McDonald's coffee beats Starbucks

I've been saying it for some time, but now I have Consumer Reports on my side. Starbucks makes lousy coffee.
They may be unlikely competitors, but McDonald's is giving Starbucks a run for its money when it comes to coffee.

According to a report published in Consumer Reports magazine, McDonald's serves up a better cup of joe than the mega coffee chain.

Testers compared a medium cup of black coffee from McDonald's, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks. They found the best cup of java under the golden arches.

The magazine said McDonald's coffee was "decent and moderately strong" while the coffee from Starbucks "was strong, but burnt."
"Burnt." That's exactly the way I'd describe Starbucks' coffee.
