McCafe introduces the Australiano

22 May 2022

25 May 2022, Australia: Americans have the Americano, and now, Australians have the Australiano – a new signature coffee from McCafé designed to treat resident coffee aficionados to a flavour combination of native Australian wattleseed, chai and McCafe’s locally-roasted coffee beans.

Launching on 25 May for a limited time only, the Australiano can be served hot or iced. It’s truly coffee fit for an Aussie.

“We are excited to give Aussie coffee lovers a brew they can proudly put their name to,” said 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 wattleseed – to create a deliciously unique coffee.”

Lucky Aussies will get the chance to try the Australiano for free, as McCafé takes to the road later this month on a 2,000km journey from Melbourne up the Eastern Seaboard to the Sunshine State.

“Despite being a nation of coffee connoisseurs, we don't have a coffee to call our own,” continued Lancy Huynh. “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 is a true Aussie success story, having 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.

The Australiano will be available in all McCafé restaurants nationwide, via the MyMacca’s App and

McDelivery from Wednesday, 25 May, for a limited time only.
