Coffee Brouhaha

This is a simple post today. It’s my way of saying thank you for all the lovely cups of coffee I’ve enjoyed over the years


Williams Coffee Pub

Williams storm coming

My wife, Susan, will tell you that the easiest way to get me to shop at the local charity store “Stuff” (formerly Goodwill) is to let me go to Williams on Bryne Drive in Barrie, first. Once I’ve had that large cup of brewed refreshment, I’m mellow.


Tim Hortons


If we have to travel any distance in the car, and especially if we’re going to be visiting friends or family, the most important stop along the way is at the Tim’s Drive-Thru.

Two extra larges and a box of Timbits later, we’re ready for wherever our journey will take us. My daughter, Rosanna, is especially fond of this franchise group because they can be found everywhere, and I do mean everywhere.


Costa Coffee


But what happens when we’re traveling outside of Canada? From my experience of living in the UK for 22 years, I know that coffee brewing doesn’t always taste the same when it’s done somewhere else. Perhaps there’s something in the water. Who knows?

But my Sunday morning routine, when I was infrequently living on my own in Torquay, Devon, was to get The Sunday Times and settle in for a couple of hours at the local Costa Coffee shop.

The picture above was taken at the Costa bar in Dublin, Ireland, last year. It had been a chilly morning, and we were so grateful for a large cuppa to wrap our hands around.

And the coffee warmed our hearts.
