National Coffee Day

5 Tips for Making Great Coffee at Home

National Coffee Day is Sunday, September 29, and Dunkin Donuts wants to help you celebrate by offering some coffee-brewing tips to make perfect coffee at home. This holiday was developed to support the numerous farms that provide the world with our favorite beverage. Some have been observing this day for 30 years.

Dunkin Donuts is known for its great-tasting coffee, and many customers ask how we achieve such perfection. Use this handy infographic to make the best coffee from home. To brew perfect coffee, you have to start with the right ingredients. Fresh is one of the first words that comes to mind when thinking of DD coffee. Once you open a package, use it within two weeks, and always grind whole beans just before brewing.

Take care to clean your brewer in between each pot for the best taste. Leftover residue may tarnish the full flavors and aromas of the new brew. Do not pre-boil the water you use. Cold, fresh water will make the best coffee whether it is filtered or from the tap. Overcooking your coffee can also impact the characteristics, so don't leave the pot on the burner after it is done.

How you store your coffee is important when brewing from home. Opaque, air-tight containers are best for storing coffee grinds or whole beans. Leave the container on the counter or in a cabinet at room temperature, and never store coffee in the refrigerator or freezer.

By following these simple tips, you can brew perfect coffee at home the Dunkin Donuts way. In celebration of National Coffee Day, why not order a coffee subscription for great taste delivered straight to your door? Choose your favorite flavors that feature 100-percent Arabica beans ground or whole bean. You select the quantity and time frame for delivery, so you never have to worry about stocking your kitchen.
