Guests joined the conversation and excitement online using the hashtag #DivewithTimHortons on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“The launch of Dark Roast is historic for Tim Hortons and it couldn’t have come at a better time than during our 50th anniversary year and the 20th anniversary of Dubai Shopping Festival,” said David Roy, Managing Director, Tim Hortons International. “At Tim Hortons, we pride ourselves on serving best-in-class coffee and responding to the evolving tastes of our guests, and our new Dark Roast blend further reaffirms that commitment.

Tim Hortons Dark Roast is a brand new premium blend made from 100 per cent Arabica beans, sourced from the world’s most renowned coffee regions. The new blend offers hints of citrus, cocoa and earthy tones with a rounded body. It is carefully roasted to bring out the full, rich flavour and aroma of a dark roast coffee, while ensuring a perfectly smooth finish.
The new Dark Roast coffee is now available at Tim Hortons across Dubai, and soon at all other Emirates.
