The second time I tasted a Tim Hortons coffee, I was hooked.
Before arriving in Canada, I had not been a regular coffee drinker: my hot beverage of choice was rooibos tea – unsweetened and without milk. However, whenever my mom had percolated coffee on her stove, I would take a cup. But never at any other time. My coffee-drinking habit changed with a visit to Tim Hortons, a Canadian brand coffee shop. On a previous visit with my husband, I had had a regular coffee and it was a drink I did not think I would repeat.
When drinking coffee with a colleague, she suggested I try the vanilla coffee – and I loved it! I enjoyed its flavour, the touch of sweetness and the fact that the coffee taste is not too strong. When drinking this flavoured coffee, I find no need to nibble on a biscuit or eat one of the coffee shop’s timbits or doughnuts. Instead I find the drink satisfying on its own and have discovered it keeps me going for a while longer until my next meal.
Now every time I meet someone for coffee, I suggest Tim Hortons so that I can taste once more the second flavour I tried there.
