    I've heard that, but no confirmation besides a rumor.

    So a quick google search later has resulted in learning that in 2009 tims began construction in Hamilton on their own roastery, operation commenced in 2010-2012. Can't find a specific date. Once tims started roasting it's own beans McDonald's picked up the former supplier of tims beans mother parks. So the McDonald's formula is likely very close to the old coffee.

    I love/hate seeing 15-25 a-holes lined up in the drive thru cus they've gotta have their "double double" and their time is evidently worthless. Much like the people that wait in line for 30 mins to fill up their 4 banger at 4c a litre cheaper than the guy across the street. I'm a relatively young man, however, I am certainly dying as each minute passes..... always struggling to manage time and counting those minutes, Im not gonna wait for that line (or any)

    And what the hell is with coffee shop employees calling espresso, expresso, really.... ??

    Each time is a let down. "Oh sorry, we don't have much for doughnuts.. just old fashioned." But its 6am on saturday! Keep your crap !!! Theres a reason thats all thats left. Nobody likes old fashioned. "Oh sorry, you can't have a really simple wrap made of chicken because it's breakfast hours and we only make garbage at this time" If I have to eat another #### Turkey bacon club.......

    Tim Horton would be rolling in his grave!

    Sadly, when my cooler is exhausted, it's often all that's realistically available.

    This video is priceless! Crazy yes, but she does look half normal and clearly had one on deck and they wouldn't let her use the can. In my opinion....

    I would have gone in the parking lot like the truck stop pooper on YouTube, you know, like a gentleman

    I stopped going to Timmies bathrooms in northern Ontario. You can't ever get a stall or wash your hands because there is 3-4 new Canadians having a shower in the sink(s) and snorting the entire contents of their nasal passages into the sink and not rinsing it down.

    I still enjoy the coffee. If you go to the US, you know it's hard to find a decent cup of strong coffee, let alone a good one. Timmies is consistent.
