Never tasted their coffee, but their raised donuts make one heck of a
decadent "bread pudding"!

 what's your take on Krispy Kreme? The times I'd bought their beans--before
I either had easy walk-in access to specialty roasters or started
home-roasting--I found they seemed fresher than DD and had a wider variety
of roasts.

dunkin is not the worst coffee buyer out there, by far. i have known couple
of their cuppers, as well as the people at the independent coffee lab that
checks their blends and roasts. I mean, they don't buy anywhere near the
caliber of brazils that a real specialty roaster would, nor do they buy at
the level of illy, but they are a lot better than brands like lavazza and
such. and in the past 5 years or so they have been making a quality push.
well, i don't mean to be here arguing on behalf of dd ... i mean, i wouldn't
want to drink that stuff.

Yuck to Krispy Kreme donuts!! WAY too much sugar, no real flavor.
Over here in the streets, and corners, and backroads of New England we pride
ourselves on good, old fashioned donuts (and we have the hips to prove it!).
Sure, Dunkin' is no longer the little establishment it once was (when it
first started out in Quincy, MA), but we still have some of the little
hole-in-the-walls that put Krispy Kreme to shame.
That's why they couldn't make a go of it here - they folded! Think it was
the first of the Kripsy's to fail.
BTW, DD used to actually have some decent coffee yrs ago - still think it
depends on the DD location, too - word around here was, a few yrs back, the
Malden based (that's where I live) old fashioned, New England Coffee did
their roasting for them. Now since I buy SM's beans & homeroast my own, you
can guess my current opinion of THAT coffee (although my kitchen smells
match the aromas outside many a day!).... I do wonder whether they actually
did the roasting for DD back then - don't think it is today.
It would also be interesting to see if there is an increase in coffee
consumption in areas where coffee is roasted... I know I want to drink more!

In St. Louis, I lived practically next door to a very good smallish 
roaster for several years. About 18 months into my tenancy, I couldn't 
figure out why they were roasting at sparrow fart each morning or why I 
could smell it, even with my windows closed. It seemed that whenever I 
woke up, I'd smell roasting coffee.
Fast forward a bit...
I actually had a newly minted seizure disorder, and lucky me, the 
phantom smell associated with it, was, you guessed it, roasting coffee. 
Some people are unfortunate enough to smell rotting fish. Or worse.
I don't know as it made me drink more coffee. I've been an early morning 
pot o' coffee gal for a long, long time.

In this area of the world the best local dognuts are from Daylite Donuts,
sometimes. I have discovered a couple of them that provide enough extra oil
to change out your car oil, but these are few and far between and usually
change hands quickly. I think that the locals offer Cains Coffee as their
stock standard swill (product of OKC).
An up and coming shop is Paradise, but I haven't checked out their coffee.
