Since then, our coffee has remained an important part of millions of guests' daily lives, helping busy people start their morning and keep on running any time of day or night. For National Coffee Day in 2016, we say cheers to 66 years by making Dunkin' Donuts' signature hot coffee available on September 29 for only 66 cents for a medium-sized cup."

According to the NPD Group / CREST, Dunkin' Donuts is a leader in the hot and iced coffee categories in the U.S. The company sells more than 1.9 billion cups of hot and iced coffee globally ever year. In addition to the brand's signature hot and iced Original Blend Coffee, Dunkin' Donuts offers Rainforest Alliance Certified™ Dark Roast, which uses a unique blending and roasting process to create a bold flavor and smooth finish without the bitterness typically associated with most dark roast coffees. Dunkin' Donuts also offers a full lineup of espresso beverages, including cappuccino, espresso, hot and iced lattes, and hot and iced macchiato.
Additionally, Dunkin' Donuts restaurants nationwide now offer Cold Brew coffee, prepared by steeping a special blend of coffee in cold water over an extended period of time to extract a uniquely distinctive flavor from the beans. The longer brewing process provides a rich, smooth coffee with an inherently sweeter flavor reminiscent of dark chocolate. Cold Brew coffee is crafted by hand in Dunkin' Donuts restaurants in small batches and served each day while supplies last.
