Fans of McDonald's coffee soon will be able to brew a cup of it at home.

The world's biggest hamburger chain says it will test selling a variety of packaged ground and whole-bean coffee at super­markets and other retail outlets starting next year. The test will include single-cup servings.

McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., did not disclose any other details. The company started selling McCafe packaged coffee in Canada late last year. Those bags weighed about 12 ounces and cost about $7.

McDonald's is teaming with Kraft Foods Group Inc. to distribute the coffee.

The company did not say how widespread the test would be.
