McCafé Coffee Now Available in Your Grocery Aisle & MMV Giveaway for a TASSIMO Brewing System

Vancouverites like us can now add McCafé coffee to our grocery lists. Beginning this month, McDonald’s Canada is now expanding its coffee offerings with the launch of McCafé Premium Roast ground coffee, which is made from high quality 100% Arabica beans. In addition to a “just add water” blend, it will also be available in single-serve pods compatible with both the TASSIMO and Keurig brewing systems.

If you drink coffee at home, it’s not a surprise. Coffee is the beverage of choice among Canadians with at home being the place where two-thirds of coffee is consumed. While drip coffee makers are still popular, 33% of Canadian households now own a convenient single cup brewer, like a Keurig or TASSIMO device.

To go with McCafé’s smooth coffee which you can enjoy anytime, anywhere, McCafé has put together a curated list of “Lush Indie Pop” tunes on Songza, perfect for home, the office or when you’re on the go.

Modern Mix Vancouver would love for our readers to experience this premium roast of McCafé coffee in the comforts of their own home. Thanks to McCafé, we are giving away a TASSIMO brewing system and other McCafé goodies, to one lucky reader. Read on for details.

Arrive at work, get my 8oz Starbucks Pike place machine brewed drink. 10am hits, I run to Mcdonalds and get one of their McCafe drinks. Routine starts again at noon.
