TORONTO, Nov. 1, 2012 /CNW/ - If you love Tim Hortons, you'll love TASSIMO. TASSIMO and Tim Hortons have joined forces to launch Tim Hortons TASSIMO T DISCs. Just in time for the holiday season, Tim Hortons fans can have the coffee they love at the touch of a button, in the comfort of their home.
Tim Hortons TASSIMO T DISCs are now available at nearly 3,000 Tim Hortons restaurants, at tassimo.ca and at timhortons.com.
