The Brew of The Week- Dunkin’ Donut Hazelnut Coffee

February 7, 2010

Being a big fan of Dunkin’ Donuts it has become a rare treat for me to have since they pulled out of the West coast. Thrilled to see a Dunkin’ Donut for the first time in about two years I snapped up a couple of bags of the coffee to brew at home. It was a bit upsetting to see the only way I could get it was ground and not whole bean, but my grandparents don’t have a grinder so I didn’t let it bother me.

Now, I have had Dunkin’ Donut coffee in the stores in the past and rather enjoy it with a doughnut or a bagel, but the prebagged stuff is another story. Upon opening it the smell of some nasty concoction (not hazelnut)¬†wafted¬†out of the bag. Not letting it stop me I pour the grounds into the coffee maker and waited. What came out was not coffee. It was beyond the most foul toxin that I have drank. This could not be right. I may not be a master coffee maker, but I love coffee and have worked at Dunkin’ Donuts setting up all of the coffee machines while in college. I’m confident in what it should taste like at all.

So, what did I learn from this? Well, the Dunkin Donut commercials may say that they won in a blind taste test over Starbucks, but I know that they didn’t win with this stuff. Next time I’ll brew dirt before another Dunkin’ Donuts blend.
