Get into the Dark with Tim Hortons #TimsDark

I’m not seen very often without a coffee in hand, it’s a staple of mine which I talk about often here in this space. Yep, I do super-love my coffee – pausing for a sip right now, actually. 

When Tim Hortons introduced Dark Roast, I immediately had to try it and taste the difference it offered. I do very much like the full, robust flavour and aroma; many days it’s exactly what I need.

I’m not alone, Canadians love Tim Hortons Dark Roast coffee!

The launch of Tim Hortons Dark Roast coffee was the first time in Tim Hortons’ 50-year history that an alternate blend was made available in-restaurant in addition to Tim Hortons iconic Original premium blend. While Dark Roast didn’t replace anything, people as a general rule don’t adjust to change that well. 

It’s a – ‘don’t mess with my coffee’ sort of thing.

I get it.

Yet, we Canadians have pride and faith in our Tims, and if they carefully decide to add a blend after 50 years … well, there’s gotta be a reason.

That trust made many give it a try and … Tim Hortons Dark Roast coffee has outpaced expectations, selling 100 million cups across the country and gaining a loyal following of Dark Roast drinkers since its launch!
