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!
Thank you to Dunkin Donuts for providing the coffee for review. No compensation was received. The opinions are mine and that of my family.
