Re: POLL: STARBUCKS OR DUNKIN?

I have always liked Dunkin coffee.  Plain hot coffee--not the flavored kind.    I never liked Starbucks--too strong and bitter to me.

Definitely Dunkin!  That's the only coffee I purchase by the bags.

Starbucks coffee is muddy tasting to me.  Not at all worth the $$.

I have never liked Starbucks and can't understand why people would like strong, bitter tasting coffee, it is horrible.  Dunkin is better.

Maybe I'm late to the show, but it seems like Dunkin has not only matched Starbucks for coffee flavor but has surpassed them. Whenever I have bought a cup of black coffee from Starbucks I am turned off by the bitter, flat flavor. I have recently been going to Dunkin and LOVE the toasty, nutty,  non-acidic brew they offer. And they are a lot cheaper than Starbucks. Which company would you vote for?

I actually like coffee from both places but Starbucks always gets my order right. With smiling eyes behind their masks. I stopped going to Dunkin because they do not seem to understand my simple orders. 

 

If you find the coffee at SB to be bitter you may just need to try a few different ones to find what you like.

I prefer Starbucks, but I always get venti iced lattes.  I love them.  I like Dunkin's lattes, too, but they aren't as large.

Neither.   I rarely buy coffee when I'm out, unless it's after dinner in a restaurent.  One cup in the morning, at home, and that's all I need.

 

I've always thought Starbucks had a bitter, inferior taste ....  which is why they have to mask it with so many sugars, syrups, whipped cream, etc.  ...  so you don't notice the bitterness.

 

I don't think I've ever had Dunkin coffee.
