Dunkin’ Donuts Steps It Up With First Single Origin Coffee
Dunkin’ Donuts is stepping up their coffee quality game by offering a new Rainforest Alliance Certified Colombian packaged coffee — their first-ever single source coffee. Most chain coffee shops will offer blends from several different sources, but single-source coffee has been argued as more “premiere” or exotic. This particular medium roast with a full-bodied flavor and sweet finish” is available now while supplies last.
“As we are consistently looking for ways to expand our coffee portfolio with new blends and roasts, we have found that guests have become increasingly interested in origin variety coffee,” said Jim Cleaves, Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee excellence manager. “Colombia has by far the greatest reputation of any single country as the producer of fine quality coffee.”
The new limited-distribution packaged coffee is made with 30 percent coffee beans sourced from various Rainforest Alliance farms (Rainforest Alliance only requires that distributors use 30 percent certified coffee beans for the package to get the seal of approval),and will be available from August through December at Dunkin’ Donuts locations.
