Hi, I am currently living in Canada (Toronto). I noticed that people say "double double" to mean " 2 cream and 2 sugar" when ordering coffee at a drive through (namely at the coffee/donut shop called Tim Hortons). Some of my Canadian friends told me that people started to use the phrase "double double" after Tim Hortons came, or the phrase became very popular after Tim Hortons. From my observation too, I hear people say "double double" mostly at Tim Hortons and not at other places (I occasionally hear it at other fast food restaurants where you specify how much sugar/milk/cream you want at the counter). But, is it true? (Is it Canadian phrase at Tim Hortons?) Or did my friends make it up? Actually I once saw a scene from American TV drama where police detectives order coffee at a drive through (not Tim Hortons ) and one of them said "double double". So, do you (I mean native speakers not from Canada), use the phrase "double double"? As in "A large coffee, double double please? ". And my Canadian friends, I know you become very patriotic when it comes to anything about Tim Hortons, but please tell me the truth!! By the way, For those who are not from Canada or never visited Canada (Or northern part of US), Tim Hortons is a very very popular place to go to get coffee in Canada and some (north) part of US.
