McDonalds is the official coffee of The Winter Games and a major Olympics sponsor. To provide “Morale and Kick” to the NBC Today Show (Matt, Savannah, Natalie and Al) NBC ordered Starbucks in a major To Go order. Way to go Seattle! They actually asked Starbucks to set up a shop in the Media Center in Russia during the games. Only NBC Staff are provided access (no public or athletes, unless as a guest on show) . Starbucks also provided 15 Starbucks Baristas (employees) to be there each day in brewing the favorite choices among the NBC Crew and Staff.
