You're still sipping that watered down stuff?
Anybody have the caffeine count for McDonald’s? I don’t think any chain uses robusta coffee anymore as we’d taste it a mile away, but the coffee to water ratio is a way to play with the price. The caffeine count is higher at Starbucks compared to Tim Hortons, so that would indicated less coffee per volume at Tim Hortons (but they give you more volume per $).

This article indicates the coffee at McDonald’s is quite diluted. Not necessarily a bad thing considering our cold winters, but something to consider before returning to McDonald’s after prices return to normal (or attempting to stay awake with McDonald’s coffee).

An Xtra large at McDonald’s is 660ml, the Tim Hortons version is 678ml and a Venti at Starbucks is 591ml (in the real world, the shape of the cup will also impact how much coffee you get, as the cup is rarely filled to the rim).

Be sure not to exchange your free coffee stickers for $1coffee. Wait until December 11.
I always exchange for a McCafe Cappuccino or Latte

Got an XL. It lasted me the whole day. My location had no napkins. These franchisees hiding all the napkins is just ridiculous.

will tea be the same price? I don't drink coffee
First world problems? ;-) Not that long ago, people used to boil water at home. If you don't drink coffee why did you click on this thread? Just kidding, I'm lazy too. I will wait 5 min in line and pay $1 instead of making it at home...

You ordered a coffee, what do you need a napkin for? I've seen deadbeats fill their pockets so they can stock up for the house, classy stuff.

After all said and done, I'm okay paying for less coffee, as long as it taste like coffee :)

Could it be to wipe one's mouth? Or one's hand when you remove the lid to get the last drop out of the cup?

I tasted Tims latte twice after they switched to one size and it tasted gross. Tim is going downhill.

I switched to McCafe and I'm not looking back.

Yup, it was $1.05 taxes in! Got it around 6:30 am when the kiosks were free so I'm not sure how crowded it will get with this promo in place.

I just saw a TV commercial for the $1 coffee! McDonald’s is really going all in. It was during the Daily Show right before the Apu hater showed up. Hmm, now there is a Subway commercial. And now a Dairy Queen commercial plugging their burgers.

They also have it on their website, mentioning it is 100% Arabica beans, as if there is any chain that uses robusta. https://www.mcdonalds.com/ca/en-ca/prom ... rewed.html

By the way, it is quite possible McDonald’s won MacLean’s web-poll because it is the most diluted coffee on the market. Just a theory based on caffeine counts.

McDonald’s USA had a similar promotion back in January. Although obviously C$1 is less than US$1.
