McDonald’s Hong Kong announced that it will stop selling all forms of its coffee from 6pm on September 4. The fast food chain said that it will discontinue its hot and cold coffees, as well as its premium roast variety. “McDonald’s coffee will officially say goodbye from 6pm. Thank you everyone for your support over the years,” the chain announced on its Facebook page.

While the initial post caused a stir online, the fast food chain updated its followers with another post on its social media pages, stating that this would be a temporary measure implemented in its 250 stores across the city to upgrade its coffee-making equipment and train staff.

From September 5, customers who order coffee as part of set meals will get an automatic free upgrade to a small McCafé Americano. They can also choose a small McCafé white coffee with their meal for an additional HK$2 or a latte for an extra HK$5.

In addition, McDonald’s diners can make à la carte purchases of small McCafé lattes for HK$10 — usually priced at HK$23 — from September 5-September 8 during the fast food chain’s breakfast hours.
