Hello, I am wondering if you use Newman’s Own Organics coffee anymore?  I no longer see it advertised and am curious if you have stopped.  It matters to me as I follow an organic diet and it so nice to be able to go get a black coffee at McDonald’s whenever I wanted one; you can’t imagine the treat of this convenience!

I appreciate your reply,



Hello Sara:Thank you for your interest in McDonald’s.

McDonald’s uses three major coffee suppliers across the U.S. – Premium Roast Coffee (most restaurants), Green Mountain by Paul Newman (select restaurants on the east coast) and Seattle’s Best (select restaurants in the pacific northwest). Although we don’t have a specific list of coffee suppliers by restaurant, the coffee brand will be listed directly on the cups.

We hope you find this information helpful. Again, thank you for contacting McDonald’s.

    New coffee tastes like sludge. Bitter and. burnt taste. No more for me

    I live in Maine and there is no information on the cup telling me what brand of coffee I’m being served.


    • Hi Brenda, I actually stopped drinking McD’s coffee for a similar reason. I had a hard time getting over the 1st visit and had super trust issues with what was actually in my cup. After I visited a Mc.D’s somewhere else (matter of fact, I think it was in Maine!) and they didn’t have Newman’s Own on the cup so I questioned it and was told some sites in New England serve the Newman’s Own and some don’t, basically if the cup said Mc Cafe it wasn’t organic. Well, then the next time I went to the McD’s down the street from work, they had changed to Mc Cafe cups but insisted it was still Newman’s Own coffee – I was done then.

      I know it’s tough sometimes but good for you for paying attention 🙂 Good luck with the search, let us know if you find a good, organic to-go coffee! Thanks for reading – I think my travel hiatus is over and I have lots of new gardening content, so if you’re interested, sign up for email updates and you’ll be notified when I do finally post something new!
      Enjoy the day!


  3. The coffee at exit e on rt 87 Clifton Park NY is not as good as before. It use to be Newman’s, What ever they are serving it is not as good. Believe me it has changed, thinking about going back to Starbucks.


    • No, no, no! Starbucks is no better than McDonalds! They are paying money to the Grocery Manufacturers Association, a horrible organization responsible for suing VT for their passing of the labeling law (and much more!). They are using milk that has been fed GMO corn, pumped with hormones and raised in comfy cozy CAFOs. Here is a link to an open letter from Starbucks to the Organic Consumers Association:
      I guess if you’re drinking your coffee black, you would be “safe” with Starbucks, but remember you are voting with your dollars, and Starbucks is going to give your dollars to Monsanto and the GMA and anti-lableing campaigns. (Obviously I have expanded on this since I first wrote about my McD’s coffee treats; I wouldn’t give money to McD’s now-a-days.) I’ve been extremely happy with my organic coffee at home and pouring the left over into a glass bottle stored in the fridge for afternoon iced coffee treats. I hope you can find a good solution soon, I know it’s frustrating! Thanks for fighting the good fight!

    Notice how Jessica McDonald’s Customer Response Center completely left out the magic word ORGANIC when that is the focus of the consumers letter. She is no help.
    Boycott McDonalds low quality crap products with a huge mark ups.

  6. Word, Robert. McD’s can remove all the GMOs and nastiness from their food and sell100% organic food and I STILL wouldn’t give them my business! Too much disregard for our health even after we begged for them to care. Too little, too late.

    I don’t know who they use now but the McDonald’s around my area have the WORST coffee ever. I always looked forward to my trip to McDonald’s in the morning, and suddenly it has changed. Thank God there is a Honey Dew near by.

    Hi I was looking for Paul Newman Organic Coffee and cannot find it any longer can you post who still uses it … looking for organic specifically


    • Hello! It’s been a long time since I cared to look for it so I am not certain on this answer I am about to give, but my best guess is that a few years ago McD’s slowly started making the switch from Newman’s to their own McCafe coffee. It seems as though all McD’s are now serving sole McCafe.
      As far as Newman’s Own Organic coffee, it looks like they made the switch over to Keurig cups which can be found almost everywhere – matter of fact, I bet they serve it at your mechanic’s, or your hairdresser, or any other waiting room you find yourself in!

      As for me, if I’m looking for to-go coffee nowadays, I’ll hit up the local Whole Foods; it’s not the best, but I don’t drink coffee much anymore and it’s better than most other to-gos out there 🙂

    Bullshit response, not that you could expect much less from this poison selling company. Don’t support McDonald’s…
