For the Timmie's double-double lovers out there, how can I replicate it at home???

I know people hate on Tim Hortons but for the double-double lovers out there, I'm trying to get the best configuration and willing to spend the money if I could make it at home. I basically want the closest taste possible.

A lot of people are saying to buy their Tim Hortons coffee cans and use any coffee maker and as long as you add 18% creme, it'll taste the same. For me, I don't find the taste too similar and I'm not sure Timmies would really try their best to make their cans taste the same at the stores.

So how can I do it? What's the best coffee maker/coffee can combination I could buy?

I will suggest, the patented Tim Horton's coffee maker made by Bunn, Tim Horton's coffee, 18% cream, sugar. They claim their coffee maker is designed to produce the "true Tim Horton's flavour". I have one, makes great coffee. I also use their tassimo cups.

A bunch of us pitched in and got a Bunn coffee maker for work. With that coffee maker, I can replicate the flavour. I can't at home with a regular coffee maker.

Tim Hortons coffee cans and use any coffee maker and as long as you add 18% creme. Filtered Water is the missing link .At Tim's the water supply's to the makers have an inline filter, consistent results.

Timmies coffee is disgusting. If your making coffee at home why not get quality ground?

I have the Tassimo Tim Hortons, both regular and decaf, and both taste just like it does at the Tim Hortons. So I cut a new T-disc open to see how coffee was in it. About 2 tablespoons of coffee in the Tims t-disc, and makes a 7 ounce cup as says on the box. I do the add more water to get a 8 ounce cup and still tastes just a good.

So you need at least 2 tablespoons of Tim Hortons coffee for every cup of water. And make sure your water is hot enough. (with the cream and sugar)

You went to the wrong location. TH has some great locations with great coffee and some locations that honestly make you wonder how they get away with using the TH name at all...
That's why I had to switch to McDonald's coffee. I may prefer TH, but at least the taste is consistent from location to location with no disappointment at McDonald's.

All of them.
Can confirm. I usually drink my coffee black but at Timmies, it has to be double double otherwise I can't drink it.
