    If it’s a buck cheaper than Starbucks, then a Timmie’s latte is definitely worth at least a try!

    You know it’s probably going to be a pre-mixed drink, much like their French Vanillas and the once English Toffees.

    If you’re going to go for cheap lattes, you might as well hit up McDonald’s where their coffee at least tastes good.

      RE: the new lattes being pre-mixed:

      From the article:

      “This time, it’s the real deal (being run through an automatic machine as is the case at Starbucks). They’re also using real steamed/frothed milk but will not offer the limitless amount of possible drink variables based on temperature, foam, lactose content or decaffeination.”

      …so it’s the ‘same’ as what you would get at Starbucks.

    Haven’t had one yet but the plan is to try Tim’s this week when I would normally get my ‘Friday latte.’ I’ll report back with my findings : )

    Toronto Life had Stuart Ross of Bulldog Coffee review Tim Horton’s new espresso drinks and here’s what he thought:

    Espresso:

    “First off, it doesn’t look very appealing, and it smells like aluminum.”

    And the taste?

    “It’s like if I served you a piece of chicken and it came to you burnt. Like, ‘what are you doing?’ It’s pretty bad. If you add a lot of sugar, maybe, you know, you’d get the caffeine kick at least.”

    Capuccino:

    “I’m getting a smell… I don’t know what it is. You’re really going to make me try this?”

    Yes, we are.

    “There’s no nice coffee taste at all. It’s almost like a double double with foam on it.”

    Latté:

    “I don’t know what the difference is [between the latte and cappuccino]….Oh wait. There’s a colour difference under the foam. The cappuccino is a little darker and the latte is a little lighter. It’s kind of sweet. This tastes like hot chocolate. Taste it! It’s a hot chocolate. It doesn’t taste like coffee. It’s misleading. And there’s such tinny taste.”
