McDonald's java isn't exactly dominating the coffee game. We'll gladly pay a little more for coffee from a higher-end joint if it's available. That being said, after hours of driving on the highway, it is nice to know that you have a cheap alternative to that rough, reheated gas station bean juice. Grabbing a large coffee for the same price you would have paid for a small is a great feeling after long, hard days on the open road.
