McDonalds McCafé has released the Australiano, a new signature coffee with flavours of native Australian wattle seed and chai.
Launching on 25 May for a limited time, the Australiano, using McCafe’s locally roasted coffee beans, will be available in all McCafé restaurants nationwide, via the MyMacca’s App and McDelivery.
“We are excited to give Aussie coffee lovers a brew they can proudly put their name to,” says Lancy Huynh, Group Brand Manager at McDonald’s Australia.
“Our expert baristas looked no further than our own backyard for a defining Aussie ingredient, native wattle seed, to create a deliciously unique coffee.”
Australians will get the chance to try the Australiano for free, as McCafé takes to the road later this month on a 2000-kilometre journey from Melbourne to the Eastern Seaboard to the Sunshine State.
“Despite being a nation of coffee connoisseurs, we don’t have a coffee to call our own,” says Lancy.
“As a champion for Aussie coffee culture, McCafé wanted to right this wrong and craft a blend that Aussies can proudly put their name to.”
McCafé will be touring to St Kilda Beach, Catani Gardens on 28 May from 7am to 1pm, and Federation Square, Melbourne on 10 June from 2pm to 6:30pm.
New South Wales is the next stop, with McCafé visiting Bondi Beach Surf Live Saving Club on 18 and 19 June from 7am to 1pm.
Finally, McCafé will tour to Brisbane, visiting King George Square on 25 June from 7am to 1pm and Queen Street Mall on 26 June from 8am to 2pm.
McCafé first launched in the laneways of Melbourne back in 1993. Today McCafé serves up more than 300 million cups of barista-made coffee and hot drinks in a year and one in every four cups of coffee sold in Australia every day is from a McCafé.
