For those of you who save money every morning by brewing your own cup of coffee, your selection is about to get wider. Dunkin’ Donuts is making single serving K-Cups for the Keuring brewer. If you’re like me and have one of these, right now you have to use the DD ground coffee in the filter to drink DD coffee. It works, but it’s messy and those single serving cups will come in handy when you’re in a hurry.
The Dunkin’ Donuts K-Cup will go on sale this summer in five flavors including Original Blend, Dunkin’ Decaf, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, and Dunkin’ Dark.
While the single serving cups will probably be expensive, DD typically has coupons. As a consumer reporter, I will let you know the coupons currently buy you a smaller ounce bag of ground coffee than the one DD sells. Every DD store doesn’t take the coupons, so sometimes you have to go with the smaller ounce bag and buy it at the grocery or big box discount store.
The good news — DD does have sales. They had a great offer – buy four bags of ground coffee for $19.99 around the holidays. The smaller ounce bags usually sell for more than $7 in the store, and as I mentioned they’re smaller than the four I bought for $19.99. It was a great deal. I stocked up and will stock up on the K cups once they’re out.
You can also save on K-Cups by ordering them online rather than in the store, although it appears at the beginning DD K-cups will only be available at Dunkin’ Donuts.
While there is a price to pay for this convenience of single serving cups of coffee that brew perfectly every time, it’s much cheaper than buying my cup of Joe at the coffee shop. It’s better to pay a few cents than a few dollars.
