That chart makes me think that most Canadians have no idea what a good cup of coffee tastes like.

Makes me think it's good to have competition.

I think that test system looks like it might be more of a specific marketing tool then a decent ranking, but having said that:
I m a coffee nut. I use a grinder, make small pots, ( less then 6 cups) and use real cream, and spend in a month what some timmies addicts spend in a day.

I fill a thermos and go socialize ( timmies aren't far off, in a small town we have 5 of them round here.)

that IS whats in my thermos...

I remember when McDonalds coffee used to taste like it was made with brown crayons. When I was on the road I brewed my own, but in a pinch I'd take a McDonalds over a Timmies.

The best coffee I get is at home.

I don’t drink coffee, but wouldn’t the best coffee be brewed at home?

Oddly enough, some years ago (15? 20? 30? I can't remember), Tim Hortons started doing their own roasting/blending of their coffee. At that time, the company that used to supply them (which might have been vanHoutte, I'm not sure) started supplying McDonald's coffee.

Grind my own beans. There's lots of good smaller coffee shops around today. I'm not sure why anybody would go to a big chain.

In Edmonton right now and went to a coffee shop yesterday on the corner of 124 st and 105 ave. One of the best I've been to in awhile.

I swill Timmies dark roast black only because it's on my trail. I stopped with the cream and sugar a few years ago.

I go to a chain if I'm on the road, or for something to hold at the rink when my daughter used to play hockey. Other than that, I drink what I make at home or at work. At work is better, because it's free.

Free would be my first choice as well.

I personally pick hill-grown Chilean beans and with a granite hand grindstone reduce to semi coarse fine, then boil at precisely 103.26 degrees for 3.5 minutes. Together with my home grown sugar cane and organic hand milked dairy I reduce the heat to 70 degrees and drink from personally casted ceramic pottery.
















Or I go to Tims.

Amateur. Poseur.

Come back when you GROW your own beans.

I mine copper ore, smelt it, and hand hammer a pot to boil the water in. Then I collect the water from glacier runoff.
