Dunkin’ Brands launches its first single-origin coffee

Limited-time Colombian Packaged Coffee also is Rainforest Alliance Certified

Dunkin Single Origin coffeeIn celebration of National Coffee Month in August, Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin’ Brands introduced its new Colombian Packaged Coffee under the Dunkin’ Donuts brand name. The new release marks the brand’s first-ever single-origin and Rainforest Alliance Certified packaged coffee.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ Colombian Packaged Coffee is a medium-roast coffee with a full-bodied flavor and sweet finish, the company says. It also is registered by the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia, which ensures the coffee is produced to the highest standards. In addition, the 8-ounce bags carry the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal, which certifies that the coffee contains 30 percent coffee beans sourced from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms. Rainforest Alliance certification helps to protect wildlife; safeguard soils and waterways; and improve quality of life for workers, their families and local communities in order to achieve long-term sustainability. This marks the second time Dunkin’ Donuts has introduced a Rainforest Alliance Certified limited-time product this year.

“Colombian coffee is one of the most popular varieties in the world, and we are thrilled to expand our coffee portfolio with new Colombian packaged coffee featuring beans sourced from a single place of origin from Rainforest Alliance Certified farms,” said Jeff Miller, Dunkin’ Brands’ executive chef and vice president of culinary innovation, in a statement.

Dunkin’ Donuts’ Colombian Packaged Coffee is available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide for a limited time, while supplies last.
