For more than 60 years, Dunkin' Donuts has lived by the mantra, "Freshly ground, freshly brewed, freshly served," so it should come as no surprise that readers voted the popular chain as having the best coffee in the region.
There are more than 30 Dunkin' Donuts locations in Northwest Indiana, and several more in the south suburbs of Chicago, said Kathy Nowicki, senior marketing manager-Midwest for Dunkin' Brands. Although the coffee shop offers a wide variety of drinks, the best selling coffee product is regular coffee - which is based on the same recipe used when the chain was founded in 1950.
"We always grind our coffee just before brewing, and our beans are ground to a precise level to match our coffee brewers," Nowicki said. "Also, we grind our coffee fresh every 18 minutes. It's quite simple - at Dunkin' Donuts, we are all about serving the best cup of coffee any way our customers enjoy it."
