Tim Hortons Introduces New Double-Double Coffee Bar, Instant Coffees, and Bottled Coffee Drinks

By Thomas Kenzaki

There’s going to be a few new ways to get your daily Tim Hortons fix soon. The quick-service giant has just announced a bunch of new offerings including a Double-Double Coffee Bar, new ready-to-drink products, and more!

There’s no flavour more iconic at Tim Hortons than their double-double coffee. They even recently debuted double-double flavoured Timbits which were surprisingly good!

“Made with Tim Hortons coffee beans, the Double Double™ Coffee Bar is similar in size to a chocolate bar, has a smooth and silky texture with an espresso bean finish, but contains no actual chocolate.”

The new Double-Double Coffee Bar adds a convenient way to enjoy that flavour you love while on the go while also satisfying your hunger AND giving you that much needed caffeine fix.

In addition to the new coffee bar, Tim Hortons also introduced a few new updates to their lineup:

  • Instant coffee: Ready to drink anywhere, Tim Hortons new rich, smooth and delicious instant coffee is made with Tim Hortons own blend of 100% Arabica coffee beans that deliver a well-balanced, crisp flavour and smooth finish. Flavours include Medium, Decaf and Light Roast.
  • Iced Coffee: Ready-to-drink editions of Tim Hortons refreshing, premium blend iced coffees available in the Double Double™ and Regular flavours.
  • Iced Capps: An exciting relaunch of three of Canada's favourite cool and creamy ready-to-drink Iced Capp® flavours, including Original, Vanilla and Mocha.

The new Double-Double Coffee Bar doesn't arrive until fall but you'll be able to purchase the instant coffee starting in February, and the iced coffee and iced capps in March.

Let us know in the comments below what you think of the new products!

    • I'm curious in an intellectual way on how they're holding Ice Caps for service. Not that I'd ever buy one because ew, but slushy things don't tend to like refrigeration.

      It'll just be sweetened coffee flavoured milk. The same way Starbucks' bottled Frappucino drinks aren't slushy, either.

      Isn't that the ice coffee?
      Iced caps are supposed to be slushly.

      Article mentions both.

      Yes, but Frappucinos are slushy when you buy them in the cafe, too. It sounds like both Starbucks and Tim Hortons are doing the same thing: taking their slushy drinks and bottling them as iced coffee drinks.

    • They had bottled ice caps before, it's just coffee flavoured 'milk' as SMurray mentioned. The article says it's a relaunch, so did it fail the first time? Not sure how the bottled iced coffee will be different, maybe just the flavours? Maybe the ice cap drink will have a thickening agent added to make it 'creamier'. My excitement level for these new products is currently at zero.

    • I thought they were opening an actual coffee bad named double-double.

      Tims must be desperate for growth.

    • If they want growth, they must fight back against McDonald's $1 coffee

    • Unless the recipe has changed since when it first launched, the iced capp is VERY sweet and that is coming from someone with a sweet tooth.

      I'm hoping the iced coffee is good although I am not holding out much hope but I will try it.

      I wish Starbucks would bring back their bottled iced coffee.

      That's like calling a milkshake ice cream.
      That's just weird.

      EDIT: For frappucinos too.
