I'm just a little bit of a coffee snob.  Yes, when I first wake up, I love coffee in ALMOST all forms.  But, once I'm awake, a get a little more picky about my coffee choices.

Which is why I am really excited about Dunkin's new line of espresso drinks.

They're using new state of the art espresso equipment for optimal espresso bean extraction.

What is espresso?  It's a coffee drink made by forcing nearly boiling water through a small amount of FINELY ground coffee beans.  It DOES have more caffeine than regular coffee, but since it is a much smaller amount, an order of espresso has less caffeine than a normal cup of coffee.

Espresso becomes the base for Dunkin' beverages like:

Latte

The creamiest espresso drink.  Two-thirds of the drink is steamed milk, poured over a shot of espresso and topped with a layer of milk foam.

 

Cappuccino

A cappuccino is foamy and smooth. It is a classic choice for espresso drinkers made up of a shot of espresso topped with steamed milk and a thick layer of milk foam,

 

Macchiato

A handcrafted, layered macchiato is a rich and bold choice. A layer of steamed milk is topped with two shots of espresso, and finished with a thin layer of milk foam.

 

Americano

It combines two shots of espresso with water for a rich and espresso-forward drink.

 

Now through December 30th, you can enjoy a medium-sized Dunkin’ latte or cappuccino for $2 from 2pm-6pm

Have you tried them yet?  What did you think?
