Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Caffeine Content Guide
Dunkin’ Donuts started as a donut bakery shop back in 1950 in Quincy, Massachusetts and since has become a worldwide franchise comprising almost 10,000 stores worldwide and almost 7,000 USA locations.
Here’s how Dunkin’ Donuts’ coffee and other beverages break down according to caffeine content.
Caffeine Amounts in Dunkin Donuts Beverages
|Decaf Coffee (Brewed)||9mg||13mg||18mg||22mg|
|Espresso||75mg (single)||97mg (double)||151mg (triple)||n/a|
|Hot Green Tea||60mg (6 floz)|
|Iced Green Tea||40mg*|
* Dunkin Donuts’ customer service stated that their ice green tea has 40mg/6 floz of the green tea mixture which is not including the ice and water added, therefore this is an estimated amount.
In addition to the above listed beverages, Dunkin’ Donuts has several flavored versions of their brewed coffee and espresso based coffee drinks. Some are available seasonally and others all year long.
The caffeine content of the flavored varieties would be the same as above, but would only depend on whether it is a brewed coffee beverage or an espresso based flavored beverage.
How Does Dunkin’ Compare?
Less ground coffee is used to make Dunkin’ Donuts brewed coffee and their espresso based drinks don’t follow the standard shot amounts.
For instance, a true double shot should have double the caffeine as a single shot and a triple shot, triple the caffeine. Dunkin’ doesn’t use double the amount of espresso ground coffee to make their ‘double’ shot, which results in less caffeine than a standard double shot.
Over the last 10 years Dunkin’ Donuts has strengthened their coffee brand significantly by introducing espresso based drinks as well as cold coffee beverages such as their popular Coolatta. Their coffee tends to be more affordable than other coffee houses and they have become just as popular for their coffee as they are for their 52 varieties of donuts.
For people who prefer less caffeine in their coffee and espresso beverages, Dunkin’ Donuts is a good choice.
