NEW YORK (AP) - Fans of McDonald's coffee will soon be able to brew a cup of it at home.
The world's biggest hamburger chain says it will test selling a variety of packaged ground and whole-bean coffee at supermarkets and other retail outlets starting next year. The test will also include single-cup servings.
McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., did not disclose any other details. But the company already started selling McCafe packaged coffee in Canada late last year. Those bags weighed about 12 ounces and cost about $7.
McDonald's is teaming up with Kraft Foods Group Inc. to distribute the coffee.
The company did not say how widespread the test would be.
