McDonald's Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region, Inc., Debut Lattes, Cappuccinos and Mocha Coffee Beverages
PHILADELPHIA, May 4 // PRNewswire // -- Following the successful introduction of Premium Roast drip coffee in 2006, McDonald's Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region, Inc., today announced its new line of espresso-based McCafe specialty beverages including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas.
"We're excited to now offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy high quality specialty coffee beverages at a great value in the Greater Philadelphia Region," said Mike Anton, President, Phil-Ad-Mac Owner/Operator Association. "Satisfying customers' evolving tastes has always been a priority for McDonald's."
McCafe coffees start with fully ripened Arabica coffee beans harvested by hand in Central America, South America and Indonesia. Each cup starts with a concentrated shot of espresso, made by pressurizing boiling water through dark coffee beans. From there, each drink is hand-crafted with quality ingredients, like flavorful syrups, rich chocolate, frothy milk and whipped cream.
The new McCafe line includes:
- McDonald's Latte - A soothing blend of aromatic espresso and whole or non-fat steamed milk, customizable with flavored syrup, including caramel, hazelnut, vanilla or sugar-free vanilla. Iced Lattes are also available, served with whole or non-fat milk.
- McDonald's Cappuccino - A blend of espresso and whole or non-fat steamed milk, topped with a cloud of frothy milk. Add a hint of flavor with one of four syrup options, including caramel, hazelnut, vanilla or sugar-free vanilla
- McDonald's Mocha - A decadent medley of espresso, whole or non-fat steamed milk and chocolate syrup, topped with a crown of whipped cream and ribbon of chocolate syrup. Iced Mocha blends are also available.
To celebrate the local debut of the McCafe line products, McDonald's Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region, Inc., will host several events throughout the Region including National Police Week Fundraisers this month.
