Good Taste: good morning with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee

We are a coffee family. Coffee is a must-have every morning. I usually give myself extra time in the morning to enjoy my coffee – usually perusing blogs and creative sites - before I rush out the door. It’s a little bit of “me” time in the morning.

But I miss having coffee with my husband. He leaves for work very early so we don’t even see each other most mornings and the weekend mornings have become equally busy.

But one tradition that we have is cinnamon rolls and coffee on Christmas morning. I really look forward to the slow paced morning and opening of gifts while sipping my coffee. I even made these “his and her” coffee mugs for us.

I can see each Christmas morning throughout the years – from when our son was small and tearing open gifts to more recently a groggy teenager tearing open gifts. I can smell the cinnamon rolls and freshly brewed coffee.

This year I’m going to add a new scent to our tradition. I’m going to brew one of the Dunkin’ Donuts seasonal blends. I’m thinking Pumpkin Spice or Gingerbread Cookie.

Dunkin’ Donuts coffee has become a favorite among coffee drinkers. They started with a single donut shop over 60 years ago and today have over 6,000 locations. And even though they are named for their donuts, it’s their coffee that has become legendary.

The coffee is always freshly brewed at the Dunkin’ Donut locations and now it comes packaged and can be purchased at grocery stores. The go-to flavor is the Original Blend but for a limited time, the seasonal varieties will be available. Plus, they come with a cute gift tag so you can use them as stocking stuffers or holiday gifts. Package up a season blend bag of coffee with some homemade sweet treats for an extra special touch.

  1. I'm a huge D.D. fan...smiled cause I'm drinking one as I read your post. The problem with brewing at home is then you don't have the chance for a pumpkin donut....

  2. LOVE D.D :) Wish there was one a little closer to me, but I love that I can buy the bagged coffee at my local grocery store.

  3. I love Dunkin' Donuts ~ one opened just 3 miles from my house last year and I cannot tell you how often I frequent the drive thru with my refill mug ~ there is nothing like their coffee. Loved reading your post and I think I will try some of those seasonal flavors very soon!

  4. We do cinnamon rolls and coffee on Christmas morning too. :) I love DD's cafe mochas!
