Dunkin Donuts Dark Coffee

Before my second child, I wasn’t a coffee drinker. There was a short stint in college where I was getting less sleep than a mommy of 2, but that had more to do with lots of boys, lots of partying, and lots of studying than anything else. Jen will attest to our crazy semester of memorizing poetry that I’m sure we’d never use again (except for Jeopardy questions). In that brief moment of my life, I’d attest to being a coffee drinker. In the years since then, I’ve been more of a tea or hot cocoa girl.

Now, with only sleeping 4 hours a night, coffee is my best friend. I prefer a smooth and mellow breakfast blend, but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try Dunkin’ Donuts Dark Roast.

Upon opening the sample pack to brew, you are assaulted by a rich pungent smell reminiscent of burnt toast. The bean is finely ground at the factory and tasted sweeter than some French Roasts I’ve tried. You can tell just by looking at the grounds that this coffee will brew dark, dark, dark.

After brewing, the scent was very sweet with caramel notes that didn’t betray the underlying bitter taste when drinking the coffee black. Luckily, the sharp and acrid burnt flavor went away after adding milk and sugar.

I once worked at a Dunkin Donuts during a fate-filled stay in Maine. Thus, I know how they use the milk and sugar to round out flavors in the coffee. I also remember the ratios. A splash of milk and 2 spoonfuls of sugar later, and my coffee tasted delicious. The salt in the milk evened out the bitterness, and the sugar sweetened it further.

Now I can see how they describe this blend as robust and full bodied. The texture is still very smooth – exceptionally so for such a dark coffee. Tastes of coffee, caramel, and chocolate are all underlying with no terrible aftertaste.

I’d give this a solid 8 out of 10. They lose 2 points for a terrible smell upon opening the package, and mouth puckering bitterness in a black coffee.

and for Jen: TURNING and turning in the widening gyre…

    I wish I drank coffee more often, because I would be willing to try this. Actually, I should… I like my coffee (when I drink it) flavored with chocolate and caramel flavors!

  2. My husband really liked this coffee AND he drinks it black but I think he’s crazy! I liked it with milk and sugar and liked it well enough, but I’m not a coffee expert – I drink it and like it or I don’t.

    Just reading that line of the poem made my hands hurt, remembering writing it over and over and over trying to will it into memorization the night before that test – my hand FELL ASLEEP while I was writing it that morning!!
