McCafe K-Cups from McDonald's Now in Stores
AB on a recent trip to Shaw’s in Bangor, Maine was surprised to see McCafe coffee in K-Cup form. Shaw’s offered both ground coffee and K-cups, and the K-cups come in the following varieties:
- Medium Roast
- Dark Roast
They are produced by Kraft foods and are fully licensed with Keurig. They run $7.99 for a box of 12, and since they are fully licensed the McCafe K-Cups will work in all K-Cup Brewers including Keurig 2.0.

I stumbled upon the McCafe K-Cups this past week at our local grocery store and my reaction was "Whaaaat? No Way! ". I don't eat McDonalds food, but love their coffee. It is very rich in flavor and very smooth, not bitter at all. I bought a box of the Medium Roast K-Cups and was not disappointed .... It tastes exactly like the restaurant brewed coffee :-) I will definitely continue to purchase this brand of K-Cup.
That's a lot cheaper than Canadian McCafe K-cups, also ours are open basket types, if they taste as good, I will smuggle a case over here.
We've had McCafe Single Cups in Canada for the past few months sold in grocery stores & McDonalds restaurants, but Kraft Canada decided to use the UpShot format instead of going the fully-licensed route. The only licensed version they have are T-Discs for the Tassimo system.
You can see the UpShot cups here: http://bit.ly/1r2yQJy
As a result, I'm curious to see if they introduce these new licensed K-Cup versions in Canada or continue with the UpShot solution instead? Unless you've got a freedom clip or use one of the many hacks, the UpShot cups can't be used in Keurig 2.0 brewers.
