My brother, Steve, came to visit last weekend and we were out and about and it was mid-afternoon and time for coffee.  He said “Let’s find a Dunkin’ Donuts – I like their coffee”.  Well, I have to say that was the first time I’ve heard that!

Imagine my surprise today when I learned that “America’s Test Kitchen’s” new radio program addressed this topic.  They describe their preferred coffee vendor as a “Beacon of Light” and one that “maintains quality standards”.  Listen to this program to see which coffee chain they prefer.  Do you agree?  You’ll also learn why some big chains choose to use dark roast — to assure consistent flavor profile as the dark roast hides imperfections.
