Nothing special about the brewer, pretty standard Bunn, likely a APR, often for sale at places like Sams Club or on line. Unless you serve the whole "pot" in a few minutes, it is best to buy a maker that brews straight into an Airpot, such as the VPR-APS, roughly the same price as the pot brewer but no burner to scald the brewed coffee on and a sealed air pot to keep it hot. Most high end coffee shops, brew into air pots and dump anything over an hour old, or the coffee will take on the "air pot" flavor.

Nice job on digging up a 3 year old thread :D

Do ask questions,  do talk about the things you wish to talk about. What is it that has you so interested in Dunkin? :D

Well Dunkin coffee is a novelty to me because you cant get it where I live (in Canada). I have to make a three hour drive just to pick up a bag in the nearest American city. Its kind of like that with other American goods too like caribou coffee/some snackfoods/ and even some Big American restaurants for example. They taste better to me just because they are treats. However, Im sure the big American chains/goods probably arnt as good as the American/Canadian specialty coffee shops and restaurants, ect. Im probably better off trying local roasters serving fresh than the big American coffees from grocery stores that serve stale, preground coffee.

Well, I know I would not drive 20 minutes to buy it unless it was the ONLY coffee to be had, it is not worth a 3 hour drive round trip!

I think most of the "good" rep that many places like Dunkin have for "good" coffee is due to that years ago, when only very poor, burnt, brown water CALLED coffee was found for take out, any OK brewed coffee by comparison was outstanding. Thus came the good rep as it was consistently OK and easy to find, just look for the Dunkin Doughnut sign!

We have moved on from that, well a lot of us here have anyway, and we most often would call their coffee "acceptable" not great when viewed through the glasses of 3rd wave coffee.

You have Tim Hortens (sp?) when we do not so I suspect that it may be a "treat" or "novelty" here as it is not the norm.

I only pick up a bag if Im in the states anyway, however, I will agree it is not exceptional coffee. What is the 3rd wave of coffee?

Yes, I should of just checked Wikipedia, they have everything! It sounds like third wave is great, however, I prefer dark roasts, and from what wikipedia says, third wave is about lighter roasts.
