Do you agree
I can´t voice an opinion since I have never had coffee at any of those places. But I am a HUGE coffee fan. When in the States I always have like the usual Starbucks but I also love Tim Horton´s. Its always hot and rich and goes great with their donuts.
But I have to say nothing beats having a cafe con leche and medialunas or a cafecito in the afternoon at a cafe here. Especially sitting outside, perhaps on the ocean or during a fútbol match. The atmosphere is unmatched. Argentines take coffee seriously. Their cafes are similar to what you may find in Europe. Here coffee is not just a beverage, it is an art.
Surely Tim's is the best. It is Canadian, eh!
I've not had coffee at any of those places except 7-11. I really need to get out more...LOL
I like Dunkin Donuts coffee. It's the best!
I like home-brewed Folger's served black. The starbucks and tim horton's and others are more like sweet sissy drinks, their real coffee tastes like canned coffee brewed at home that is expensive. I guess sweet coffee is an acquired taste.
Believe it or not, McDonalds new coffees are pretty good. Dunkin ain't bad either.
In my shame, I will admit I usually end up drinking instant Taster' s Choice. :tonofbricks:
The MIL brought me a whole can of Hortons for Christmas. I was fixing to run her out of the house when she says, "Oh, I left something in the car, eh."
I replied, "Too bad it wasn't you, eh."
"It's an old friend of yours," she retorts.
Sure enough... 3 pound can of Tim Hortons coffee...
I let her stay. :thumbsup:
I was even hand-served a free cup of Tim's coffee one day. A Baptist Church I was helping decided to have a meeting at McDonald's. So, early I went to McDonald's and ordered a coffee. I was soon advised that the meeting was moved to Tim Horton's across the roadway. Not wanting to waste anything, I carried the McDonald's cup with me. As soon as I walked in the door at Tim's, a young lady came over and took my McDonald's cup and asked how I took my coffee. She brought me a fresh cup of Tim's.........free!:thumbsup:
Now that is customer service:thumbs:
My friends 3 years old likes to go to "Dirty Queen" (Dairy Queen), the local queen has good coffee too. :laugh: :laugh:
Good to see you back Jim. And yes it is canadian and one of the first states to get a Tim Horton´s in the US was my home state of Michigan.
Man do I miss that brew. Nothing like it with a good walnut crunch donut to go with it!
They are not sweet sissy drinks if you actually just order coffee! That is a whole lot cheaper too.
Overall I find coffee beans from Sumatra produces the best flavored coffee. I like my coffee to be a strong espresso. Buy the coffee whole bean and grind enough to make a cup or two when you are going to drink it.
Ditto friend. My favorite is expresso as well. Which is the only type of coffee that you will find in a cafe here.
And I totally agree about grinding your own beans.
Absolutely the best brew you will ever taste
Cafe Du Monde, New Orleans, LA
This comes from a non bias Cajun
A few years ago for Christtmas the kids bought me a cheap little grinder and what is most available here locally, Starbucks beans. Love the "breakfast blend". And at times an add a few hazelnut beans...... Would love to try some of the others but am very content with what I have. Grinding really makes a difference!
Yes, yes. Here they can spend a couple hours, sitting and talking over a cup of coffee.
I've never had coffee in the States. The only thing I've ever tried is a cup of Turkish coffee----and not because I really wanted it, but because it was the polite thing to do. I quickly learned not to drink the whole cup.
I have never questioned the salvation of a poster...
I like strong black coffee, so the best is what I have at home and there are still a few truckstops that have a good cup of coffee.
