I too am a sheep that sits in line for Tim Hortons Coffee

    I dont know what's gotten over me... I've noticed myself sitting in line every morning at Tim Hortons to get my daily coffee and bagel.

    I dont know why I do... there are bagels and coffee provided at my office for free, but for some strange reason I stop by Timmies and wait in line for like 10 minutes to get my daily dose of Tim Hortons Crack.

    MMMMmmmmMMMM Tim Hortons...

    Slave to the French Vanilla!

    french vanilla flavour > coffee flavour

    coffee caffeine (in mg) > french vanilla caffeine

    coffee wins due to it's superiority in the caffeine contest.

    i too am hooked on tim's.. if only they would start selling beef patties, they would pass coffee time as having the all time best selection of goodies.

    they need to come out with a stronger brew - the shit they serve is weak and bland. after starting making my own coffee on weekends i don't drink it much anymore.

    wish i still had my thread saved on how tim hortons is trying to dominate the world..

    I sit in my car in line.... the line is usually 15 cars. I used to laugh at anyone who would stand/sit in line for that long just to get a coffee... and now I understand.

    I swear, they should make IV coffee.

    i caste the first stone. sucker.

    i did drink it every day, but found out that coffee could actually taste better (i.e. they way it's meant to be). i usually use timmy's grinds and put in a tablespoon per cup.

    it wakes me up nice and good.

    Try being stuck working for Timmy's..I am truly the sad one [​IMG] But I do get whatever I want for free [​IMG]
    And yes we do laugh at all the people lined up in between classes that are always late for their next class because the line up is sooo huge. Even though I am myself one of those addicted *sigh*

    Personally, I think Tim Horton's is shit. Their coffee is awful. Their tea is bad too. If it wasn't for the odd tasty blueberry muffin, I would have no use for Timmy Ho's.

    The thought that I was just a part of a dependant pathetic mass has crossed my mind many a time while in the line at timmies, so to take the edge off I alternate standing in line and driving through every few days.

    uhhh how meger.

    it means that i have placed the first stone in the caste system. i figure it'll fit nicely in with the brahmins, priests and teachers.

    eat it.

    besides, i'm only half way done my earl grey, hot ... well it's more like earl grey, luke warm now.

    One more thing about Timmy's

    Sometimes I get 4 coffees or so for my collegues on my way to work... but then I must take an elevator ride up 10 floors at 8am with all sorts of Middle Aged Executive Zombies.

    Needless to say... most of the time I'm lucky if I make it up the elevator ride with my own coffee left.

    I've had to fight for my coffee before. A battle of wits with the CEO of the company... it was not pretty... but I got out of there with my coffee and my job!

    after i 'eat it', will the stone be reincarnated as fertilizer?

    now i agree, you *are* a heretic! [​IMG] if you like your coffee stronger, try a different blend. most donut shops sell some kind of 'columbian' coffee, of which they are proud. columbian beans and/or blends are a decent tasting coffee.

    however, if you're into stronger coffees, you need to try some other blends out. for instance, i drink mainly sumatra mandheling - a bean originating in indonesia. it has a slightly stronger, more bitter taste than columbian. or try some of the african beans, like a kenya estate blend. those are nice and dark, and considerably stronger/tastier than columbian.

    for me, tim horton's coffee is what i drink when i *need* a caffeine fix and i'm not at home.

    yah! i'm spoiled with the columbian dark roast supreme at baroli's -- alas, can't have timmy's regular coffee anymore. they dump waaaay too much cream and shit in their coffee too.

    but i would kill for a cafe mocha from timmy's every now and then. but that tastes more like hot chocolate than anything else.
