Getting Through my Morning Commute with McCafé


This post is sponsored by McDonald’s, but the thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. The new McCafé espresso menu available at participating McDonald’s.

Being the opposite of a morning person comes with real struggles. The struggle to get out of bed, the struggle to get out of the house on time for work, and of course the morning commute struggle. Anyone else on the same struggle bus?

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot better at getting up on time now that I started setting multiple alarms. My mornings always seem to start off on the right foot when I’m not rushed. But no matter how much earlier I get up I still have to face the inevitable, the dreaded commute. Here in San Diego the morning commute is busy. Everyone is on their way, including myself, to work that 8-5 job to earn that paycheck. 

My 15 minute drive without traffic easily turns into 30+ minutes during the morning rush hour. Granted it could be worse, I could live in Los Angeles, San Francisco, or some other busy city and sit in hours and hours of traffic. But come on, is there anyone who really likes to sit in traffic? No matter how short or long the commute is, traffic is never ever fun!

So before anything this girl goes and gets her coffee. I head over to my local McDonald’s that’s conveniently less than 2 miles away and I grab my favorite beverage from the ew McCafé Espresso Menu, the Vanilla Cappuccino. Oh yes, you read that right! Just wait until you hear what else they have on their new menu. 🙂

This frothy cappuccino is just what I need to perk me up and get me in a good mood for my morning commute. It has the perfect balance of vanilla flavor and bold espresso. On top of tasting amazing, the prices are budget friendly too.

The McCafé drinks make for a perfect commute companion and I even gave my Cappuccino its own special place for the drive, the cup holder, so it’s right there for me to sip on ;). 

Whether you’re a work commuter like myself, running errands in the morning, or heading off to school, nothing comes before coffee.. The new McCafé Espresso Menu allows you to enjoy those café-quality espresso drinks like the Vanilla Cappuccino, Caramel Macchiato (iced/hot), Mocha (iced/hot), and a popular fall favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte (Available Sept-October 31st). 

There are so many new beverages that McCafé is adding to the menu that it can be hard to decide which drink to try first. So to make things easier, and affordable you can grab any small McCafé beverage for only $2! I’m stuck on the Vanilla Cappuccino right now. A la carte only. Limited time only at participating McDonald’s. Cannot be combined with any other offer or any combo meal. ©2017 McDonald’s.

And if that wasn’t good enough, well here’s another incentive. When you buy 5 any size McCafé beverages, you get one any sized McCafé beverage free with the McDonald’s App*. Can I get a #winning? I love incentives like this especially when it’s something you get often. It’s nice to be rewarded. 🙂

To see how awesome the new McDonald’s McCafé Espresso Menu is for yourself, head to your nearest participating McDonald’s. Prepare to amazed by the variety of choice and the incredible flavor!
