McDonald’s San Diego County franchise owner Jamie Straza said: “San Diego is a city full of coffee lovers, so it’s an ideal place to test our McCafé cold brew coffee.

“We were first in the country to test All Day Breakfast and we’re thrilled to continue bringing menu innovations to our San Diego customers.”

“These 100% Guatemalan coffee beans produce an extremely smooth, rich cold brew that isn’t too strong and isn’t watered down.”

McDonald’s is allowing customers to order the McCafé cold brew coffees with customised flavours such as French vanilla, caramel and hazelnut.

The handcrafted McCafé marble cold brew is made by adding sweet syrup and light cream swirls to the regular McCafé cold brew coffee.

McDonald’s US food innovation manager Wayne Kuhl said: “Whether you prefer your cold brew coffee black or sweet and creamy, we have something for all San Diego coffee lovers.

“These 100% Guatemalan coffee beans produce an extremely smooth, rich cold brew that isn’t too strong and isn’t watered down. It’s the perfect full-flavoured wake-up call or afternoon boost.”

Last month, the global fast food chain announced its commitment to remove preservatives, flavours and added colours from its classic burgers across 14,000 restaurants in the US.
