Best Ground Coffee in Canada for a Single Serve Coffee Maker

Coffee gives energy. It gives excitement. Coffee gives our mornings a rhythm. Ever since we discovered coffee, humans have been indulging ever since.

These days, we’re living a lot differently than we did centuries ago. A lot live in very tight quarters, along the lines of small condos or apartments. There’s only so much space on the kitchen countertop.

A single-serve coffee maker is thin, efficient, and gets you your morning cup in a very hands-off way.

The LIVINGbasics coffee maker allows one to use ground coffee as well as K-cups. If you are looking for a new ground coffee to try or are interested in ground coffee over K-cups, here are the best ground coffee in Canada.

Tim Hortons

What would a Canadian list of ground coffees be without Tim Hortons somewhere on the list – a great choice. Tim Hortons uses premium Arabica beans, delivering a rich and mellow flavor. Identical to what you receive in-store, it’s like having your own Tim Hortons in your own kitchen.


Folgers is Canada’s best-selling ground coffee. It’s inexpensive, dark, classic, and won’t leave grounds behind to coat your throat after a mug. It’s also very affordable and available at any grocery store or online.

Where Maxwell House differs from other coffees is through the combination of Arabica and robusta beans. It’s essentially a mix of brewed and instant coffee, very tasty.
