds coffee + travel mug -- $3, includes 10 refills

Wow! ;-)

McDonald's coffee is now branded by Paul Newman and Green Mountain.
Comes free with sandwich purchase where I reside.

Ha, someone's admitting they eat at Mickey D's? Next thing, you'll be
admitting to frequently grabbing a decaf, double vente, non-fat, extra foam,
vanilla latte at Starbucks. The quality of your responses are now suspect
fella.

Hey Rob, read Len's post/s over on CG where he says he goes to Starbucks ALL
the time & that he's gotta break that expensive habit. Kinda strange as he
roasts his own coffee!?!

Why? Even the nerdiest home roasters occasionally leave their homes.

Neither do I. The upgraded coffee, however, was a "teaser", for
awhile (as someone suggested, possibly with Kona beans), in any event,
with a hint of something less mundane. Hey, what can I say - A:
Offhand, their quarterly profits hit 8.1% this past quarter? B: But
sorry, folks, it's now back to mundane "barely up to stale" coffee
again?

Regionally, there may discrepancies, though - seems I noticed two
purveyors supplying the chain, east and west. I also haven't tried
what their research labs cooked lately cooked up in the form of iced
coffees - evidently a wise marketing venture.

You're right. Some very drinkable Gavina coffee on the West Coast or
Green Mountain in the Northeast at 30 cents each plus a free mug. If I
spent a lot of time on the Interstates, I'd sign right up.

I don't eat at fast food restaurants, so I haven't had tasted the
upgraded McDonald's coffee. But isn't it still pre-ground or are they
grinding before brewing now?

I'm sure it's pregound pillow pack, but, much higher quality than
before and quite drinkable (black, even!). Most of the credit for
McDonald's bottom line turnaround this past year has been given to the
improvement in their coffee.

It would be my first choice for a long drive on the Interstate. I'm
thinking Buttonwillow on the I-5. Around L.A. I have better options,
of course.

I don't know anything about what McDonalds coffee is or whether it's
preground, but I know that I used to think that it was about the worst
coffee around--even worse than Starbucks--and I now think it's pretty
good.

So they've made a giant improvement, and I salute them for it.

I'm in SC so not sure what the premium roast is supposed to be here, but
it's sour as all get out. (Southern expression .... sorry) I guess I've
gotten so used to coffee in our coffee shop that when I have to get some
somewhere else it suffers sadly in comparison.
