A cafe over in New York have embraced Māori Language Week to the fullest by offering a half price coffee to customers who order in Te Reo! 

The owner, Craig Nevill-Manning, heard about how cafes over here were getting behind the initiative, so he thought that there was no reason as to why he couldn't do it.

"I think it's a great idea, because the Māori language is often something we reserve for special occasions - at least in my circles," Craig said.

"This way it brings it into something we can enjoy every day."

"I think it's a really cool idea, and it works out well because a few of us from New Zealand are doing Māori lessons here [in New York], so it timed out well that we could put it to use,"

What a cool idea, would you order in Te Reo if it meant a discounted coffee?
