McDonald’s Dubai is giving away free coffee – and no this is not a drill.
It’s International Coffee Day next week, which means java heads the world over will have the chance to bask in a whole week celebrating these brilliant beans.
Global fast food chain McDonald’s is marking the occasion with seven days of early morning coffee giveaways, starting on Saturday September 30. Just walk in to any McDonald’s store from 6am until 10am, and pick up a cup of freshly roasted coffee, made from 100 percent Arabica beans, for absolutely nothing.
The chain has been making a real effort to boost its coffee quality over the past few years, and it has done a good job, with its McCafé beverages getting tastier, and the range getting bigger. Until Friday October 6, you can get your hands on tonnes of free coffees, which extends across its range of drinks, and includes Americanos, cappuccinos, espressos, lattes and mochas.
“We understand how important the coffee culture is for consumers in the UAE and we are committed to continuously evolve our offerings to give customers the taste and convenience that they expect from McDonald's,” said Walid Fakih, GM of McDonald’s UAE.
Important indeed. We can’t think of many better ways of starting the day, so fill your boots at any of McDonald’s’ 162 stores across the UAE (except airport and Kidzania destinations) and treat yourself to some caffeine-induced shakes for the week.
McDonald’s also recently brought its world-famous milkshakes to Dubai, after a long-term absence from its menus. You can now get your hands on chocolate-oreo and strawberry flavours, which launched last month and cost Dhs11 each, unless you’re upgrading a regular meal deal, in which case it’ll set you back an extra Dhs5.
It really is going to be a good week.
Free. Sat Sep 30 to Fri Oct 6 6am-10am. Various locations across Dubai, www.mcdonalds.com
