McDonald's wants to be a bigger player in the global coffee business.

The world's biggest hamburger chain on Thursday highlighted beverages as one of its key growth opportunities during a daylong presentation for investors.

McDonald's CEO Don Thompson noted that coffee is the fastest-growing category in its global drinks business and that the company has less than its “fair share” of the market.

“Anyone that stops off to get a cup of coffee anywhere, that's an opportunity,” Thompson said.
