So, here I am in PJ's Coffee (those who have been to New Orleans will know it) drinking a medium Sumatra and thinking "why the hell doesn't this taste as good as a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons?" Granted, PJ's is rather universally known here is not being particularly good, but you would think that a custom roasted coffee would be at least as good as a single blend that is made in freakishly industrial quantities at a doughnut shop.

i actually think its awesome because its not American . Timmie's coffee is not burnt. It depends where you go. If you get it on a weekday morning when there is a new pot every 5 bloody seconds... then its awesome. Near YYZ those Timmie's.. good God my flatulence takes a turn for the worst. However here in the GTA it is by far the best tasting coffee. I cannot stand Starbucks. People take like 5 minutes to order their stupid coffee. Its retarded. Can i have a grande skimmed , low fat, no foam, extra hot, semi cooled whipped cream late with a 270 degree Cinnamon swirl? yes , this order exists!

To be honest, I find that Timmie's coffee is somewhat salty. I guess the urine explains that one ...
Personally for me, although there are alot of coffee shops around here that offer a much better brew, Timmie's is just pure Canadiana. Most of us Canucks pretty well grew up with it, so after a long trip overseas, there's nothing better then hitting the first Timmie's after customs control. Also, I think there is some law up here requiring us to visit a Timmie's 3x a week.
See? I told you. The mules eat the leaves off the coffee plants. The caffeol in the leaves is filtered out in the mules' kidneys, which is excreted in the urine. The idea is to refilter the caffeol-rich urine through the ground, roasted coffee for that unique Tim Hortons flavor.

Quoting AirportSeven (Reply 21): Tim puts an addictive chemical in his coffee that makes you crave it fornightly.
I've heard that one as well. I dislike Tim Horton's. (Burn me too... ). I just don't get why people fancy it so much... it's kinda the McDonald's of coffee shops. I also, for one, prefer Second Cup or Starbuck's. More expensive yes. Better stuff/ambience... definately. You just don't sit and chat in a Timmy's
