    yeah, apparently they're trying to change their image... good luck.

    It's an organic Green Mountain blend from Newman's Own Organic...

    Sipping on some McDonalds NEW Premium Roast Coffee this morning and it's not that bad. It's a bit better than their old coffee but at the same time it's not great. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

    McDonalds has different suppliers around the country. The Northeast is Green Mountain Coffee. There are 4 other roasters around the country. Rumor has it that Seattle's Best is in the Pac Northwest, S&D is in the Southeast. I don't know the other two. It doesn't really matter - they are following a recipe.

    The branding is consistent except Green Mountain, who is using their Newman's own brand - make sense, Paul's name on their salad dressing made the category.

    The single coffee profile allows them to leverage their media across the country. If they tried different regional roasters and branded it that they, they would need that many more commercials. Very expensive.

    If you own a coffee shop - give it a try. You've got to know how the market is moving. Don't stick you nose in the air and get flattened by the world's largest food service company.

    ick. I've tried it, I personaly don't like it. I don't even like McDonald's however. My friends go there so I decided to try it.

    J.H. is correct it is currently SBC in Washington, however, that could change seeing that Starbucks owns SBC...Let's see what happens

    I tried it .. why not ?? It was free !!

    I'll tell you what .. they shot themselves in the foot .. their old coffee was what it was ... it was at least different then other fast food coffe and and had some character .. also at 5:00 am in the morning with a hang over it did the trick.

    Now there "good" coffee is more or less the same old same old that most fast food places sell. A blunder for McDonald's ... indeed.

    Good Day ...
