This post is sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts. I’m an ambassador and will be sharing more throughout the year.
I told a few friends that I would be working with Dunkin’ Donuts this year, their immediate response was that “their coffee is so good.” And it is! I had no idea how much went into making sure that was the case though until I visited their headquarters in Boston.
They use 100% Arabica coffee beans, and I learned about the strict Dunkin’ Donuts Quality (DDQ) standards they hold themselves to throughout the entire process, from the beans being grown, harvested, roasted, and finally brewed. I went through the coffee cupping experience at their headquarters — noticing the differences between beans sourced from different regions. It reminded me of a wine tasting, and I had never compared coffee beans like that before. Their Original Blend is a light roast that brings together the best of several different coffee beans, and Dunkin’ Donuts Dark Roast is more bold, but still smooth without being bitter.
It all adds up to a reliable, freshly brewed cup of coffee. I only really got into drinking it a few years ago, and it quickly became a part of my daily routine. If I’ve got a busy day ahead of me, I need a little energy boost, and I especially love picking up a hot coffee when I have errands to run or places to take the kids. I work it into my routine — wake up and then wake everyone else up. Get the kids ready while Brandon showers, get myself ready while he does the school drop-off, grab my keys and head out the door, grab a drink, and get on with the day.
I feel extra fancy getting my coffee now, by the way. They gave me the Black Card! VIP right here.
