McDonald’s is shooting it’s best shot at  Starbucks, today announcing that it will add espresso-based drinks to the menu.  The caramel macchiato, vanilla cappuccino, and americano, along with all existing McCafé specialty beverages, will be available for $2 for a limited time.   Perhaps in an effort to grab the budget conscious Starbucks drinker, by comparison, a tall caramel macchiato at Starbucks costs nearly twice as much, at $3.95. A tall Starbucks cappuccino costs $2.95, and a caffé americano costs $2.25.
