Timothy's World Coffee Opens Up

Timothy's World Coffee Chestnut Hill location is the first in America, with more than 100 locations around the world.


Are you tired of Dunkin' Donuts or Starbucks and looking for a different cup of joe? Then try out .

Timothy's World Coffee opened its first American location last month at 667 VFW Parkway. The Toronto-based company has more than 100 locations worldwide. 

You'll notice the business shares an inside door with Bruegger's because Timothy's was acquired by Bruegger’s Enterprises in 2009 in an effort to expand the brand’s presence in North America.  

The company prides itself on purchasing only the top 1-5% of the world’s finest Arabica beans and offering more than 40 types of coffee blends and beans to enjo. 

Here are some facts about Timothy's:

  • Timothy's offers organic coffee, grown and processed without chemicals.
  • Timothy's espresso beans are 100 percent Rainforest Alliance Certified.
  • Timothy's offers a selection of Fair Trade Certified coffee.
  • Packaged in signature green bags, proceeds from Timothy's exclusive Partnership Coffees support a number of educational and environmental programs.
  • In 2007, Timothy's introduced the first-ever certified Women in Coffee blend, supporting female coffeefarmers.
  • The company was founded in 1975 by Timothy Snelgrove and his wife Theresa, who sold the brand in 1986 to Ian and Becky McKinnon who expanded, through franchising, across Canada. 
  • Through a partnership with Keurig, Timothy’s also sells the largest variety of Timothy's branded K-Cups (single unit coffee pods), for use in Keurig's line of single serve brewers.

Last month during its grand opening customers were given a free cup of coffee on the house, and asked that they donate their spare change (or more) to Mass Audubon, to help the non-profit care for its 34,000 acres of conservation land in Massachusetts.

Any coffee maker that cares about the rain forest and birds gets my patronage.

This sounds great. Any company that supports education and the enviroment, I'm for. We also need some good coffees . Bostonian need to taste the REAL flavor, aroma and distinct taste of coffee. Get rid if D&D's awful ,and poor excuse for coffee.

I visited them a few times, and in my opinion they make the best espresso in town with possible exception of North End. Much better than Starbucks - they for some reason think that burnt coffee is best for espresso.

Sounds great, except those K-cups ad to the plastic pollution of this world. Doesn't seem consistent with their other attempts at being socially and environmentally oriented.
