McDonalds to sell lattes to Brits

Fast-food retailer McDonald’s is to target the rapidly expanding British coffee market by selling espresso-based drinks alongside Happy Meals and Big Macs. McDonalds said it sold 84m cups of coffee last year and, since re-launching its coffee business three years ago, sales have jumped 39 per cent. The food chain expects to cash in on the expanding British coffee market, which is expected to grow by some £2bn by 2012.
