  1. It is the way it is brewed! Your home coffee maker is to fast and not hot enough. Find a brewer that is a bit slower and the right temp. \U0001f44d

  2. They use a Bunn machine so it flows faster than most any home machine around. It may also flow a bit hotter. It is filtered water and usually held in a reservoir and heated before making. I’m not sure of the quantity of grinds you are using but it should be somewhere around 2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water to match theirs. Their grinds are probably fresher than the ones you are using. The beans they are using are probably fresher than the ones you are using.
    Now for the hard part. To really get that perfect cup of coffee shop coffee you are going to have to bake and fry a bunch of sweet doughs, brew several gallons of coffee, have some yeast rising, a few people dropping in and leaving and maybe even a coffee roaster going. All of these things contribute to the experience and the flavor of that cup you have at the shop. Without these smells and feelings that cup will have a flat spot in its profile just like the best meal at home not being quite as good as the same thing in a restaurant.

  3. We use about half a cup to 3/4 of ground coffee per pot. We use actual half and half cream (with buttermilk) to give it that nice taste we all like. Everything is measured and calculated in the machines.
    The iced coffee is completely different. We brew it with 25 ounces of ground coffee to make those multi-gallon pitchers. Throw in some ice and water, and its ready to go in 20 minutes. Same cream, but liquid sugar instead of granulated.
    The flavors, like caramel, mocha, cookie dough, pistachio, and butter pecan, are all sweetened syrups in pumps. We do have unsweetened flavors. Toasted almond, blueberry, raspberry, and hazelnut.
    Hope that helps

  4. You’re probably not using enough coffee. Try grinding the beans fresh, then use 200F water for four minutes. 5:1 ratio by volume, or 17:1 by weight. Adjust one variable at a time until it tastes the way you want.

  5. It is all aabout water temperature and volume! This is why the coffee may taste different between stores also. Their are guidlines in place to create that perfect cup, but in reality a lot of employees aren’t always doing their job and temping.

  6. I live in Canada so I’ve never had dunkin donuts coffee. Also I don’t know how you are brewing your coffee. That being said, I will venture a guess.
    You probably are not putting enough coffee grounds in the pot. Does the coffee package give you directions? If so follow them. I would assume the company wants your coffee at home to taste as it does in the shop. If you aren’t already using filtered water try that. Chlorine and minerals in water can affect the taste.
