McDonald's has announced it will run its first Free Coffee Event. You can get a free small McCafe coffee during breakfast from March 31 through April 13 at participating McDonald's locations.

Greg Watson, senior vice president, McDonald's US Menu Innovation, says in the announcement, "We take a lot of pride in our breakfast offerings and our McCafe coffee is a great complement to our breakfast lineup. That's why we're excited to share it with our guests, on us. This event is McDonald's way of encouraging new guests to try McCafe Coffee while giving our breakfast lovers even more reason to enjoy the great taste of our signature blend.

McDonald's first introduced its McCafe offerings in 2009. In addition to regular coffee, McDonald's also sells iced coffee, lattes, mochas and more.

CNN/Money reports that the free coffee offers is part of a new breakfast battle with Taco Bell. Taco Bell recently launched an expanded breakfast menu that includes the Waffle Taco. Take a look:
