McCafe McDonald's coffee

QUESTION: – Does McDonalds have decaf coffee? – Fidel P.

ANSWER: The answer to this question is multilayered and more complex than it ever really needed to be. For decades of business, the answer was no, as the fast-food chain had no decaf options on their coffee menu, either in hot or iced form.

The story suggests that merely asking to speak with the manager on duty and nicely requesting a cup of decaf can have some varied results depending on the location of the McDonalds. According to this source, some McDonalds locations have decaf coffee on-hand, but do not typically make any unless asked by a customer, as there is such a low demand for decaf. 

In mid-2020, McDonalds announced that they were now offering a few decaf menu options regularly at McDonald’s locations across the globe.
