Tim Hortons- Toronto, Canada
What do I love more than coffee? That would be people in my life who enable me to drink more coffee! I’m telling you this because recently my boyfriend went on a trip to Toronto, Canada and visited several of their local coffee houses so that I could broaden my coffee horizons. What a sweetheart, he even brought me back a tin of Tim Hortons coffee and a travel mug from Second Cup. He even agreed to write a review of the coffeehouses he visited while he was there, I thought that you’d like to hear his opinions since he actually visited the shops!
Hello coffee lovers and friends of Megan. I’ve been asked to write about my exploration of Canadian coffee. I know my writing can come nowhere near the cuteness levels of my girlfriend. However, if a blog post about Canadian coffee is cute then I need to reevaluate my blogging.
I was in Toronto recently and I decided to bring Megan some Tim Hortons coffee. I had to endure two stops by TSA security who were curious about the contents of the tin can in my bag.
I first heard about the joys of Tim Hortons coffee in South Korea. My bearded Canadian co-worker had an empty tin in his apartment and I marvelled at the Canadian wonder. (the tin not the beard). Three years later Megan and I finally discovered the joys of the coffee. Super strong but enjoyable. It is easy to see why it is beloved in the Great White North. I’m surprised Robin Sparkles doesn’t have a song about it.
Megan and I love the movie Scott Pilgrim and in that film Scott’s sister works in a coffee shop called Second Cup. I stopped by the local Seond cup and enjoyed a cup. I wanted to pick up some of their own brand but all they had was the pretentious stuff that was raised in Latvia then transferred to Ethiopia. So, I bought Megan another mug to add to her massive collection. One neat thing is that it looks the same as a huge mug I got from starbucks. So, now we have his and hers mugs.
The trip was great and the coffee was fantastic. Try it out sometime!
So you heard it, from the great movie reviewer Mark Hofmeyer, if you are in Canada (or NYC) go check out Tim Hortons and Second Cup for an international coffeehouse. Also, if you like Mark’s writing, check out his blog at Movies, Films and Flix!
