Tagline Great tasting coffee, simple
Philosophy Created by Leo Burnett London, the humorous campaign shows McCafé coffee as having the same quality as exclusive coffee shops such as 100% freshly ground Arabica beans and organic milk, but without the superfluities that a customer doesn’t need, particularly when getting a grab and go coffee. The hero 30 second spot focuses on a range of pretentious coffee shop ‘frills’ such as a ball pit and an in-house DJ. Our leading character asks the barista for ‘just a latte’ and the viewer sees in the background various customers struggling with their surroundings; from a couple’s quiet conversation being drowned out by the DJ, to a suited customer trying to drink a cappuccino whilst being subjected to a vigorous massage. As the film continues, the main character looks disappointed at her extortionate £5.30 coffee. All of this stands in sharp contrast to the final scene, as our central character is seen in McDonald’s ordering a latte in a quick, fuss-free and simple way. The spots end with the strapline ‘Great tasting coffee, simple’.
