Topic: ((Wince)) Recommend a good bean for "Dunkin Donuts" (23 lines)

OK, I also am with Sean and Mike.  If you have experience about DD, 
that is one thing, but don't just assume they are doing the charbucks 
clone thing.  Some years ago there was a thread about coffee to have 
when you are out and about and just CAN"T have homeroast.  The top of 
the list was DD.  I don't know if it is the case now, but then, they 
usually roasted City to City+, actually KNEW when the beans were 
roasted and had a policy to not use coffee over X (I think 14 days) 
old.   All admirable things.
That all said, at the time, their coffee was pretty mild and 
sweet.  General consensus (maybe with data to back it up) was that it 
was a Brazil base which goes hand in hand with the mild and 
sweet.  Currently it is the only option, but the Brazil Coromandel - 
Fazenda Sao Joao looks like a good pick.
