Dunkin Donuts is famous for more than just their donuts! Many people across the world love the delicious Dunkin coffees. However, with such a vast selection of choices and ways to customize your drink, many people are unsure of exactly how to order their coffee at Dunkin Donuts! 

Ordering coffee at Dunkin Donuts can be done in person or through the official mobile application. When ordering a coffee, you’ll need to select your drink’s size, type, blend, flavors, and whether you’d like cream and sugar. On the Dunkin Donuts app, these choices are in an interactive menu. 

Whether you decide to order your Dunkin Donuts coffee online or in person, our quick guide will help get you the coffee you want! Once we’ve looked at ordering your coffee in-store, we’ll take a look at using the official Dunkin app, which comes with some unique benefits. 

Quick Guide To Ordering Coffee At Dunkin Donuts In Person 

When ordering your coffee in person at Dunkin Donuts, you might feel slightly under pressure – especially when just asking for “coffee” won’t cut it. Luckily, with our five steps, you can order the perfect Dunkin coffee every time! 

Step One: Choose Your Size 

Firstly, we suggest choosing the size of your drink. Dunkin Donuts keeps it simple in this regard, with a choice between four sizes. These are small, medium, large, and extra-large. These size choices are available for both hot and cold coffees, which is our next choice!   

Step Two: Choose Hot Or Iced

Once you’ve chosen the size of your coffee, you can choose between hot or iced coffee. There’s even a third option here: frozen. Frozen coffees are creamy and energizing – and can be customized just like any coffee ordered at Dunkin Donuts. 

Step Three: Choose Coffee Type 

It’s now time to choose your coffee type. Do you want a latte, cappuccino, americano, or macchiato? You’ll still be able to further customize your order by way of the blend, flavors, and sweeteners you add (or don’t). It’s up to you! 

Step Four: Choose Your Blend 

Dunkin Donuts has three different blends for customers to choose from, which are all sourced from 100% Arabica beans. These blends are Original Blend, Dark Roast, and Dunkin Decaf.  

Step Five: Choose Your Flavor 

You’re now ready to add some extra flavor to your drink. This can be done by adding flavor shots or swirls. Flavor shots are unsweetened and sugar-free. Flavor swirls, however, are more indulgent and creamier. Each type of flavor infusion is available in a variety of flavors. 

Flavor shots are available in French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Caramel, Toasted Almond, Blueberry, Raspberry, and Coconut. Flavor swirls, on the other hand, are available in Caramel, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Mocha, Winter White Chocolate, and Buttery Toffee Nut. 

Step Six: Choose Your Cream and Sugar 

Finally, you need to choose your sweetness. For extra cream and sugar, ask for your coffee to be light and sweet. For less sugar than normal, you can ask for easy sugar with your coffee. For less cream, you can choose a dark coffee. For no cream or sugar at all, you can ask for your coffee black.
