McDonald's bagged coffee to be available in stores next year

McDonald'sStarbucks Corp.Kraft Foods Group Inc.

If you've ever wished you could sip a hot cup of McDonald's coffee brewed at home, you'll soon get your chance. McDonald's bagged coffee is to be available at your local grocery store next year.

The fast-food chain plans on selling a variety of packaged ground, whole-bean and single-cup servings of the coffee it brews in its restaurants. 

McDonald's has attempted to boost coffee sales in recent years with its McCafe premium-roast coffee menu. Customers can order more than 15 beverages, including ice-blended varieties with flavored syrups, smoothies and shakes. And just like competitor Starbucks, McDonald's has a new seasonal pumpkin spice latte. 

The company started selling packages of McCafe coffee in Canada last year. Each 12-ounce bag is sold for $7. 

Food giant Kraft Foods Group Inc. is teaming up with McDonald's to distribute the coffee. 

Would you give up your Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks store-bought coffee to try the McDonald's variety? Let us know in the comments below.
