Iím not sure if they have a location in Alberta or not but as far as I know theyíre a BC company.

RP I understand not wanting to spend much effort but Iíve been doing it so long now itís routine and I have it simple. Put the kettle on, grind some beans put in press, pour in water. The coffee black is far beyond anything a drip or machine can give. A 1 month playing jaunt right through Europe in 2012 ruined me for coffee (and many foods too). One thing that didnít make it across the pond is the quality of almost all foods.

Unless youíre from Scotland (Iím kidding sorta)

ah, yes I have similar friends and yeah. The ultimate in some dark flavourful epic cups.

I never ever understood the 'timmies' craze, members of my family are nuts for it, for me its if that's all that's available, I need to stave off the caffeine headache somehow

How privileged am I to have this luxury.

Steve it might be me but I am finding Timmies coffee seems to have changed some ....wondering if the Brazilian owners have been tinkering with the roast and blend to save a few pennies. I will say this, Timís decaf is about as good as it gets in my opinion.

Hmmm...??? I could never understand why someone who likes coffee would drink the decaf stuff.

Why do not just drink a coffee-flavoured drink Instead???

Iím with you on the decaf. I actually have a button somewhere that says Ďdeath before decafí

Vege stuff. It has to be damn good. Otherwise Iíll have a salad but I have had some surprisingly good concoctions. The fresh restaraunts here besides being annoying hipster cram you into insultingly tiny close quarters if you can withstand that they make an incredible veg burger. And sweet potato fries. Anyone do mayo with fries? I thought it was a terrible idea until I tried it. Fantastic. Not healthy, but who cares
