McDonald’s Hot Coffee Case Due Date: Wednesday 10/28 McDonald’s sells over a billion cups of coffee each year. McDonald’s consumer research showed that customers prefer coffee to be extremely hot so it required its coffee to be served at 180-190 degrees Farenheit. (Home-brewed coffee is generally 140-145 degrees and coffee sold by many other fast food chains at the time was served at 160-180 degrees.) In 1992, Stella Liebeck, aged 79, ordered coffee at an Albuquerque, New Mexico McDonald’s drive-thru.
