Well we've had celebrations on both sides of the boarder, Independence Day and Canada Day. :usa:canada

Here is a catchy tune by Dave and Chris Hadfield called "In Canada" that they did for this year's Canada Day. (Chris was commander on the ISS for five months last year.)

This is how the addiction starts, my daughter was distracted talking with a friend while grampa was getting the granddaughter hooked on a double double.

No kidding. I used to get the chili and a x-large Cafe Mocha (coffee/hot chocolate basically) at 7am in Windsor to eat as I cruised up the 401 to Toronto when I was launching the Ford Windstar back around 97. Been hooked ever since.

Ok I'll have to be the thorn in the side of this thread. I love Tim for his hockey but not for his coffee. I was born and raised a Duncan Donuts boy. I was so happy when they opened one here in Morgantown last year. I'll drive 10 miles to get Duncan's over the 3 miles to get Tim's. There is something about Tim's coffee that gives me heartburn.

Some of y'all must not be able to get Community Coffee where you live. No need to go to a coffee house, and much better and cheaper!

Community Coffee is pretty good. It's nowhere near as bitter as Fivebucks Coffee.

Never had Fivebucks Coffee, I guess.

Used to be, you could only get Community Coffee in or near New Orleans. Had a neighbor with a sister that lived near enough, and I'd send her money, and she's send me CC. Then I found it on Amazon!!! Now it is in most of the grocery stores. Sure makes life easier!

Duh!! :slap-yourself-emoti Serious Blonde moment!!!

Never been a huge fan of theirs. However, I believe they also make Seattle's Best, and it is an OK coffee.

Starbucks is bitter - can't stand it. For it to be as overpriced as it is just adds insult to injury. T.H. is around $2

Starbucks is okay in small doses. You can be in and out with a large coffee for <$2.00 unless you start adding all the "stuff". Can't stand Dunkin coffee. Tried it a few times, just not for me.

Given the choice, I'll make coffee with chickory at home. That's good stuff.

Dunkin taste a bit watered down, no matter how you make it.

The old CC, The New Orleans Blend, was a better blend of coffee and chickory. They changed it some a couple of years ago. But it is still one of the better coffees around.

Dunkin is a last resort coffee for me.
Newman's Special Blend Extra Bold via a Keurig for me.

To me Tim's is "just coffee" but I enjoy it once in a while. But around here they line up 20 cars deep at the drive through to get their Tim's. I like coffee hot, dark, and strong, espresso straight up once in a while. And not the de-coffee'ed stuff either, give me all the caffeine. It has to make me vibrate to be a good cup. :morning2: :gaah:

I have a friend that is the exact opposite and likes his coffee so weak you can actually see through it, :unknown: and unfortunately for him I forget sometimes when I make a pot to share and he has to cut it 50%.
