Cheap Coffee of the Week – DUNKIN DONUTS ORIGINAL BLEND

When it comes to cheap coffee, Dunkin Donuts is the proverbial 800-pound gorilla in the room. They’re making a play for America’s coffee pot and want to be a competitor to Starbucks in made-to-go coffee.

At $6.00 for a 12 oz bag at my local Target store, however, DD enters the cheap coffee realm. While they can’t compete with Starbucks and Peets’ grocery store offerings, DD is the Best Cheap Coffee Ever. By comparison with canned coffees, it’s much smoother, more sophisticated, and a wonderful morning blend. Not much of a hint of Robusta beans in the mix.

Even using a Melitta cone filter, boiling hot water, and making single cups (the best way to extract the most of your coffee’s flavor and minimize waste, IMO) I went through this bag in a little over a week and a half.

My rating? Four cups.
