Would you drink it in pinch? Say if you're on a road trip somewhere rural and didn't have your travel setup? Or would you rather go a day(s) without coffee?

Would you date someone that loved Tim Horton's coffee, and forever refused to drink anything else?

With absolutely no access to anything of better quality? I'd absolutely skip. Coffee is not a necessity, it's just a food, like apple pie. If you know the grocery store gas station pie is going to suck, you'd probably skip it too.

I'd date a coffee-hating, meat-eating, PBR drinker if they were otherwise agreeable, fun, interesting, and so on. "Forever" though, in my experience, can be eroded to "fine I'll just try your damn coffee if you shut up about it!" ;)
Thankfully, my girlfriend quite appreciates the coffee I provide her, so I think we're good there.

Heck, I've drank Denny's so Dunkin' Donuts would be an improvement right?

I am a certified caffeine addict. I know if I go without, my head will throb and pound and while I know there is caffeine in tea, and drink that too, it's just not the same.

And why not if the person is otherwise right. You'll either convert them our you won't. But if you care for each other it's beautiful

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

First I'm married, so I have no reason to date someone.  But if I weren't married, I surely wouldn't date someone that loved Tim Horton's coffee.  Nothing to do with the coffee, its the Canadian thing that bothers me ...

OH YEAH,  THAT"S KILLER. YUP.

Len,

We have them here in the states, too.  They've got pretty decent breakfast sammies - and their broccoli soup is decent.  ;^D


Timmy Ho's - it's not just Canadian anymore...

Posted July 12, 2012 link

Oh I know.  There USED to be one in our town, it took over an old Bess Eaton doughnut.  It actually did not last long.  After it left a DD took its place.

My wife drinks instant Folgers - what can I say? And we've been married 44 years so I don't think she is going to drink my coffee eh?
