    you mean like the kind you buy at the grocery store - I like Van Houte

      When you say canned coffee do you mean grinds or ready to drink? I have seen lots of canned ready to drink coffee in asian stores, often from Japan or Hong Kong.

          Where are you located? I think there is a Japanese grocery store near downtown china town (Sanko?). Then up north at steeles and 404 there is J-Town. I go to T & T supermarket a lot and they have several brands, from different countries, Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia.......
          There are a few T & T's one in Thornhill, 2 in Markham.

            Some of the Asian markets on Gerrard east of Broadview have it.

            P.A.T Central Market in Koreatown (Bloor and Christie) has a few different kinds, but they are in the cooler, not warm. Nothing beats a warm can of coffee on a cold day! If anyone knows where I can find them WARM, I will bow down at your feet!

              Canned coffee? How come it does not surprise me that Japan is behind this? LOL.

                Canned coffee is delicious. In Japan, you can find it in vending machines. The machine vends cans of coffee cold for part of the year and then, voila, in the late fall, it is warm.

                  There is a Japanese grocery store called "Little Tokyo" on Augusta Street in Kensington Market. Almost every time I'm in the area I stop in to buy a couple cans of coffee from the refridgerator. They carry a few different Japanese brands, I can't remember exactly which ones I've tried, but they've all been very enjoyable.
