After watching a couple of episodes of The Bachelor, I’m pretty sure this is what it sounds like: Two young, fit men have been drinking coffee and chatting in the woods in Florida for the past week.
Then they start to talk about a forest.
“It sounds like the Wild West, isn’t it?” one of the guys says.
The other says: “You know what?
This is what you call a forest.”
The two of them have been talking about woods since before the show even started airing.
So, naturally, they’ve decided to create a forest themed drink to go along with their first date.
The concept was born from a friendship between one of them, Tim Hortons co-founder Tim Horton, and the late, great John Bonner, who founded the company in Toronto.
The idea was that one day they were going to have coffee with a bunch of friends in the park.
They would get a beer, and then a little later they would get their date.
After they’d done their coffee, they would talk about the wild places in the forest.
Then, as they were talking about it, the two of you would start to laugh.
So they had a drink together, and they both started to get giggly, and that’s how it started.
The two have been doing this for about a year now, and their idea is to create coffee infused with the spirit of the forest, with the woods themselves in mind.
And what they’ve found so far is really good.
After a week of experimenting, Tim and John decided to go with a combination of vanilla, coffee and coconut, which they’ve named The Forest Woody.
“Coffee is such a great, delicious, savory coffee,” says Tim.
“We’ve been using coconut for a couple years now.
We wanted to use coffee, the same way we use chocolate, coffee beans, espresso and chocolate, just to really take it up a notch.”
The Forest Woods is available for purchase in the Tim Hortoning stores and online through the company’s website.
