Does anyone know what Tim Horton uses to make their decaf? I don't work anymore, so I am out of touch with the 'younger' crowd. My friends are not very impressed with the coffee I roast (taste buds gone?) and we (me and Charlotte) love Harrar Horse, and sort of whimper over the other coffees we have tried from Tom. Nothing compares to Harrar, for us. I think I roast pretty good. At least I can change the profile on Harrar and make it taste different. And I can roast it the way we love it. I have tried lots of different beans from Tom over the past two years. If we don't love it we give it away.. friends... church. People do rave about it, but only like it for free. No business out there as yet. So maybe the raving is all just being polite. However, one of my friends is partial to Kona Blend, you know, that high priced stuff that you find in bins in grocery stores. Try as I might, I could not duplicate it to please his palate with coffee from Tom. Then I asked this list for help. Sure enough, he just loves 70% Vietnamese robusta, 20% low end Colombian, and 10% Kona. Cheapest stuff I could get. Also, he does not believe that is what he is drinking. Me? I know he has stopped drinking ground up sticks and bugs that he probably got from the supermarket. So now I have another friend who I just learned orders in tim horton decaf. (There is no Tim Horton's in LHC) Has it mailed to her. Big bucks there. So, I just ordered about every decaf Tom has to try and duplicate it. Today I am thinking that probably was not too bright. I almost bet that TH does not use the same quality beans Tom sells, so am I on a fools errand? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to duplicate what TH sells for decaf? All suggestions greatly appreciated, PeterZ You know, it was 28F this morning, here in LHC.

Who is Tim Horton? Related to Reverend Horton Heat?
Maybe, bud did he really hear a who?http://www.funtocollect.com/drseushorhea.htmlOn 12/16/05 2:40 PM, "tom ulmer" wrote: <Snip>
Tim Horton was a hockey player that played for Toronto. He has been dead for awhile now. I don't know if he started the doughnut shop after he retired or if someone else used his name. They are big in Canada, and have been in the US for a few years. I believe they are affiliated with Wendy's Hamburgers in some way in the US locations. Mike
Thanks Mike, I was going to say that it is a chain of coffee shops, giving good competition to *$, but lots of sweet latte stuff available at the counter iirc. I do like their coffee mugs though, nice, ceramic, if you do not do take out. PeterZ Had a Tim Horton caramel vanilla something while visiting Canada, never in LHC. Mike Chester wrote: <Snip>
