Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might be roasted occasionally by the media and other politicians but, according to the coffee chain Cofix, his blend is unrivaled in the Israeli market – as 55% of their patrons asked to get their coffee to go in a cup bearing his name.
Patrons were invited to make a choice between cups bearing the names of other politicians running in the upcoming elections and, at least among Cofix patrons, Netanyahu left all other foam-heads behind with Blue and White leaders Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz getting only 22% of the requests.
Earlier this week, the chain reported they were out of Netanyahu cups and workers were asked to write his name on paper cups by hand to ensure a fair competition.
