Introduction


Welcome to my wikipage about Coffee. I love coffee. Coffee is brewed from roasted coffee beans. Coffee contains a lot of natural caffeine and creates many addicted people. Coffee was first discovered in the Ethiopian highlands and it gradually spread around the world. Coffee is the top export of 12 countries and is the main product of many food stores today. It is sold through popular chains such as Tim Hortons, Starbucks, Second Cup, and Timothy's.

My Tastes

I am very picky about my coffee. At home, I drink Sobey's Brand Medium Brew Coffee. It is a very inexpensive coffee but I find it tastes better than most other brands. Coffee is all about finding the right taste. I have 1 large cup to start my days and another cup before lunch if I am running out of steam.

Tim Hortons

This place is the hub of Canadian coffee drinking. I think that everyday, half of Canada lines up for a cup. Tim Horton's coffee is not actually that good. It is a cheap fix with sugar and cream. I rate it a 5/10 as a very acceptable thing to drink.
Tim Horton's

Starbucks

This place is only for the elite of coffee drinkers. The average price is a coffee here is more than three times that of a Tim Horton's coffee. You might ask: why pay more? The answer: it's simple. A large cup of Tim Horton's coffee hardly gives me a caffeine high. A small cup of Starbucks House-blend makes me bounce out of control. The coffee is strong, rich, pure (probably has drugs in it) and requires careful consumption. Starbucks has weird ways to classify the sizes of drinks, not the normal small, medium, large. They use tall, grande and venti, in order of size, meaning tall would be the small and venti would be the large. See picture below:

Starbucks

Second Cup

This place is very far down my list of favorites. I find the coffee very bitter. Bitter to the point that milk and sugar do not hide how bitter this coffee really is. I avoid Second Cup.

Timothy's Coffee

There are several of these in downtown Ottawa. Its a shame they are not spread to the suburbs as well. The coffee is very rich, very tasty, very good. It has my respect. It is a good alternative to Starbucks when you want to pay a bit less and still get the quality.
