Yesterday McDonalds Japan opened a number of “McCafé” shops around Japan.


They offer seven types of coffee that aren’t available at regular McDonalds restaurants, as well as the two that are (“Premium Roast Coffee” and “Premium Roast Ice Coffee”).


The hot coffees are shown in red. Ice coffees are in blue.

The “Premium Roast Coffee” and “Premium Roast Ice Coffee” are available for ¥120 and ¥220 (depending on size) just like they are at the regular McDonalds restaurants.

The other coffees are:


  • カフェラテ (Cafe Latte) ¥190 / ¥240
  • カプチーノ (Cappuccino) ¥190 / ¥240
  • カフェモカ (Cafe Mocha) ¥250 / ¥300
  • キャラメルラテ (Caramel Latte) ¥250 / ¥300


  • アイスカフェラテ (Ice Cafe Latte) ¥190 / ¥240
  • アイスカフェモカ (Ice Cafe Mocha) ¥250 / ¥300
  • アイスキャラメルラテ (Ice Caramel Latte) ¥250 / ¥300

To promote the McCafé in Tokyo, they’re giving away free cups of hot カフェラテ (Cafe Latte) in specially designed paper cups for a few days.


It says in this ad above that from 3:00PM on 2009 November 3 (yesterday) until 2:59PM on November 6, the McCafé in 渋谷 (Shibuya, Tokyo) will be giving away the small hot カフェラテ (Cafe Latte)…and that the first 1000 customers will receive a special ceramic mug as well.

There will also be a McCafé truck giving the free latte coffees and it’s scheduled to be at Roppongi, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Yurakucho, and Akasaka at various dates and times this month. (If you want to know when and where it’ll be at, then visit the McDonalds Japan website. (if you can’t read it and would like to know the details, then tell me which area or date you’re wondering about in the comments section of this post and I’ll reply)).

      It’s not “huge” here. But I’d say it’s successful.

    Yup, saw the McCafe truck in Roppongi the other day, took a picture, but didn’t get the free coffee as the line up was too loooonnnng.

      Something for free in a big city will generate a long line quickly!

    I wonder if this will be a success as there so many companies offering many varieties of coffee in Tokyo – Starbucks, Tully’s, Doutor, Renoir, New Yorkers (owned by Renoir) etc.

    I’m sure this list could easily be added too. What do you think? Will it be a success?

      Yeah, there are alot of coffee shops in Tokyo…but I think McCafe will probably be successful.

      Tokyo’s a large city. And coffee’s popular.
