    What's the point? It is just a website for another coffee company...

    Don't drink it, don't care. Personally I think it tastes like goat urine.

    Gonz, Just an assumption, never liked the taste. I should have clarified.

    I drink Maxwell House or Folgers. Yuppies drink Starbucks. Coffee Beans come from Coffee Trees. I pay a lot less, per cup, than the Yuppies. Idiots.

    I drink Starbucks, and I am far from being a yuppie!

    Their regular coffee is just ten cents more a cup than Dunkin Donuts, and the Baristas understand and speak English. Every once in a while I splurge and get one of the fancy coffee beverages, and if I need a shot of caffeine to get me going in the AM I'll order a doppio espresso (the foam and color remind me of Guinness, as does the flavor!)

    There is one Dunkin Donuts franchise that I will never frequent again... the evening of our 3 alarm fire, we sent a firefighter out to Dunkie's do get 5 boxes of joe for the troops at the fire scene. The usual practice is the Fire Department charges any food/beverage brought to a scene and will reimburse the vendor after the incident. All of the other Dunkies in town do this for us with no problem.

    This particular DD franchise, the closest one to the fire scene, flatly refused us, saying that "because he gives the police free coffee, we (the Fire Department) shouldn't be expecting any freebies or credit from him"...

    How do you say "mutt" in his native language, Portugese?
