McDonalds Instead of Starbucks: Brand Heresy?

I just read this in an article from Bloomberg :
Marc Greenberg, a Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. analyst in New York, reduced his target price for Starbucks shares to $32 from $37 today, saying that positive consumer reaction to McDonald’s brew poses a threat to the coffee chain.
Yesterday, Jason West, a Deutsche analyst in Boston, upgraded McDonald’s shares to “buy” from “hold” on its “expanding beverages opportunity.”
Will you be going to McDonalds for your coffee instead of Starbucks?
