McDonalds Premium Roast Coffees & a Giveaway

You should start to like Mondays more and more.  Because each Monday you get a new edition of "Whats in Ott, A's Latte'", and.....you can also get FREE coffee at McDonalds.  That's right!  Every Monday morning between now and June 1st with any breakfast purchase you get a free cup of coffee. Coincidence?  Perhaps?  But did you know that McDonalds now offers their McCafé coffee for purchase in grocery stores, so you can brew their coffee at home?!?!  

One of my lucky Latte' drinking reader will win a McCafé Coffee Prize Pack as pictured below to help them get ready in the morning and enjoy their coffee.  But before I get to the giveaway at the bottom of this blog post, let me tell you a little bit more about the McCafé coffees.
McDonald’s USA suppliers source 100 percent Arabica coffee beans from Central and South America for McDonald’s national McCafé Coffee blend and espresso blend served in restaurants. The Arabica beans are high-grown to obtain great quality for the perfect blends of coffee and espresso. Generally the McCafé Espresso is a full-bodied, medium dark roasted coffee with rich coffee flavor and hints of chocolate. The signature McCafé drip coffee blend is a smooth, bright, balanced medium roasted coffee.

I recently tried their McCafé Premium Roast Medium Ground Coffee from the grocery store in my home drip coffee maker.  This coffee offered a well balanced cup that could stand alone and be drank black or handle cream and sugar depending on your taste preferences.  The in-store coffee comes in light and medium roasts, decaf, a breakfast blend as well as some flavors like French Toast and French Vanilla.  These coffees also come in K-Cups and Tassimo to accommodate any home brewing system you may use.

In their restaurants McDonalds also offers a collection of McCafé beverages.  Mochas come in regular and caramel using whole or non-fat steamed milk and chocolate syrup, topped with whipped cream and a chocolate or caramel drizzle. Regular and Caramel Mochas can also be enjoyed Iced.  Latte's are made with whole or non-fat steamed milk with the option to add Caramel, Hazelnut, French Vanilla or sugar-free French Vanilla syrups.  And Frappés are blended ice beverages available in three different flavors: Mocha, Caramel, and Chocolate Chip (combination of mocha, caramel and chocolate chips). Each Frappé includes a hint of coffee and is topped with whipped cream and a chocolate or caramel drizzle.
