Tim Hortons to launch lattes
November 2, 2011, Oakville, ON – Tim Hortons will add lattes, mocha lattes and cappuccinos made with premium espresso at more than 2,500 locations across Canada.
The new drinks, made from roasted and blended Arabica beans, will start at two dollars.
"We carefully explored lattes for some time," said Paul House, executive chairman, president and CEO, Tim Hortons. "The unique blends we've developed deliver a rich, creamy drink, consistently and fast. With nearly half a century of coffee experience, we've learned how to produce premium coffee, consistently, at value prices."
The new lattes are a natural extension to the popular Tim's Café Favourites family of specialty coffees, which includes French Vanilla Cappuccino and Café Mocha.
"We're also helping introduce high-quality lattes at a value price to people outside larger cities," said House. "A good latte isn't easily available in many communities. Now, anyone can enjoy a delicious latte in one of our thousands of locations, or grab one in a drive through window, any time of day."
Lattes and other espresso-based beverages will be available in Ontario starting Nov. 14, and mid-December in the rest of Canada and United States.
