Why is Tim Horton's coffee so great....

and why do Canadians in every part of the country line up patiently for there cup of joe? Tim's has become a meeting place for the Nations coffee lovers..They even put one in the Canadian base in Afghanistan for the soldiers so they have a taste of home.... If you don't live in Canada, you won't be able to answer this question, because it is a Canadian thing with a few opening in the U.S.

Possibly because its the only wholy Canadian place to go get coffee and doughnuts. However, I find nothing particularly great about Timmy`s coffee. Its generally very bitter which means its quite stale and its also too strong. Bitter coffee means that the beans have gone rancid or are going rancid. I used to live a few blocks from a place that roasted their own beans daily, And it is much better than ANY coffee from a chain store.

As an employee in the US Tim Hortons, I can assure you that there is nothing put in the coffee. In fact, they're pretty cheap packets that we recieve when Truck arrives. It's kinda ridiculous too, we brew coffee only for it to stand 20 minutes before we HAVE TO throw it away. It's such a waste. What sucks is that when we throw it away, there's always a large group of people that come in and order sh!tloads of coffee.
