Canada's #1 Favorite Coffee: Tim Horton's - BGC

Almost a third of the world’s population drinks coffee making it the one of the most popular drinks in the world.   Coffee originated in the east African highlands in the 6th century. It was then brought to Arabia where people used it as food and medicine. During the 11th century the first coffee drinks came up. In the 16th and 17th centuries coffee became widely popular in Europe when the Turks brought it to Central Europe. In the 17th and 18th century coffee reached the North and South Americas during the time of European expeditions and conquests.

Coffee houses soon became popular all over the world. In the 1900s chains of coffee shops developed in Europe and America. One of the well-known coffee shop these days, is Tim Hortons which was founded in 1964, by Canada’s hockey legend Tim Horton and ever since then they have been serving Canadians fresh coffee and baked goods for over 50 years. 10 years later, Tim Horton passes away and Ron Joyce establishes the Tim Horton Children's Foundation (THCF) to honor Tim's love of children and desire to help the less fortunate.

In 2000, the millennial year sees another milestone as the 2000th restaurant opens in downtown Toronto. Fast forward to 2017, after more than 50 years of serving and bringing smiles to guests in the Great White North, the iconic Canadian Tim Hortons made its way to the Philippines. Filipinos can now enjoy Tim Hortons premium coffee, freshly baked goods, delicious sandwiches & wraps, and other food products.

Where I used to work, Tim Hortons (TH) is one the nearest decent coffee shops, well besides the one on the ground floor of the building. So, for a change we visit TH occasionally especially the one in Net Quad. We like it there because they have strong wi-fi and power outlets. Perfect for when we wanted to chill, drink coffee and browse unendingly on our phones.

Teajito – black tea-based drink infused with fruits and mints in different flavors such as Peach Garden, Passion fruit, and Green Apple. This was peach teajito.

Strawberry Banana Fruit Smoothie – a refreshing cold beverage blend of fruity strawberry and banana puree and added milk for the creamy aftertaste.

Cafe Mocha – an espresso-based drink with chocolate and warm milk for the right blend of creaminess and sweetness

Double Double – Canadian favorite of two shots of cream and two shots of sugar with the original brewed coffee giving the right creaminess and sweetness to your coffee

Chocolate Eclair – a soft yeast éclair donut filled with creamy whipped topping finished with a chocolate fondant on top

Boston Cream – soft, yeast fill donut dipped in chocolate fondant with a rich Venetian cream filling

Tim Horton's Milk Tea – uses black tea, vanilla-sweetened milk, sugar, and coffee jelly. You can also get your milk tea with an additional shot of caramel or hazelnut syrup. This was plain milk tea without additional shot.

I’ve been hearing a lot of unfavorable feedback with Tim Hortons’ coffee and other offerings, but to be honest, I actually like it. I mean they are not that bad, pretty much decent coffee that you would expect from large international coffee chains. I even like their milk tea as the coffee jelly is a nice alternative to pearls and really works well with the MT. I don’t know, but that one really got a bad rap from other people. The one thing that I think they need improvement on is with their food items. I don’t know, for the price points of their food, it should be yummier and tastier. Other than that, all else is well.
