Dunkin’ Donuts New Espresso Drinks Are Perfect Summertime Beverages On The Go

This is a partnered post with Dunkin’ Donuts

My husband is a huge fan of everything Dunkin’ Donuts- for breakfast any time of day or a coffee break 24/7. I can honestly say he visits our local Dunkin’ Donuts about 4 times a week at least, and is always trying something new (their menu is always offering unique new treats). Dunkin’ Donuts recently introduced some new espresso drink flavors we just had to try, and they are fabulous! We tried both the Coconut Crème Pie Latte and the Caramel Macchiato, and well… just take a look:

The Dunkin’ Donuts’ Coconut Crème Pie flavored latte is available iced or hot, and hit their menu on March 27. It offers a refreshing combination of creamy vanilla mixed together with coconut and sweet pie crust flavors. It’s inspired by the current popular trend for coconut (everyone seems to love the fresh flavor of coconut) and the Dunkin’ Donuts’ Coconut Crème Pie latte is rich with the taste of it. We ordered it cold for a day in the 70s, topped with yummy whipped cream, and this latte was better than dessert!

Dunkin’ Donuts’ Macchiato is a handcrafted, layered espresso beverage made with milk, then topped with a double shot of Dunkin’ Donuts’ rich, freshly-brewed espresso, available hot or iced. We ordered this cold too, in rich Caramel, and you can actually see the graduating layers in the drink. There are other options for the flavor swirls, such as French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Mocha, Butter Pecan and Coconut Crème… whatever strikes your fancy and taste buds. The Dunkin’ Donuts’ Macchiato with a caramel flavor twist is perfect for a summer day, just the thing to grab before heading to the beach.

Dunkin’ Donuts Espresso offerings are pretty broad, including cappuccino, espresso, hot and iced lattes, and hot and iced Macchiatos. Whenever I bring treats for my sons’ teachers or a work event, I stop by and order a mix of a dozen different beverages because there are so many to choose from, and all are pretty much a hit. The two new drinks that we tried today are amazing, a great pick-me-up for the last days of school for those hardworking teachers.

Dunkin’ Donuts Espresso beverages are all 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified™ and sustainably grown to benefit farmers, wildlife and the environment, and the espresso beans are selected from the finest Arabica beans to be high quality. Dunkin’ Donuts grinds their espresso beans fresh to order just moments before each cup of espresso is brewed, so the flavor is that much fresher and richer. I can just smell the rich aroma as I type this…. does anything smell better than freshly ground espresso beans? Add the right amount of fresh milk and foam and you have a perfect espresso beverage, and Dunkin’ Donuts has made beverage perfection an art.
