To that end, over half of the nation’s coffee lovers claim they’d rather gain 10 pounds than forever give up that cup of Joe. And while many of these caffeine feigns tend to brew their own at home, nearly two-thirds of the drinkers here in American are buying their coffee outside of their home.

Coffee from McDonald’s just barely gets the job done if full and flavorful are your priorities. But more importantly, you may want to beware of the McCafe coffee machine’s level of cleanliness. One McDonald’s employee took to Reddit to warn customers against indulging in a caffeinated beverage at Mickey D’s. The employee claimed:
I work for McDonald’s and make sure everyone that matters to me never orders anything that comes out of the McCafe machine, as these are routinely neglected in practically all the McDonalds. All McCafe beverages run through a horrifically dirty machine—we’re talking 5+ inches of uncleaned, liquid making up its inside parts.
