Primarily if I drink coffee to go, it’s Starbucks. However, every once in a blue moon I’ll grab a cup of Dunkin’ Donut’s coffee, at which time I will usually grab one of their delicious sesame seed bagels with cream cheese as well.
One night last week I was on the phone with my nephews’ wife, Grace, (Hi, Grace!) and we were talking about different brands of coffee because the two of us are java lovers. In fact, we love it so much that we can't even begin to think about starting our day without having a cup. Except for me, it's more like an IV drip into my arm for 30 minutes before I can string words together to form a coherent sentence. Anyway, somehow we ended up discussing Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and both felt that it wasn't hearty enough for our taste because we like a richer, stronger coffee. Yet, we agreed that is was probably the HOTTEST coffee you could ever drink.
And I’m not just talking hot….I’m talking CENTER OF THE EARTH HOT.
Dunkin’ Donuts coffee is like sipping lava from a volcano that erupted in Pompeii.
It’s the kind of hot that melts your lips, tongue and teeth, while singeing off your nose hairs, causing you to hail a cab and drive to the nearest burn treatment center.
It seems that whenever I get a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, I have to take the lid off, throw in a 5 Ib. bag of ice cubes, and then let it cool down overnight before I can take my first sip.
Don’t get me wrong, I like my coffee hot, but not when it’s so hot you can’t even taste the coffee because it scalds your taste buds to the point of feeling like they've been individually burned off with a soldering iron.
I often think, “What kind of high-powered coffee brewer do they use that makes their coffee so hot and KEEPS it hot?”
Because whatever brewer they do use, their coffee appears to have been brewed to 1,292 to 2,192 °F and what I imagine the temperatures to be in HELL.
Well, I guess that’s what Dunkin’ Donuts tagline means when it says, “One Taste And You’ll Understand.”
What bitchin' HOT is...
Wishing you a cool Monday, y'all!
