Red cups with the funny rim back at Timmie's

So far 0 for 2, I grabbed a cup this morning on the drive in to a call; then returning I brought coffee home.

Probably will be 0 for 10 in no time, seeing how last year the customers had spoken and redeemed too high of a percentage of wins, putting Tims at a loss.

I did some end-of-summer car cleaning in October and found a bunch of them under my seat.... can you use old ones from previous years?

I predict I will be 0 for 0, but I will see the cups all over the place on the ground.

Unless they look the same, they typically have expiration dates.

Just saw they have "Free coffee for a year"', which they define as 6 $100 Tim Hortons gift cards.

Is there anyone else here besides me that isn't a fan of Tim Hortons?
If I have to get a cup to go, I much prefer McDonald's coffee.

The wife and I are 1 for 4 as of today. Won a coffee on the coffee I'm drinking now.

I usually brew my own, get McDonald's when out on the road. But often with coworkers we will meet at a local Tim's as they are more frequent.

I have always found Tim Horton's weak and yet bitter. Ironic really. It does explain the popularity of "double-double".

LOL - that's not much, but their idea of quality coffee isn't up to much either. Timmies is becoming more niggardly in the prizes they hand out.

I switched to McDonalds a few years ago... the one near my office has a "McCafe only" counter and it's way faster than dealing with the hoardes at Tim's.... Coffee's better too.

Still nothing beats Dunkin Donuts for me though...

McDonalds is hot or miss for me, the places that have the McCafe counters usually are good; but some of their drive thru's have no concept of close the lid.

Also occasionally I'll get a burnt taste.

I can't stand either of those coffees. We have an espresso machine at home, so I will just drink that.

On the rare occasion that I do drink coffee outside, there are two small places next to my workplace, one is a pastry/dessert shop, the other is a chocolate artisan shop where they make their own chocolate. The coffee at those places is same price as Timmie's, but the quality is a million times better as it's freshly ground and prepared on the spot.

i'm the same...McD's coffee is actually pretty decent...Tim's is gross.

Of the major chains, I prefer Timmies... Starbucks is too bitter; ditto for Timothy's.

McD's is pretty decent; and I really like Robyn's, but they aren't anywhere to be found in Southern Ontario anymore (Marathon is about the closest they come anymore...)

Have a nice Delonghi drip + expresso maker. It gets used once and a blue moon, now my French press gets a workout 4-5 times a week.

Give it to someone homeless, about the nicest thing you can do with a Tim's "donut"

Timothy's, William's, Coffee Culture all decent alternatives.
