Dunkin' Donuts Coffee

Has anybody tried the DD coffee beans sold at the supermarket? I usually bring a friend a pound of DD coffee beans for the holidays (her favorite) and was curious if the beans are the same sold at DD.

      We have been ordering the beans through the mail for years, we love it!

      DD coffee states on the bag that it is *medium* roasted.

        Back to the DD coffee-yes it is good and yes they are selling it at Target. It tastes just as good as it does from buying it at the store. And I like it for a change from the usual starbucks my husband makes me drink. He bought me a bag this week and I am drinking it right now. It does make starbucks taste burnt when comparing the 2.

          America's Test Kitchen did a taste test of whole bean coffee not long ago and DD finished at or near the bottom. Their preference was either Starbucks or Millstone.

            I think Starbucks is about in the middle for me. Not horrible, but surely overrated. I like deep rich flavors, but not burned flavors, which I this is prevalent with Starbucks.

              ugh. starbucks is just bad coffee. they over-roast their beans, and it all tastes burnt.

              peet's is the way to go!

              For darker roasts, they liked Millstone and Starbucks; for light roasts they went with Green Mountain.

              I've been drinking DD Decaf lately, and find it quite good.
