Thank you to Dunkin Donuts for providing the coffee for review. The honest opinions are my own.
I love coffee. Everything about it. The aroma of a newly opened can. The sounds of it brewing. Holding the warm cup in my hand, thinking about what I will accomplish today.
So I was very excited to receive upon my porch a box containing three bags of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee – French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Cinnamon Spice.
My first pick was Cinnamon Spice. I opened the bag a was immediately enveloped in the smell of Cinnamon. As it brewed, the entire kitchen smelled like a cinnamon stick – heavenly. The taste brought back memories of the Coffee Cinnamon Toast* my mother made me as a child, I made for my children, and now make for my grandchildren.
The next morning I tried the Hazelnut. It also was very flavorful, but not my favorite of the three.
The third morning was French Vanilla. It had a very smooth flavor with no aftertaste. In fact, I could drink it black which doesn’t usually happen! My husband who is strictly a no flavor, black coffee drinker even stated he would drink the French Vanilla.
I also decided to try the coffees mixed in with another brand of decaffeinated coffee and was impressed that they all kept their flavor.
I was happy to see that the Dunkin Donuts bags can be kept in room temperature, in a cool dark place. I hate keeping coffee in the refrigerator, it takes up too much room.
Would I buy these flavors and recommend them?
* Coffee Cinnamon Toast is made by putting a teaspoon of brown sugar on a piece of toast and spread it around. Then sprinkle cinnamon on top. The next step is where our handed down recipe differs from other Cinnamon Toast recipes – we top the toast with just enough coffee to melt the sugar. Amazing!
