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:
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.
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
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.
