This summer, McDonald's is introducing two new McCafé Cold Brew Frozen drinks: frozen iced coffee and cold frappe. These delicious mixed drinks offer a refreshing and cold touch to cold brew and are the perfect treat to cool down and recharge. McDonald's uses 100% Arabica coffee beans, which are known for their smooth and consistent flavor. This type of bean is popular due to its ability to drink, its moderate caffeine content, and its versatility with many foods.
McDonald's premium roast is a medium roast. Last year, McDonald's added espresso beverage options to its McCafé menu, including a caramel macchiato, cappuccino, and americano. Not only do they add milk and sugar to their espresso drinks, but Arabica coffee beans are also a great choice for coffee itself due to their mild flavor profile. Drip coffee is by far the most popular drink at McDonald's: in the United States alone they sell around 500 million cups a day.
McDonald's pre-ground coffee can be used in any coffee machine with a flat bottom filter. The new McCafé Cold Brew coffee being tested can be ordered with or without cream and sugar and can be customized with flavors of French vanilla, caramel or hazelnut. San Diego was chosen as the testing location partly because of the city's coffee culture. Keurig has partnered with McDonald's not only to provide coffee alone, but also K-Cup versions of its espresso drinks.
The two frozen cold drinks will be available on the McCafé menu starting June 13, but only for a limited time. The nutritional information on this website is derived from tests conducted in accredited laboratories, published resources, or information provided by McDonald's suppliers. The main suppliers of McDonald's coffee beans, in addition to McDonald's, are Gaviña Gourmet Coffee, Newman's Own, Green Mountain Coffee and Seattle's Best. If you're looking for a refreshing cold drink this summer, stop by your local McDonald's and try one of their new McCafé Cold Brew Frozen beverages! Although they are popular for an afternoon treat, they may not be the best option for morning coffee since they are not made with brewed coffee or espresso.
