Tim Hortons Cup Hack





Introduction: Tim Hortons Cup Hack

Are you like most of us in Canada and have have a border-line addiction to Tim Hortons coffee and needing it on the daily? If you say "Yes" then you know how annoying it is opening the lids tab while driving having it sloshing around every turn, dip and bump making little coffee puddles and messes in your vehicle. This is a simple yet highly effective technique that minimizes spillage of that "oh so valuable" hot caffeinated beverage that is essential for you to have any daily productivity what so ever. If you want in on the "know" than I suggest you follow along this ridiculously easy life-hack.

Step 1: Buy Your Coffee $

Go to that classy establishment nearest to you and get that "double double" you know that wants you, as much as you want it.

Step 2: Don't Open It Like This

Don't be a sheep just following the herd and listening to "the man" about how to open your delicious coffee. Think out side the box! While using no extra materials turn your spilly coffee into a modern drip-less, splash-less cup that is ever so clever it's "awe inspiring". Sometimes you have to go "against the grain" and "draw out-side of life's lines" to show your individualism and creativity in a practical way. People will be asking them selves "who is this guy/gal that is breaking all the rules?" You will have a smarter impression upon meeting new people and will likely get you that new job you always wanted from all that extra productivity you have from that un-spilled life nectar.

Step 3: Open It Like This*

Hold on to your seats, not only are we not going to open and fold up top like "they" think we should, were actually going to fold the tab inside the cup; creating a "spill-gate" as we at the lab have coined. The best part is that it will not hinder the "drink-ability" of your coffee at all! Feel free to hit some sweet jumps in your caravan feeling safe that "Tim's" will still be there waiting for you in its entirety. Enjoy!

    make your own coffee using a French press, None of those business can even come close to the French press.

    I tried a new lid called FoamAroma. It was fantastic. Really simple design, sealed really tightly around the cup, the coffee tastes better because of the aroma hole and it actually spills a lot less than most other lids!

    I love Tim Hortons' coffee! And this hack is the greatest solution to my usual sloppy cup! Just one question; see I am a yank and I can't figure out what a 'double double' is?

    It's a 2 cream 2 sugar lol

    Just to add to this answer:
    Regular is single cream, single sugar, but I would say that in reality what they call single is really x2 plus they use 18% cream and tablespoons of sugar...

    I was handling my Timmy's addiction until I saw that big old double double. *sigh* Off to Timmy's I go to try this hack. Thanks for the tip!

    Revolutionary this could save untold pots of coffee if the masses could change their old world ideas. Thank you for sharing.

    My wife hit some sweet jumps in the Caravan once (took a short cut to the 7/11 with kids, made them swear never to tell). I always wondered what made a power steering hose blow on a 7 month old vehicle..... 3 years later she told me.

    Power steering fluid in drive way: Check.
    Timmys coffee sloshed in cup holder: Check.

    ...that rat fink folded it up, didnt she?

    I've been doing this for a while, after I read an instructable named "how to drink coffee like a trucker". It is great!

    My dad taught me this about 10 years ago. Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea.

    Ah, I lived in Canada for two years. I miss Timmy Ho's! I'll have the double double and some donut holes please.

    I live in Buffalo New York with a ton of Timmie Hoes crack heads for friends and family. they will love this

    Loved this idea when I first heard it thanks for sharing the wealth...

    I guess we are many years ahead of Canada in cup technology. Coattails anyone?

    Every once in a while, on slow news days, you see the human interest stories about how terrible it is to always be spilling your coffee due to "poor lid design"... but they always avoid giving specific answers. I learned this one from a trucker... but it's one of those fixes that is practically staring you in the face. Once you make the shift, you never go back!!

    I learned it from a cop surprise surprise
