10 Reasons Why Starbucks Beats Dunkin Donuts

The highly debated conversation on whether Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts is a better coffee destination has been going on since as long as I can remember. As a devoted Starbucks customer and lover of Venti Cool Lime Refreshers and Grande Flat Whites with Toffee Nut, I can not begin to fathom how someone would willingly choose to visit Starbucks' competitor. Here are 10 reasons why Starbucks hands down beats Dunkin Donuts:

1. Quality

Let's address the obvious: Dunkin Donuts coffee tastes burnt.

2. Homey atmosphere

Starbucks is THE prime study spot. How could you say no to their comfy couches?

3. Holiday cups

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

4. Free refills

As long as you stay in the store, you get a free refill on any drink.

5. Frappuccinos

Fraps fraps fraps.

6. Better service

The baristas are always super friendly and go above and beyond to please their customers.

7. More extensive menu

Caramel Macchiato, Chai Tea Latte, Hot Chocolate, "Customize Your Own Coffee/Latte/Tea." You name it, Starbucks got it.

8. Alright, business talk: Tighter margins

Starbucks operates its own stores, allowing for tighter margins than Dunkin Donuts (operating margins, profit margins, etc.)

9. Lactose intolerants welcome

Starbucks has dairy-free options.

And last, but not least...

10. Better food options

Does Dunkin Donuts have Cake Pops? I think not.

My Ethnicity

Hispanic is not a race... it’s an ethnicity. The term Hispanic describes a group of people whose common thread is language and/or culture. I’m a Hispanic woman born in Argentina to Korean parents. I self-identify as Hispanic/Latina and my personal experiences can’t be summarized by the color of my skin or the languages on my tongue. That is because every single person in the universe has a unique experience. Whether someone labels me as Korean or Argentine or American, that will never change my experiences as a Spanish speaker, immigrant, child of divorced parents, Californian, college graduate (Go Bears!), omnivore, writer, or any other label I choose for myself.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.
