I roast my own coffee, because I excel at life. If there was a chance of winning hash maybe I'd consider a temporary switch to Tim Horton's, but even then I doubt it.

Tim's has pretty decent sandwiches, but aside from that, I've never really understood the mass appeal and popularity of that joint.

Their coffee flavoured ass water tastes a bit like coffee. That's what I order.

My first roll up the rim was a win. (free coffee/latte) - if you want to refer to it as a win. More like a loss - for my digestive system. For some reason, the odd time, tim hortons coffee is a very effective laxative for myself. I prefer McDonalds coffee or Robins Doughnuts coffee. Not a fan of darker roasts such as starbucks.

I am fortunate enough to have the 2nd place winner for Canadian baristas 1 block from my work and about 3 other killer java/espresso shops nearby. I have no problem spending $2-2.50 for a good cup. If I want mediocre coffee, it is free at work.

I'm already a winner because I don't buy coffee at Tim Horton's. This is just a marketing strategy to get more people to buy thier coffee.

McDonald's coffee is much better than Tim Horton's, and for the next week all McCafe beverages are a $1 off!

Mac's stores in Thunder Bay are selling all of their coffee for $1, so the local McDonald's are doing the same thing. Any size coffee is $1. Over the Manufactured-Holiday-to-Celebrate-Christian-Values-While-Appeasing-Unions, Burger King celebrate the anniversary since their new store opened by having Whoppers on for $1.79, so just days before it began, McDonald's offered the same price for Big Macs.

So, I expect that in about two weeks time, we'll see Roll up the Rim to Lose at McDonald's as well. Someday they'll come up with something original, but this is not that day.

You know what? FUCK McDick's. And FUCK Puke Horton's. And FUCK the Rogers building in DT Montreal. The ugliest piece of shite building I've ever seen in my (albeit short) life.

Timmies pre bakes their donuts in a factory - freezes them and then ships them out to be reheated.

I just can't understand the devotion they inspire.

At this should point their stores should just contain a coffee machine and vending machine like you find in some dark corner of an office building. They would save paying the staff and the product would be no worse - come to think of it those donuts you get from those machines are probably fresher than the one's at Tims.
