No, I wanted coffee

Disclaimer: I work at Starbucks. (But I am a patron of numerous other coffee shops in the area.)

I don’t understand why people like Dunkin’ Donuts. I know people who are committed to it and its coffee like I’m committed to the Vikings (with or without Brett Favre). On Sunday I was driving somewhere and really wanted some coffee. DD was the only coffee-esque establishment I was going to pass on my 25 minute drive, so I went through the drive-thru and ordered a medium iced coffee.

It sucked. First, it cost fifty cents more than it would have at Starbucks. Second, it looked like it had been sitting on the counter since there were just a few small ice cubes floating on the top. Third, it tasted like it had been sitting on the counter. It tasted like one part skim milk, one part water, one part sugar, and half a part coffee.

People complain about Starbucks being overpriced (which it is), but at least it has good quality. And in my recent experience nearly every coffee shop around is at least as much, if not more, than the Bucks.

P.S. So I don’t look too biased, I would say the best iced coffee in our area is Caribou. It was Dunn Bros. but they closed.

  1. 4 Relz bro. For some reason east coast people think DD is the shiz. Not only are the drinks from the store bad, but the ground coffee in the store tastes exactly the same as Folger’s. If you’re going to get bad coffee you might as well save some money and get it at the gas station.

  2. Their donuts suck too! They have no clue what a maple bar is!!
