    Saw a news last week about Canadian soldiers missing the much sought after coffee shop in Canada, Tim Horton's Coffee (and donuts).

    Tim Hortons have decided to open an outlet at the Canadian Forces base, and Tim Hortons employees must pass a training conducted by the Canadian Forces in order to be assigned in Afghanistan. Training includes what to do in an attack and wearing gas masks.

    Some traininings better than no training.

    If they were going to make them into uber mall ninja's, they might as well give them decent pay, forget about the coffee and put them in a combat unit.

    well, if they can't fight with a firearm then might as well defend themselves with strong coffee!!!


    then they get coffee nerves...

    Ahhh.... Krispy Kreme.
    Buti na lang, Gonuts Donuts comes somewhat close
    (when still warm), or I'd be a basket case by now.

    Hold on... I'm a basket case anyway.
    But a basket case with a dozen good donuts!
    :)

    hmmm...that's a tough but subjective question. i personally don't go for any of the coffee bars whether starbukols, siokoy's beast or pigarong. i do get my fill of caffeine in my line of work but coffee bars can't seem to fill that need. i'd rather go to the nearest sidewalk "turo-turo" where the coffee has that genuine flavor(enriched with sidewalk "splatter" and lots of "evap") 24-hours pa!!!at hindi bawal ang NO SMOKING!!!!)

    Mocha Blends from Australia (SBMA) serves good coffee. I just don't know if they have outlets in other areas.

    di kasi ako nakain ng pastries eh :)di nakakabusog

    kung ako get a french press nalang , sa sosyal na groceries meron malaki at mura ( bought mine sa uniwide 99p lang )
    Then have your fave blend ground sa coffee shop at sa bahay/office nalang magtimpla ng kape. You have to store it sa freezer o sa vacuum container or aasim


    edited- sosyal dito ang uniwide nyahaha
