I. Love. Coffee.
I used to sneak sips of coffee from the grownups after dinner when I was about five years old. Some would say that explains a lot… I say it just makes me an early adopter.
I mostly drink decaf these days, and now, I’ll enjoy my morning cup easier with the Keurig Platinum Plus brewer and Newman’s Own Organics K-Cups sent by McDonald’s! Yay! (I have wanted a Keurig for years!)
This Saturday, September 29 is National Coffee Day! McDonald’s is celebrating by offering a week of free small coffees at participating restaurants in the Eastern US, September 23-29! Stop by and grab a cup!
Did you know here in New England, McDonald’s customers enjoy high-quality Newman’s Own® Organics Coffee, a special blend made with 100% Arabica beans ONLY available at McDonald’s in New England and the Albany, NY area.
I gotta hand it to McDonald’s with their coffee because do you know of another fast-coffee place that serves ORGANIC coffee? And for what? A dollar? I don’t!
This week, I’ll be sitting down (virtually) to have a cup of joe with McDonald’s and Nell Newman, President of Newman’s Own Organics at the McDonald’s® Live Virtual Coffee Tasting Event!
You’re welcome to chime in too!
