Coffee and college go hand in hand, so it’s safe to assume that most college students are coffee addicts. Since this has created the continuing debate of Starbucks versus Dunkin’, here’s why I think that, as college students, we should all run on Dunkin’.
1. Their beans are Fair Trade Certified™
Dunkin’ Donuts makes their lattes and cappuccinos with 100% Fair Trade Certified™ espresso beans. This makes them the first national brand to sell espresso beverages that are made exclusively with Fair-Trade Certified™ espresso beans.
2. They employ expert taste-testers
Dunkin’ keeps quality high with highly-trained coffee experts. Anyone volunteer to taste an average of coffee every day?
3. They’re everywhere
They have a whopping total of 11,300 locations. Dunkin’ Donuts is in 41 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, and 36 countries around the world.
4. You can make Dunkin’ in your PJs
With an extensive line of packaged coffees and K-Cup Packs, you can enjoy your Dunkin’ just about anywhere. They offer five popular flavors: Original Blend, Dunkin’ Decaf®, French Vanilla, Hazelnut and Dunkin’ Dark® Roast.
5. You can count calories
Switch out cream for milk in a medium drink to cut 50-60 calories. Or save yourself 160 calories with a medium Latte Light instead of one with whole milk and sugar. Eliminate 170 possible calories by switching out your plain bagel or croissant for an English muffin. Need to cut calories? The possibilities are endless.
6. There are over 25,000 ways to order your coffee
Butter Pecan, Mocha, Caramel Mocha, Cookie Dough, Caramel, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, and even Pistachio! You can get any of these flavor swirls in the Original Blend or in Dunkin’ Dark® Roast Iced Coffee!
Glazed. Chocolate. Strawberry. Vanilla Frosted. Old Fashioned. Boston Kreme. Glazed Chocolate Cake. Jelly. Powdered Sugar. Cinnamon. Sugar Raised. Blueberry Cake.

#SpoonTip: Dunkin’ also has a partnership with Baskin-Robbins, so kill two sweet, sweet birds with one stone.
