    This subject will likely be foreign to all but Canucks. Up here there is almost literally a Tim Hortons joint on almost every corner. When I was in university, there was quite literally one in every building. Needless to say, they are quite popular up here.

    I have a confession to make. I think Tim Hortons coffee sucks! One of the worst I've ever had! I think I could make a better brew filtering my underpants. So I'm wondering, anyone else feel the same?

    A bit of background, I am just old enough to remember the original Tim Hortons, when employees would get up in the wee hours of the morning and actually mix and bake cakes, donuts, etc, rather than the "defrosts" they do now. I loved going in there as a kid, and seeing the different cakes and pies available for purchase in the case. It had much more of a diner feel back in those days, when you could order a slice of fresh pie or cake and sit at the counter with it sipping your coffee. I loved the Black Forest Cake, which we would buy for special events. I have always lamented what Tim Hortons has turned into, and as an adult I have found that I greatly dislike their coffee, despite the millions of purchases they gain each day.

    So, anyone else hate their coffee? I can make better at home for less.

    We have Tim Hortons in Ohio, and while I don't go there much anymore, because I'm trying to get away from carbs and sugar, I have to say, I think their food and coffee is pretty good. McDonalds is famous for having really hot coffee, which has advantages; but one thing I always liked about Timmy Hos was that I could start drinking the coffee right away.

    I agree with you, I can make better coffee at home. I like my coffee strong, and Tim Horton's isn't quite as strong as I'd like. Still, I think it's pretty good, in my opinion. Sorry this isn't what you were looking for!

    It's okay in my opinion, but i'd rather buy a bag of coffee from the grocery store and make it at home.

    Honestly, I never drank coffee in my life, but I have had coffee-flavoured sweets before. My tastes may not be so influenced by coffee, which is why I find anything coffee-flavoured to be disgusting, and I just applied that to coffee as a whole.

    Tim Hortons doughnuts are quite delish though when I had them in Canada, I'll give them that

    Timmies coffee sucks. I drink it because I like coffee, and am Canadian.

    Typical that Jim Green and the boys would make Lahey the coffee mule once he finally got back on the force.

    I've played coffee mule a few times; half an hour in the drive-thru getting fifteen different orders, and nothing for myself.

    I keep hearing that more and more. I think the free coffee days are working for Ronald.
     
  14. Only in Nova Scotia where you're allowed entry back into the police force after attempted murder with a gas tank, cutting break lines and pointing a gun at a person on live tv!

    I think the police union had more than a hand in his wonky reinstatement, and the government probably didn't want to be accused of unfair treatment due to Lahey's propensity to rehearse for a play at the Blandford Recreation Center.

    I wonder if the eclaires were from Timmys.

    I hate Tim Horton's coffee, but then I hate the whole atmosphere in their locations. Much prefer small independent coffee shops with some personality.

    I've heard the tall tale that Tim's puts LSD in their coffee, and that's why they are so popular. I know it's crazy, but my personal dislike of their coffee's distinct flavour has always made me wonder if it could possibly be true.

    This is one reason I don't go there. I still remember the atmosphere of the old Tim Hortons. I wish there were at least some classic locations around serving the classic menu, but all I see are the cookie-cutter fast food joints they favour now.
     
  20. What a fitting thread, "A friend of mine" work in a Tim Horton, he's the "Evening Shift supervisor".

    Let me tell you one thing, Tim Horton is poorly managed, the company makes horrible decision that even the owner of the franchises find dumb. Just a few days ago they rolled out new registers, it changed the whole UI. people that have been working there for 15 years are just so lost and as good as beginner.

    The whole thing sucks too you need to press one more button for most of the thing, which makes command taking longer.

    They keep the coffee 20 mins before throwing it away, but thats no good, everyone thinks Mcdonald's is better.

    If you want it better you can only pick the decaf one because its kept in proper thermos so it can last an hour.

    It doesn't help that we miss labor in my city, they're obligated to close during nights since this summer. (the company charges the owner a "fine" for closing during nights btw, its dumb)

    They also get rid of popular products, the latest being the Cheese & steak sandwich (our best seller sandwich).

    They replaced it with the Steak chipotle sandwich.

    "oh you like this 1$ pastry I see? aight lets split it into small bites and sell'em 40 cents each"

    Don't eat sandwiches

    iirc the company was bought out by foreigners a bit ago.


    Go for a small coffee shop, help the local economy.
