Tim Hortons is testing new premium, made-to-order lattes and espressos in Canada

Remember the Tim Hortons showcased what its brand and products could look like in a few years? No? Let me refresh you.

Timmies crafted a location with mix drinks, which are “based on Iced Tea or what we call mocktales, smoothies that are made to order.” Tim Hortons also showed off “Cold Brew Coffee,” “Coffee Porter” and “StrawBerry Lager” beers. As for baked goods, Tim Hortons dreamed up various donuts, cookies, muffins, bagels or sandwiches, like the Pucker up Raspberry Cookie, Death By Chocolate Cookie, Chocolate Banana Timbits, Raspberry White Chocolate Timbits, Night at the Movies Cupcake, the Poutine Pretzel bagel, and a number of other items including omelettes, breakfast crepes, sugar-free donuts, and “filled cookies.”

However, a new day is coming soon to Tim Hortons as the company is currently testing a way to replace its current powdered espresso-based coffees with newly minted “premium-espresso coffees.” The company is currently testing this in stores in Vancouver and London, Ontario and cost about $12,000 per machine. The plan is to launch the coffees countrywide next year, “possibly in the spring,” says a report in the Globe and Mail.

There is no indication as to the prices Tim Hortons will charging for the craft beverages but it will be made with “Arabica espresso beans and freshly steamed Canadian milk in the lattes.”

I'm obsessed with Tim Hortons. It runs through my veins and I've probably spent enough money downing Steeped Tea's that I could have purchased my own franchise.
