No, no - I love those deep-fried rings of dough. And Tim bits too... Tim Horton's is pratically a religion here. I just hate their coffee. Must be the Brit in me. They can't make a cup of tea worth a damn either...Dan Tasman wrote:

Watch what you say there, buddy. I was up until almost 1a.m. watching hockey last night...Some Canadian you are. Excuse me, while this 'Merkin goes off to watch "Don Cherry's Blood on the Ice! #16
Summer between my freshman and sophomore year of college (mid 90’s) I worked in a local Jamaican family owned coffee house in atlanta. I thought the coffee was awesome. I loved the atmosphere, the prices, the coffee, ect…jordanb said:One thing though, how the **** did they get so popular? It seems to me that it completly defeats the purpose of a coffee house. Going to a coffee house to me means ordering some tea and enjoying the ambiance of a local locally operated little eatery for a while.
Hot damn! Fax me an application!Huston said:We have free coffee and espresso at work...
Try some of the nicer hotels in Arlington or DC. I recently read an artical in the paper that places here such as the Omni and Renaissance have formal afternoon teas.Trail Nazi said:I don't know why they won't make more teahouses or formal places for afternoon tea. I would go often. How yummy to go in and have some tea and scones or other snacky cakes to chow down on.

Perhaps good coffee and fast service? If the coffee is good and the service fast, I'll spend my money at that coffee shop. Nothing like the coffee shop where the staff takes an eternity to operate th espresso machine. If you sell coffee, the you oughta be able to operate the equipment in an efficient manner.jordanb said:One thing though, how the **** did they get so popular?
It's got a cone filter so water filters through and picks up more of the coffee flavors. Also, it doesn't have a burner to keep the coffee hot (no scorching), it's a carafe, and I've notcied after making coffee at 7.a.m. it's still hot when I get home at 6 p.m. It has the digital timer so you can set it up to make coffee for you and once it's done brewing it shuts off (great for those of us with half a brain functioning int he morning rush).Repo Man said:I have wondered about that Barista coffee maker...is it any good? I have been searching for the ultimate coffee maker so I can reproduce that coffe-house coffee flavor.
