Topic: tim horton?? (10 msgs / 273 lines)
1) From: Peter Zulkowski
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.

LHC = Lake Havasu City, Arizona.. where the London Bridge is, and 
arguably the 3rd hottest place on earth.
Born and raised in the Boston area (Massachusetts) I used to be able to 
accept these degrees this time of year, but now they are a bit 
surprising and annoying.

Still roasting, where the temp is now up to 42F

Actually suppose to be the hottest 'pernamently' inhabitted place on the 
earth based upon avg temps, years worth of data, etc.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers 
exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will 
instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more 
bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

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.

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.

Had a Tim Horton caramel vanilla something while visiting Canada, never 
in LHC.
