New Thing #348: McCaf?? Cappuccino

Scale_1

Mccafe_me

This rash of fast food espresso based drink offerings has to stop. It’s not good people. 

It’s bad enought that Tim Hortons serves lattes and cappuccinos, but this McCafe business takes it to a whole other level.

It’s not like I was expecting much, especially after the completely non-discript Tim Horton’s latte I had a while back, but this thing was just terrible. It wasn’t hot enough, the milk tasted burnt, the beans tasted burnt, and I’m pretty sure it insulted my mother when I wasn’t looking.

I forced myself to take at least four sips of it before completely declaring it crap and that was hard enough.

I’m sure that with the proliferation of coffeeshops these days that your options will never be limited to McDonalds. Please avoid at all costs.

New Thing #270: Tim Hortons Latte

Scale_2

Tim Hortons is selling espresso based drinks now. So, yeah, I couldn’t resist trying a latte today from the donut slingers down the street. I think you can safely guess how high my expectations were going into this one.

I’ll say this: Tim Hortons makes a fine cup of warm milk.

For the life of me I couldn’t taste anything resembling coffee in this mechanically made mess. At least the milk wasn’t scalded though, so I could at least treat it like a bland hot chocolate to warm me up on the walk back to the office. And were the chocolate sprinkles really neccessary Nice Lady Behind The Counter? 

So, the good news is that it didn’t make me wretch. The bad news is that it isn’t a latte by any stretch of the imagination.
