Need a replacement for Dunkin Donuts ground or whole bean coffee


Recommended Posts

Recently the price of Dunkin Donuts ground or whole bean coffee by the pound jumped by 33%. I used to be able to buy four pounds for $27; now they're $36.

I'm looking for a more affordable replacement -- that's a mellow medium flavor, like DD.....

Anything Starbucks related is out, my palate considers their coffee to have been burned rather than properly roasted....

Suggestions? I'm on the East Coast -- so it should be either available in supermarkets/Sam's/BJ's or by mailorder....

Sorry but some things I refuse to budget. Jamaican Blue Mountain whole bean medium roast. I grind it at the fine setting each time I make a cup of coffee. Pure ambrosia. Check out Lina Epicure in Canada on line.

Well Nik you could checkout the following place. http://www.coffeeforless.com/whole-coffee-beans.html It is the order site for Tully's Coffee from Seattle. I have two sisters that used to work in the same building where they have a store and always loved getting some of their coffee when I would visit. The Jamaican Blue Mountain is one of the coffee;s listed on this site.

My coffee comes from the nearest gas station or convenience, or sometimes from Mickey D's. But, I just retired after almost 32 years as a police officer and though I have consumed an endless stream of coffee, I have only had "designer" coffee once or twice. My "commoner type" palate would not stand any of the "gourmet" blends. By the way, I have only had one cup of coffee from Starbucks that a friend brought me to the range. It was way over rated.

No question about it; the price of coffee has been going up since the first of this year.

Root cause of this phenomenon is - - - - - - - OBAMACARE !

(OBAMACARE has also caused Global Warming and Stanford's loss to USC.)

same here.since generic coffee's prices skyrocketed i see no point in saving only few bucks a pound when i can get much tastier coffee beans . i stick with Brown kenya AA beans ground to 5 . tried many others i like as well . among them tanzania peaberry AA Brown , galapagos , maragogyp Brown , maui Brown and peru organic gets my highest ratings. i find them all Under the same roof at a local specialty coffee shop

Ditto on the "Eight o Clock Columbian Peaks" as a DD cheaper alternative. Its not too bad.
Another one I found that's even better, IMO, is "Wesley Farms Columbian Supremo" found at BJ's Wholesale Club. I buy it whole bean and I'm very impressed at how satisfying it is. Its as close as I can get to DD.
