The Hat Logic - Starting My Day RIGHT with Dunkin’ Donuts

As a college student, let me tell you…getting up for that 8am class after being up all night, just isn’t fun anymore! In the morning, all I wanna do is get up on my time, eat a nice breakfast, and grab a cup of coffee to get me started and ready to take on the world! Well, most times, I only get one of those, but I make sure that it’s my coffee! I’m probably like most people when I say how important coffee is to my daily routine. As the seasons turn, I’m not drinking my typical piping hot drink, but I’ve started to ice it down! This morning I’m going to share how I’m dressing up my favorite coffee grounds from Dunkin’ Donuts® and making it my own!

The Hat Logic - Starting My Day RIGHT with Dunkin’ Donuts

I’ve always been a Dunkin’ Donuts coffee kinda girl when I make my own coffee. I bought a french press when I got to college (best decision ever, let me tell you), so when I’m getting dressed in the morning, I can make myself a nice cup of Joe for the go! I can find my French Vanilla blend most places, but I love going to shop at Publix because they constantly have it in stock and with a deal to match! Right now, you can get $1.00 off any of your favorite Dunkin’ Donuts blends with this coupon which expires 5/6 and lasts while supplies last! I hope you caught that rhyme, but if you didn’t it’s alright. When I have a little more extra me time, I love to make my special honey and French Vanilla coffee for the go!

The Hat Logic - Starting My Day RIGHT with Dunkin’ Donuts

  1. The first thing I do is obviously make my coffee! Using my french press, I go through all of the motions of making coffee, and these special Dunkin’ Donuts grounds are infused with French Vanilla, so that’s one step to skip!
  2. While my coffee is brewing, I take my honey and line a mason jar with it! It’s a simple way to spice up your coffee and make it a little more sweet, but without ruining your teeth or your health! Honey is a natural sugar, so try it and you won’t realize what you’ve been missing out on!
  3. Right before I add my coffee, I go to the kitchen and grab ice cubes. Once the honey is on the walls of the jar, I add in my ice cubes and the coffee. This cools down the coffee immediately and although it can get a little diluted, it’s great to have a cool drink for those hot days!
  4. Give it a little mix and spin so some of the honey comes off of the walls and infuses into the coffee, but you’re ready for your drink!! Add ice cubes and creamer to your heart’s desire as needed!

Well now that I’ve shared my recipe, wanna know why I always go back to Dunkin’ over the millions of other brands of coffee grounds? The grounds and taste are exactly the same whether I’m in store or at home and with a quality that good, I can’t resist splurging! I love being able to start my day with something that I truly love, and before I start my day, grabbing a cup of coffee is a great way to get some me time before I go out into the world!

    I have never tried Dunkin Donuts coffee before! I hear so many raves about it and can’t believe I haven’t taken the time to try it out myself. One thing I have tried; however, is honey in my coffee and it is just heaven. It’s way better to me than sugar!

    I am so glad you shared this. I get up really early so I can go exercise before I go to school and start my day so I have to have a cup of coffee. I never thought of using honey as a sweetener and especially doing it the way you did. Great post. Will try tomorrow.

    I still haven’t tried Dunkin Donuts… I hear their coffee is so good and I’ve gotten some as souvenirs for my friends in Japan but always forget to get some for myself haha. Now I really need to try it!

    Consistency is key when enjoying your favorite beverage. I also love the idea of lining the jar with honey. I might try that. And I love that you keep it classy with a simple mason jar.

    Mmmmm you’re making me crave DD coffee! It’s so good! I wish I had a Publix nearby to use that coupon though. We don’t have any in VA 🙁 Hopefully someday they’ll open one here!

    I love it when brands offer the same products they sell in their stores to actually buy with you and make the same delicious coffee at home, just as Dunkin Donuts does. I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but basically all of my friends are, so I should have some of these in stock for when they come over (instead of that instant coffee they always complain about, haha). Thanks for the tip dear!

    Looks absolutely delicious! I love making coffee with a French press. It’s so perfect when you are in a hurry. I never would have thought of adding honey to my coffee. I’ll have to give that a try as well as the Dunkin Donuts coffee grounds! There used to be a Dunkin Donuts a few blocks away from my childhood home and I always feel nostalgic about that brand.

      Honey is the perfect sugar substitute in my opinion!! It’s great in keeping sugars down, but also super tasty!!

      I am the same way!! Coffee is my lifeline! If I didn’t have it every morning, I’d be a mad woman!

    Oh nice, I have never tried Dunkin Donuts Before but it looks great and I have to give it a try.

    Okay so I;m like attempting to be “healthy”, but this tempted me to go get some Dunkin Donuts. Mmmmm. Hahaha. I love having some great coffee in the morning too because that’s literally the only thing that gets me through the day.
