McDonald’s has created a new signature coffee called the ‘Australiano’ by combining wattleseed with its famous coffee bean blend. It took a year for the fast food restaurant to perfect its new coffee, which features a hint of chai in its flavour profile.
McDonald’s Australia’s Group Brand Manager, Lancy Huynh, told FEMAIL, “We’re excited to give Aussie coffee lovers a brew they can put their name on with pride.” “Our expert baristas searched no further than our own backyard for a defining Australian ingredient – native wattleseed – to create a uniquely delicious coffee.”
In true Australian fashion, the Australiano can be served hot or cold, according to the McDonald’s team. Australia-wide, McCafe’s is now offering the coffee for a limited time.
The McCafe van will also travel between Melbourne and Brisbane, allowing lucky coffee enthusiasts to sample it for free. “Despite being a nation of coffee aficionados, we have no national coffee,” Lancy Huynh continued. As a champion of Australian coffee culture, McCafé sought to rectify this oversight by creating a blend that Australians can proudly endorse.
