Dunkin Donuts is not a coffee establishment, it's a fast food donut chain.

Dunkies hasn't been good since they stopped making the donuts on site. Fresh donuts, right out of the fryer?  Awesome. Donuts made last night and trucked in? Suckola.

HotWingAgenda: Dunkin Donuts is not a coffee establishment, it's a fast food donut chain.


They've always been a coffee place, but they hearken back to an older era, an era before every cup of coffee needed three cups of sugar and half a gallon of milk in it. Their flagship donut, the titular  dunkin' donut, was explicitly designed for their coffee- it had a little nub that could be used as a handle so that you could dunk it more fully.

While their coffee isn't the greatest thing you'll find, it's still one of the better mass market chains for coffee. Given the choice between Starbucks and Dunkies, Dunkies every time.

1. The Speakeasy is not a cafe.  It was a decent Ami bar in Berlin.
2. Subby, you poor bastard, some of us roast our own coffee.

I get my coffee at Speedway gas stations or Loves truck stops.  Cheap, adequate, and no douchenozzles in my way trying to order a drink more complex that the plumbing in a nuclear sub.

Dunkin Donuts' coffee tastes like whale p!ss.

This got me thinking about Mister Donut.  Apparently, there are 1300 Mister Donuts in Japan.
 
2013-10-20 07:18:32 PM  
While I seldom have coffee that I didn't make myself, my favorite donut place is a local shop run by an Asian family, best damn donut I've ever had.
 
2013-10-20 07:21:58 PM  
Great coffee, shiat donuts. Decent bagels too, have to settle in Jacksonville because there aren't any authentic, Jewish-owned delis here. No, Einstein Bros doesn't count.

Maybe you could take it home, pour it into a pan, and burn it for a while so it'll take more like Starbucks...

Nor do they sell chocolate coconut. It's a crime, really. The only donuts left that are actually worth eating are the butternut and the sour cream.

Pretty sure the prohibition was before the Cold War...

Missing from the list: It was the victim of Bain Capitalization, where they changed the business model from donut made in the store to donuts made in a factory. A Dunkin Donut is no better than hitting the pastry case at QT or RaceTrac at this point. Maybe a little fresher than 7-11.

Also, Baskin Robbins doesn't own any ice cream plants anymore. That's all gone to contract manufacturers.

Really not a fan of Dunkins coffee.  To me, tastes like weak dishwater most of the time.  Now if you really want good coffee on the run, there is only one place.

I dunno what it's like elsewhere, but in the Baltimore area, there are no packs of sugar or creamer for you to mix. They mix it for you. This makes Dunkin Donuts coffee suck tremendously. The sweetness scale for their sugar dispensing machine goes like this: 1 sugar = no discernible flavor. 2 sugar = ungodly sweet to the point my 6 year old niece wouldn't drink it.

I like being able to chose the exact amount of sweetness. Just give me two sugar packs and call it a day. We'll be good from there.

Now hold on a minute. When I was a young boy in New England my grandfather would take me out on his boat early in the morning, and if we were lucky we'd get a couple of buckets of whale piss to take back and sell down the market. Well, we did this until Dunkin Donuts and their fancy coffee came along and put us out of business. So don't tell me their coffee tastes like whale piss - you don't know what real whale piss tastes like, and until you do you can keep your hoity-toity I'm-too-good-to-drink-whale-piss comments to yourself.

I have taste ass, but not burnt ass.  Still, you can imagine what something tastes like burnt.

Still prefer the ass to Starbucks.

The coffee is really inexpensive.
I never have to wait for other customers.

Yes. I, too, was dumbfounded by how little content was included in this article.  Even by Yahoo standards, it was pretty weak.

/hell, it would have been weak by Buzzfeed standards, too
//just add some Disney Princess gifs
///seriously, what the hell is up with those Buzzfeed sponsored links?  Drew, if you're reading this, I think you should make shame banners like Wikipedia does.  You know, "If every person who read this donated $2, this fundraiser could be over in 2 hours" or whatever.  Yours could say, "If every person who read this joined Total Fark for a month, we could never have Buzzfeed sponsored links again."  If you do that, Drew, I will bite the bullet and buy myself a TF subscription.  I promise.

I drink a lot of coffee like a LOT of coffee. Oak cliff roasters in dallas is the best I've ever had. However, it's infested with hipsters, even for oak cliff, they need to have that place sprayed.

The best to worst coffee I've ever had, in order: Claire de Lune in San Diego; Public Domain in Portland; Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (coffee chain); Peet's (coffee chain); Starbucks (coffee chain); random homeless guy pissing through a filter after he drinks a 7-Eleven coffee (franchised); Dunkin' Donuts (donut chain)

Believe it or not, the best coffee I have found outside my own coffee pot is at Cumberland Farms. And it's only $1.07 for any size cup.
