McDonald’s announced Monday it is testing a new cold brew coffee at 74 restaurants throughout San Diego County.
“San Diego is a city full of coffee lovers, so it’s an ideal place to test our McCafé Cold Brew coffee,” said Jamie Straza, a San Diego County McDonald’s franchise owner. “We were first in the country to test all-day breakfast and we’re thrilled to continue bringing menu innovations to our San Diego customers.”
The new coffee can be ordered with cream and sugar and customized with French vanilla, caramel or hazelnut flavors. McDonald’s is also testing McCafé Marble Cold Brew, which adds a sweet creamy syrup and swirls of light cream.
The company said the new coffee selections are made with Arabica coffee beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms in Guatemala. The farms are required to meet stringent environmental and social standards.
“Whether you prefer your cold brew coffee black or sweet and creamy, we have something for all San Diego coffee lovers,” said Wayne Kuh, McDonald’s U.S. food innovation manager. “These 100 percent Guatemalan coffee beans produce an extremely smooth, rich cold brew that isn’t too strong and isn’t watered down. It’s the perfect full-flavored wake-up call or afternoon boost.”
