McCafe my lilly white butt........



I am SO peeved at McDonald's this morning.

Today was just "one of those mornings" where nothing went right and I had no time to make some "home brew". I noticed the other day that Mickey D's in Waterville is now serving Mochas--rock on--I'm there!

I go to the Drive-thru, choke on the fact that I am paying MCDONALDS $3.29 for a large Mocha, get my drink and head out to zip down the trail for work.

I thought the drink seemed a little "light" for a Large--and then I felt it and it was warm only half way up the cup--I opened up the lid and the damn thing is only half full of coffee--the other half is full of whip cream (Oh, did I mention that I said "very light whip" with my order). So I basically got a SMALL coffee and a crap load of whip cream.

THEN--I tasted it. OMG--I think McDonalds has found a way to serve up burnt ASS.

Now, I am a relatively new coffee drinker--only started to drink it because I had to mystery shop some Starbucks in the area--and decided to try the crap out--and--I'm hooked. I realize that espresso is a more concentrated coffee and is stronger--but I don't think SLUDGE is what the Italians had in mind. Really--this is the WORST thing I have ever tasted. I came into work and added about 4 Splenda's and it's only bearable. I could have paid only a little more and stopped into Beaners down the street from my office and gotten a delicious cup of yummiliciousness (new word--Jot that down).

I think an call into the Waterville store is in order--this is unacceptable! Don't go getting all "high faluten" and compete in the specialty coffee market if you are not willing to do it right.

I tried McDonald's latte once. I think it made me sterile. That was the vilest thing I've ever drank, even worse than warm Jager shots. Someone should shoot Ronald for serving up this crap.
