If you know me, you'll know I'm an avid drinker of McCafe Premium Roast Brewed Coffee and have been for the past 5 years. For any of you who love McCafe, you may remember McDonald's coffee before it launched as McCafe in Canada back in 2011. Let's just say, it's come a long way!
Today I had the opportunity to be a part of McCafe, A New Way To Cafe event, along with a few other Vancouver influencers. The event was hosted by the lovely Anne Parks, Director of Menu Management, who took the time to educate us on the difference between McCafe old and new bean blend, while showcasing their new and improved latte, espresso, and cappuccino brews. Being that McCafe is my go-to coffee on the go, I was really curious to taste the difference between the new beans and see how much better it could get!
Now, I don't claim to be an expert when it comes to coffee, but being that I'm a huge fan of McCafe Premium Roast Coffee, I like to think I know a thing or two about their blend. I take my coffee black and occasionally add expresso, giving the coffee a strong bitterness. However, I found with the new bean, the coffee was a lot less bitter and much smoother. It was also interesting to learn that McCafe beans are sourced from Central and South America and now Indonesia!
Alongside trying McCafe revamped beverages we were also given the opportunity to sample a wide assortment of freshly baked McCafe bakery items. With my favorite being the croissant. Sometimes when I'm treating myself to a speciality drink (or as Chase likes to call it; "treating myself 2 or 3 times a week"...lol), I may add the occasional pastry. The way I look at it, if you're going to get a latte, you might as well indulge! :-)
Thank you McCafe Canada for hosting such an awesome event and having us all!
