Dunkin. But I buy it in the store and make it myself. I don't buy coffee at the coffee shops. Too $$$. Plus, they make it a little too strong for me. I drink mine black and without any froo froo, the Starbucks stuff kills my stomach straight from the shop!
A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.
I don't drink either one though I do love Starbucks' hot chocolate beverages. Best one right now is the salted caramel. I've had both companies' version of iced coffee and neither was impressive for the price.
DD French Crullers are the best commercial doughnuts on the planet. The coffee is good, too, but it's the crullers that used to lead me to route myself through the Philly airport where they were available and I'd buy all they had left, after they were no longer being sold in NC. (After a gap of 7-8 years, they started turning up again here.)
If I knew what I were doing, why would I take lessons?

I try and limit it to once a week but I do love Starbucks although I always say I want the biggest non-fat sugar free vanilla latte and they chirps back "OH, a venti skinny latte!!!???" which makes me cringe LOL!!

No Dunkin' Donuts in California, but it wasn't bad when I was on the East Coast and it was the only/closest option. Usually, however, it's Peet's Coffee or Starbucks depending on where I am, or a few different smaller coffee roasters (Blue Bottle, Sightglass, Verve in the SF area, and places like Stumptown and Joe and La Colombe in NYC...) I love good coffee, so I'm always trying new independent roasters out to see what I like.
well, In my town there are no Starbucks, and no DD. but there is nothing in my town. However, in the three nearest towns I go to for everything, there are about 25 Starbucks. I have a registered card there so I get lots of perks, free refills etc. So I'm a Starbucks Nut all the way!!!!
I don't think I have seen a DD since I moved to CA. and I have never had their coffee.
The place I where most often purchase coffee drinks is . . . McDonald's. I prefer their sugar free vanilla iced coffee to any cold coffee drink I've had at Starbucks and it is definitely cheaper ($2.29 for a large in my area). For hot coffee, there's a gas station up the street that brews Seattle's Best and that suits me fine. :-)
I really dislike both of them. I've always hated Starbucks' coffee, and about three years ago Dunkin did something awful to theirs and it's terrible now. The Massachusetts McDonald's serve Newman's Own Organic and it is excellent - and ONE DOLLAR for any size.

I LOVED Dunkin Donuts when I drank coffee. I was totally shocked that they weren't in California when I lived out there! Now the DD is still too far away and I don't drink coffee anymore either. Starbucks makes me ill from the first sip but their kids hot chocolate is AWESOME.
FYI there was a law passed recently that makes it LEGAL to brew coffee at home.... No need to expend greenhouse gasses driving to a DD or SB every day..... I hear the grocery stores are even thinking of selling flavored creamers to go with coffee now that it is legal to brew it in your own kitchen.... And you can get a single serve French Press at Marshalls or for about, or less than, $10 or Amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/Coffee-Presses...F8&node=289749 will deliver one to your door. Instructions for operating the french press can be found here....http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...YCcT24eny99-wQ
