article imageMedium is the new small at some Tim Hortons locations in Ontario

Kingston - Two Tim Hortons locations in Ontario are testing out a new coffee cup size that can hold 24 ounces (710 millilitres), which has been called the Extra Large. The Canadian coffee giant will be revising the names of its cup sizes.
One day after Tim Hortons announced that it will be serving Double Double ice cream at its Cold Stone Creamery locations in Canada, the restaurant chain stated that it is experimenting with a new coffee cup size.
According to the QMI Agency, the popular coffee chain is introducing a new extra-large coffee cup size that can hold 24 ounces (710 millilitres) of coffee. The product testing will take place at two Ontario chains in Kingston and Sudbury. The new coffee will cost $1.90.
Furthermore, Tim Hortons will also be revising the names of all the original cups in order to sell the extra-large coffee. A spokesperson for Tim Hortons, Nick Javor, stated the original extra-large (20-ounce) will be known as large, the large (14-ounce) will be changed to medium and the medium (10-ounce) will become the small.
Prices for the coffees will not be raised.
In the Kingston Tim Hortons, the original eight-ounce small will be called an extra small, but at the Sudbury Tim Hortons, it will not appear on its menu at all.
The Tim Hortons spokesperson explained that the reason for this move is because its customers’ tastes are inching towards larger sizes. In the meantime, the experiment will occur over the course of a month.
We have no definitive timelines on when or if any changes will be made available elsewhere,” said Javor in an interview with Global News.
Franchises in the United States only have three coffee sizes: medium, large and extra large.
This move comes as Starbucks introduced the 31-ounce Trenta, its biggest sized drink in the popular coffee chain’s history.
