Happy Canada to all! And on this Canada, what most are probably going to see as a most unpatriotic post; which do you prefer, Starbucks coffee or Tim Hortons?
For me, if I have a choice, it is Starbucks over Tim Hortons every time. The coffee is always brewed perfectly and the taste is always perfect. Bold flavours that soothe the sleepy palate to awareness in every cup. Starbucks coffee is best served and consumed black, without the pollution of cream, or worse, milk, or sugar.
Tim Hortons coffee tastes so awful on its own that if I have no choice and I have to have a Timmies, I have to add double cream and double sugar. The classic Canadian double-double. That is the only way that it is consumable.
And if you add in the independent coffee seller? Yuck. Scalding hot black stuff that smells faintly like coffee. Awful. And they all think they can sell their swill at Starbucks prices.
Starbucks is the best thing to happen to coffee in a very long time.
