OAKVILLE, Ont. – Tim Hortons is pouring a new cup of joe starting today as it looks to attract coffee connoisseurs from some of its competitors.

The Canadian chain says it will begin testing its first single-origin coffee in five markets across select parts of the country.

The flavour is called Three Peaks Colombian, and it’s being sourced from Cauca, Colombia.

Tim Hortons has traditionally served a coffee blend of beans from serveral sources in different countries.

Last year the company rolled out a dark roast in an effort to give customers more options.

The company says it will test the new coffee in five markets across the country over an eight-week period, covering Sudbury and North Bay, Ont; Saint John and Moncton, N.B; and Abitibi, Que.
