Dunkin’ still serves some of the best coffee around, especially their cold brew. Don’t fight me on that. And if you’re lucky enough to find yourself at a location that serves Nitro, you must try it!
Dunkin’ serving sizes are a bit tricky, so allow me to explain.
These caffeine amounts are all based on ordering a medium drink (except espresso, which is just a lil baby cup). But remember, a medium drink is a completely different size for hot and cold beverages (since cold drinks need ice). Generally speaking, you’ll get around the same amount of liquid, but a medium for hot drinks is 14oz, while a medium for cold drinks is 24oz.
Life hack: Order your drink with light ice to get even more bang for your buck. Or if you’re going straight home, get no ice and then add your own!
When you order a Nitro Cold Brew, you’ll only be able to get it as a small. While that may feel like you’re getting ripped off, it’s because Nitro is made to be served without ice, so it’s super concentrated. No matter how much you fight it, they’re not allowed to serve you a larger size. They don’t list the exact caffeine amount for Nitro, but estimate that a small has about the same amount of caffeine as a medium cold brew.
The iced coffee caffeine content is also listed as higher than cold brew, which may be surprising to you. A Dunkin spokesperson has said that the cold brew they list is just an estimate because each batch depends on a variety of factors. In all likelihood, you’re getting a bit more caffeine than listed!
