Tim Hortons Coffee: Caffeine Content

tim-hortons-coffee-caffeine

Tim Hortons has started to list caffeine amounts along with their regular nutrition information.

This table shows the Canadian caffeine amounts as well as the USA caffeine amounts. However, Tim Horton’s has now expanded to Mexico, The Philippines, Spain, the UK, and China.

Caffeine in coffee can vary (due to coffee origin and blend used) and may be more or less than the amounts shown.

The caffeine database here at Caffeine Informer contains a few of Tim Hortons drinks – but this table contains all of Tim Hortons beverages.

How accurate is this?

The info is listed on their website, which features both a nutritional information calculator, nutritional report, and caffeine report.

Tim Hortons clearly states that “this information is accurate to the best of our knowledge, no warranty is expressed or implied regarding its accuracy.”

This is completely true; caffeine amounts in coffee-based drinks can vary wildly. I found a couple of discrepancies on different parts of their site.

Additionally, the caffeine content for tea depends on how long it is steeped.

Tim Hortons has recently revamped its Canadian menu which resulted in increasing the caffeine levels of many of their drinks to make them more in line with competitors. So far, the USA menu is still roughly the same but may also be in the pipeline for a revamp.

What’s up with all the caffeine in Tim Hortons Decaf?

How Does it Compare?

Decaffeinated isn’t the same thing as caffeine-free. Some of the caffeine is left behind during the decaffeination process.
