Different packaging for Dunkin' Donuts Original Coffee?
Hi! I have lived in Spain and now am in New Zealand and crave my Dunkin' Donuts Original Coffee to brew at home, especially since DD stores in these countries only brew espresso based drinks in their stores.
In the US, of course, you can buy the classic DD coffee in the orange packets in all stores and grocery stores. However, in Spain and in NZ they sell DD coffee in a brown design.
My question... is there a difference in the coffee inside? It’s virtually impossible to get the orange packaged coffee shipped, companies selling it on Amazon won't ship outside of the US, I'm guessing because off licensing issues.
But am I getting the same coffee in the brown packet?
I don’t have a definitive answer to your question.
However, I suspect that the coffee from the brown packet is unlikely to be the same as your old favorite in the orange packet.
Why do I say that?
Because Dunkin’ is a vast organization.
It has over 12,000 locations located in 36 different countries.
Now imagine trying to make all the coffee in all those locations and countries taste the same. It’s an impossible task.
Besides which, different countries have different tastes and expectations.
For example, sell a dark-roasted coffee from America to an Italian in Rome, and he’s tell you it’s a medium roast, not dark.
Not only is it impossible for Dunkin’ to maintain the exact same taste in every country in the world, it isn’t even a smart idea.
Your best bet is to beg friends and family to stuff their cases with the orange bags each time they come out to visit.
If anyone reading this has actually had the opportunity to compare coffees from the two different packages, please let us know!
