THE ’90s are calling — they want their coffee back.
After more than two decades the humble cappuccino is still Australia’s favourite coffee, according to the country’s biggest coffee chain, while the Kiwi-imported flat white “peaked” in popularity in 2012.
To mark the 25th birthday of McCafe, which opened its first location in Melbourne in 1993, McDonald’s has dug into its data to reveal the cappuccino has remained a longstanding favourite.
“People just love a cappuccino,” said McDonald’s Australia marketing director Jo Feeney. “If we look back five, 10, 20 years, it’s really consistent in terms of the cappuccinno being about half of the coffee we serve. Given we’re the biggest provider of coffee in Australia, that’s probably a number that would be representative.”
