After half a century pouring the same old brew, Timmies is branching out with a brand-new blend. The darker, bolder roast, made with 100% Arabica beans, makes its Canadian debut on November 4 in London, Ontario—i.e. the country’s default test market. If the brew plays well there, it could be coming to Toronto as well. So far, reports are positive, if not enthusiastic. “It actually tastes like coffee,” said one reporter who tasted the blend. We suppose that’s a start. [Toronto Star]

    Is this satire? It plays out like The Onion. Coffee tastes differ depending on blend. Starbucks, McDonalds, Timmies and what-have-you usually have varying blends, which account for a variation in tastes. “It actually tastes like coffee”? It always tasted like coffee, mate. You just didn’t know what different blends of coffee tasted like.
