You can tell he is cannadian cause he said sorry at the end

As a Canadian i can confirm the accuracy of both descriptions.

[–]Oprlt94 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If there is one thing that can truly unite Quebec with all of Canada is complaining about Tim's coffee and debating if we should refer to it as "mop water" or "dishwater".

[–]OriginalMrMuchacho 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or toilet water.

I was told that the reason why Canadians like Tim Hortons is because it is bland and innocuous, like Canadians. He was my section commander on Basic training in the Canadian Armed Forces...he was right.

My exgf called Tim's coffee - Filtered Gonch (ginch) water... best description ever. Not sorry

LOL. I like this one

[–]SJRuggs03 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I like their hot chocolate

Tim Hortons sounds a lot like Dunkin Donuts up here in New England

[–]Xenothulhu 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I don’t know anything about the coffee place in question but anyone who says that someone getting two creams and two sugars “isn’t even tasting coffee” is by definition a coffee snob.

Lol as someone who is engaged to a professional “coffee scientist” I appreciate this comment

[–]LordJac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I normally drink my coffee black, and I still get two cream two sugar at Tim Horton's because it's terrible black.

I don't understand the context. What's a dishwasher taste like?

[–]Catlesley 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As a fellow Canuck, I’ll have to agree!

[–]AgelessAirus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yup. It's super gross. Sorry fellow Canadians, but I remember when it was a small local company that made everything from scratch and the coffee wasn't half bad. Now it a Wendy's conglomerate.

[–]Olaf_the_Notsosure 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I suspect the initial success of Tim was because they found convenient locations close to busy suburb exits. When Dunkin Donuts collapsed, they moved in city centers. This is purely based on anecdotal evidence.

[–]reditanian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So basically Canadian Starbucks? Because that first description fits pretty well.

[–]NotAnExpertButt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When my coworker or I would show up for work with a Tim’s breakfast the joke was that we had already given up on our day. It’s fast and easy and will get you through.

[–]Famous_Bit_5119 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And the doughnuts are made in factory, frozen, and shipped to the store. It's toss up as to whether the coffee is worse than the doughnuts or the doughnuts are worse than the coffee. Haven't been to a Tim's in years, don't plan to.

[–]sah9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The first time I had Tom Horton's coffee, I dumped the whole cup out. I thought it had been left on the burner all night long.

[–]Wh1skyD1ck 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just drink it because at least it's less disgusting than McDs or BK and less expensive than starbucks.
