Gosh...it must be like eating a bath sponge I can see why they might not be wildly popular!

Press if I do have one. Interesting to note how many positive remarks there are for MacDonalds; my husband is a dedicated MickyD coffee aficionado and has been for years, he says they are better by far from the rest.
It's true that MD coffee is pretty good.

My missus bought a can of TH coffee a while ago and sneakily brewed a pot of it. I took one swig and asked if the milk had gone off.

I still say Tim Hortons Dark Roast is good. It's relatively new.

I wouldn't dream of buying it to make at home, with so many other choices available.

When you're spending the day in hospital with someone and it's either instant from the kitchenette, some anonymous and weak stuff from the hospital restaurant or Dark Roast from the TH, then it's Dark Roast every time.

But if I'm downtown and want coffee, then it's less likely to be TH.
But then you might be eating in somewhere like Cora's with free refills thinking how weak it is while your fellow diners drink from the same pot and say it's too strong.

Maybe that's the TH problem - "one size fits no-one" as I always used to say when seeing clothes marked one-size.

If I were downtown and thirsty, I wouldn't head for a coffee shop. There are better place to get refreshment.

For us, at home, Van Houtte French Roast.
