The coffee used to be tasty and washed down the donuts and bagels well. I used to buy their coffee all the time. And, I usually spent more money on donuts, sweet rolls and bagels too. It was a good cup of coffee for a fair price.
That all changed about the time they started the [ my coffee tastes better that your coffee ] ad campaigns; the coffee went DOWN HILL fast.
I don't think they used the same roaster as they did before the ads started. I wish they'd put the money into a quality bean instead of ads telling us how good their coffee tastes.
Now, I'll go without coffee rather than drink DD coffee!!!
ZERO STARS!!!!!!! Can I give then a negative star count?

Dunkin Donuts used to have the best coffee. There was a time when I could go to any DD's at any hour and get the same smooth cup of coffee. It's not that way anymore. Eight times out of ten I get a bitter tasting coffee. I used buy 2 coffees a day but no more. I'm tired of forcing myself to drink a 2 dollar cup of coffee that tastes like motor oil. I admit that there are times when I break down and want a coffee so I'll take a shot at Dunkin Donuts but I wind up disappointed and scold myself for being so stupid. It's too bad. Dunkin Donuts used to be great. How the mighty have fallen.

Seriously. Are you kidding me??? Do people actually consider Dunkin Donuts coffee to be good? Oh my gosh! It's a Donut chain! I have to echo an earlier reviewer who took the words right from my mouth ""It's hot water with a hint of coffee bean and sugar and cream to try and hide the fact that it has no flavor"". Seriously, the Marketing people for Dunkin Donuts deserve their pay. They have brainwashed an entire coast to think their products are good. Just put a Red Sox player on TV with DD and they're sold.
I'm so happy there are no Dunkin Donuts out here in the West. In San Francisco, you can't walk more than 2 blocks without coming across a local coffeehouse serving the most incredible coffee you have ever tasted. The thought of my fellow citizens with Dunkin Donuts coffee in their hands almost makes me want to jump in the Pacific. Coffee should be bold, with flavor - not watered down.
If we want chains, we go to Peets Coffee and Tea, which serves amazing coffee from all over the World. And the atmosphere is much better than a freakin donut shop. Seriously, Dunkin Donuts fans have made me not hate Starbucks so much. Id take that over DD any day.

Hoe can anyone say that Dunkin Donuts has the best coffee in Boston? This tells me that the voters don't know what good coffee is!!
Dunkin Donuts coffee is a very small step up from McDonalds coffee!!
Get serious people - its Dunkin Donuts! Voting them the best coffee in Boston is like voting McDonalds the most romantic dining experience!

I moved from Boston to Florida 10 years ago and no matter when I go to Boston for a visit, I WANT MY DUNKIN DONUTS COFFEE. It tops the Dunkin donuts in Cape Coral, FL. I think it maybe the water but I'll tell you, can't beat Massachusetts Dunkin Donuts!!!

Dunkin Donuts does not add anything to their coffee to make it any ""better"" with the exception of water and sugar. Their coffee is much weaker than any you would get at a halfway decent cafe, or even a Starbucks; and they load their coffee with sugar so that the end result is more like a hot cup of coffee ice cream than a real cup of coffee. In other words, they maximize profit by giving you less coffee.
As drive-thru drip filter coffee goes Dunkin Donuts coffee is ok. Because of their huge volume it is always hot and fresh. Personally I visit ""Dunkies"" every now and then because of convenience. But that is where my positive rating for this ubiquitous chain stops. Everything else about it is almost off the scale negative. The donuts are the worst, the atmosphere can only be compared to a public toilet (the tables are sometimes as dirty, too) and you can tell staff are treated badly and unfairly. This establishment is all about convenience and that's it. My recommendation is not to go there for any other reason.

I am very disappointed with DD's. I used to look forward to a good cup of coffe from this place, but they have really gotten bad over the past two years. The only reason why I go back is because there is nowhere else to go! You will never get the same taste twice. I order Med. Reg. French Vanilla every time. but their product is completly inconsistant. Sometimes it is old. Sometimes it is weak. I am always disappointed, no matter how many chances I give them!

Why would anyone go to Dunkin Donuts for coffee if they can go to Starbucks and get FRESH (not burning in the pot for 45 minutes) and varied dark-roast coffees? The #1 rating for DD must be from the set that orders 'extra light with 5 sugars'.
On a positive note, the bagels are decent, and the service is usually fast.

The only thing that I go to Dunkin Donuts for is the coffee. Dunkin Donuts definitely has the best coffee by far - not sure if there is some secret formula - or maybe it's cause the rest of the coffee in Boston is so bad. The service is great and there is always a friendly smile behind the counter - pity about the donuts
