A Brewing Battle: Dunkin Donuts vs. Cumberland Farms

Cumberland Farms Rt. 4 291 Spielman Hwy, Burlington

When it comes to coffee, what is more important, quality or quantity? Also how much money do you think is a reasonable amount to pay for a coffee?

Do you need a large selection of flavors?

Or do you just like cream and sugar?

Do you prefer to have your coffee made for you or make it yourself?

Depending on what you answered for those questions, you would prefer either Dunkin Donuts coffee or Cumberland Farms coffee.

Cumberland Farms, a gasoline, convenience, and coffee retailer, announced the results of a double blind coffee taste test, revealing that half of Dunkin’ Donuts’ own coffee drinkers determined that Cumberland Farms Farmhouse Blend coffee tasted just as good as Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend coffee.

In total, half of the respondents either preferred the taste of Cumberland Farms or had no preference.

At just 99 cents any size, Cumberland Farms Farmhouse Blend coffee is a great value for coffee drinkers, who have many options to choose from when deciding where to purchase their coffee.

If you are pressed for time before school but need a coffee to get you through the day and are someone who enjoys making your coffee yourself, Cumberland Farms is a great option to consider.

Many people overlook Cumberland Farms coffee, which results in very short and quick lines within the store.

Once arriving at the coffee station, you can pick from a 20 or 32-ounce cup. Amazingly, the two sizes are the same price. Also, you can choose the amount of ice in your coffee to ensure that you are getting enough coffee to satisfy your caffeine craving.

Customers can pick between regular, decaffeinated, or the “bold” coffee for a stronger coffee flavor. You can then select whatever coffee syrup they have in season (pumpkin, peppermint etc.) or a flavor shot of caramel, french vanilla, caramel apple, hazelnut, blueberry, or mocha. There tends to be two cash registers open, and paying is light on the wallet as any sized coffee is an extremely affordable $1.06 including tax.

The results are based on an independent, double blind taste test of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee drinkers in four major markets where both Cumberland Farms and Dunkin’ Donuts stores are located.

If you plan on going to Dunkin Donuts be prepared to wait at least ten minutes for your coffee as the well-known chain is a more popular choice to get people through the day.

Along with their delicious donuts, Dunkin has several coffee combinations. Most notably, DD carries caramel swirl, french vanilla, and mocha flavor shots. They also have three sizes to choose from (small, medium, and large). A huge advantage for Dunks is being able to have a hot cup for medium and small sized coffees

Whatever your preference for coffee is, Cumberland Farms is clearly the more economical choice, and hopefully this article will make people more aware of that.

A rare, clockwise-spinning tornado touches down in South Dakota

South Dakota doesn’t get a lot of tornadoes, but a twister there last weekend was particularly rare — because it was spinning clockwise. The National Weather Service says the anticyclonic tornado only lasted for about 45 seconds on June 15. That was long enough for it to knock down seven trees at a farmstead outside of Estelline, which is about 80 miles north of Sioux Falls. Only about 1% of tornadoes that hit the Northern Hemisphere rotate in a clockwise […]
