# McDonald’s Coffee at home?

So I'm addicted to McDonald's coffee in the morning, to the point I drive there just about everyday for it. Is there a way to make it at home exactly like they do? Can you buy the same ground coffee they use?

thanks, Darrell

• their beans are 100% Arabica Beans grown in South America. A nice thing is that McDonalds use Rainforest Alliance Certified Coffee. Next time you are in a grocery store look to see if they carry Yuban or Farmers Brothers. They are both 100% arabica (but check the label), and they both have products that have the Rainforest Alliance Certification. I doubt you can taste the difference but it's nice to do something nice for the environment. A free trade certification is also nice to get.

If you don't own a coffee maker, then just get a Melitta coffee filter holder which can make up to 16oz of coffee at a time. And it's pretty fool proof. Just boil the water in a microwave.

I'm not sure if ALL Rainforest Alliance Coffee is organic, but it might say on the label. Another nice thing to look for is bird friendly and Shade Grown. Shade Grown coffee has a different taste - i think its better (but thats subjective). Shade Grown coffee is the best for the environment. It will also be more expensive than Yuban.

But anyway, McD's beans are nothing special - just 100% Arabica, which most coffee is. Brewing a good cup is just a little bit tricky - but crucial. (filtered water might help, too). the biggest advantage of McD is because of their volume their coffee is always fresh (in the am). but that's not even an issue at home.

Oh, and a cup of coffee at home will cost between 20 and 30 cents depending on the cost of the beans. or about 50 cents if you use K-cups. So if you want to get an expensive coffee maker - its ok- it will still pay for itself. Not counting the coffee maker (and filters), and say you're saving $1.50 a day.... you'll save about$500 a year.
