Tried this on Saturday, it's actually not bad. The cream vs coffee ratio is off though, too much of the vanilla sweet cream and it overpowered the coffee (though considering its Timmie's coffee, might not be a bad thing? lol). And with Timmie's usual inconsistency depending on who makes the drink, the flavour is gonna be all over the place.

The funny thing, is that "cold brew" is just coffee that steeps for 12-24 hours, like a tea, but in room temp water. No special gizmos required. And yet Tim's is charging extra like their iced coffee.

Why is cold more costly to make than hot ?!?

BTW, in the U.S., their cold brew is available with Irish Cream flavoring. Yum.
Buying things you don't need is what RFD is all about.

Tims cold brew steeping process is 16-hour with cold water

COLD BREW FAQ

Q: WHAT DOES COLD BREW TASTE LIKE?

A: Cold Brew has a uniquely smooth flavour that we perfected by developing a 16-hour steeping process with cold water. Guests can also order a Vanilla Cream Cold Brew, made with 100 per cent Canadian dairy, which has a sweet and creamy flavour.

Uh, because it takes more time?? They make less per hour so there's less of it. Obviously you don't know how businesses work.

Coffee needs to be hot, not cold that’s disgusting.

Ummm, if you're talking about a hot coffee left cold, then yeah disgusting.

Cold brew coffee is an entirely different thing. Brewing coffee grinds slowly in cold water helps retain the natural flavour of the coffee, whereas a simple brew with hot water makes the coffee more acidic and bitter.

The regular one without the vanilla sweet cream is literally black coffee, so not much calories to speak of. But once you go for the cream version, that skyrockets way up loll

I mean... you gotta hide the coffee somehow. Same reason why they're known for a double double since their black is undrinkable.

Not the same thing. Iced coffee is usually hot coffee that's been chilled.
The flavor is different since you're brewing with hot water, hence the name cold brew.
brew your own
While I typically belong in the "make it yourself" camp, there's a convenience factor.

Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

I make my own cold brew coffee and tea at home. They are less acidic and less bitter, in my opinion. Better for my empty stomach, especially in the morning.

I never understood why they have to fill the cup with so much ice...I prefer Starbucks...no ice

But again..it's easier to brew myself

This is why some fast food joints give you attitude when you ask for pop no ice.

You know that reaction when a non drinker drinks a drink from someone that's an alcoholic and basically coughs and says smooth in a weird voice?
That was my reaction.
This was the exact opposite of smooth. I actually recoiled when I tried my first sip. It was bitter covered in cream with a burnt aftertaste.

For $4 (for a large) I'd rather get 2x Ice hot brew coffee from McDonalds. Theirs isn't nearly as throat punchingly bitter.

Velvety my ass. This is as smooth as sandpaper and broken glass.
