McDonald’s McCafe invades Malaysia

June 20th, 2012

Only recently did McDonald’s McCafe made a silent entry into Malaysia through the first McCafe branch in Kota Damansara’s Mc Donald’s.

It was partially silent, as it was not shown on its official website but was announced in McDonald’s Malaysia Facebook page.

My curiosity led me to make a visit and try the McCafe experience during the second day of its opening. Truth be told, I’m not a real coffee drinker. I know how to order my latte but not one that knows how to produce a cup for myself other than using instant packets.

All I know was this McCafe fame kind of killed or gave a tough competition to Starbucks in the US.

The McCafe experience really does mimic Starbucks and the other premium coffee providers albeit at a lower price for its range of handcrafted coffee. The range of its coffee menu is less than half of Starbucks but who’s going to complain if one can get a simple Cappucino, Flat White, Americano, Mocha, Latte, Espresso, Iced Latte or Iced Mocha with prices between RM 4.50 to RM 6.50?

Of course, unless you’re a total premium coffee experience fan.

You even get a foamed ‘M’ to go with it.

All you need to do is select your caffeine fix at the counter, pay up and then wait for the baristas to prepare your drink.

I’m looking forward to their opening in other branches so I might drop in for a coffee once in a while.
Friends of mine said this is good, probably could bring down the price of Starbucks. I’m not too sure. There are Starbucks fans and there are people who wants to get more shots of coffee. 🙂
What say you?
