Whether you love getting ready for the Christmas season early, or whether you refuse to get festive until December, tis’ the season for winter beverages at McDonald’s, and it couldn’t come soon enough! If it isn’t good enough news for cold Canadians that McDonald's festive drinks are coming back, $1 coffees are also returning to McDonald’s Canada for the chilly season, and it’s all starting on November 12.

It gets pretty cold in the run-up to winter in Canada, and most people survive by constantly having a warm drink in their hands. Thankfully, McDonald’s Canada is happy to provide us with extra-affordable hand-warmers and will be offering discounted coffee between November 12 and December 8.

From November 12, Canadian coffee-lovers will be able to get any size McCafé Premium Roast Coffee for $1, or any small latte for just $2. While only small lattes are eligible at the $2.00 promotional price (including the festive Peppermint Latte!) you can upgrade any drink for an additional fee.

Last year, these discounted McDonald’s Canada coffees were served in a special Christmas cup, but it’s not yet clear whether it will be the same for 2019. The 2018 promotion lasted between November 13 and December 10, so it’s looking like this will be a pretty similar deal. 

If you’ve never been lucky enough to try the festive goodness that is the McDonald’s Peppermint Latte, you’re in for a real treat this fall. On their website, McDonald’s Canada describes the beverage as, “A festive take on our classic latte."

The website continues, "It's made with our signature McCafé 100% ethically sourced Arabica bean espresso, topped with fresh milk, steamed and frothed, sweetened with a chocolate peppermint syrup, and finished with crushed candy cane.” Yum!

If you’re not already gasping for a hot coffee from McDonald’s, their description of the $1 coffee will probably have you dribbling.

Their website says, “Made from 100% ethically sourced Arabica beans, [the coffee is] fire-roasted to slightly darker than medium and tailored to Canadian tastes. A consistently rich, smooth and delicious taste.”

The discounted coffees will continue to have McCafé stickers on them, so you can continue collecting McCafé Rewards while you sip your extra-cheap beverage. Once you’ve collected seven stickers, you’ll qualify for a completely free medium coffee - perfect!

Whether you're a November-Christmas Scrooge or you're putting your Christmas tree up this weekend, the $1 coffee deals and the special Peppermint Latte is sure to get you feeling festive.

The $1 coffee promotion is available at participating McDonald’s locations across Canada, but you can check the availability in your nearest store by clicking here
