I went to all three stores and tasted their coffee.

The coffee at mcdonalds and starbucks tasted the same to me, but the one at dunkin donut tasted different.

I liked the one at dunkin donut best.

At first I thought it was because mcdonalds and starbucks used arabica beans but I checked dunkin donuts and they also used those beans.

What actually is the difference of their ingredients that makes them taste so different, even though they're both coffee?

Haha that's an interesting question. I've noticed how McDonalds and Starbucks coffee taste the same, and Dunkin Donuts is different, and yes, it does taste better. I prefer buying from a good cafe because I find many of the big high steet coffee vendors like the mentioned ones seem to be diluted tastewise due to the sheer number of customers they serve and it seems to compromise the quality of the coffee, in my humble opinion anyway. If I'm stuck needing a quick refill on the go somewhere and one of the big high street vendors like McDonalds or Starbucks is the only available one, I would get one from there, but not out of choice if a good cafe is around that I know of. Maybe it comes down to an industrial filter machine is just not as efficient as a decent well looked after medium sized one cafes have, rather than the type of coffee bean? I don't know lol

I don't drink coffee, but my dad told me McDonald's and Starbucks coffee is much more acidic than DD coffee.

There's a lot more to coffe than where it comes from.

 

The roasting process, storage, the grinding, the temperature of the water used to make it, any additives you put in it - milk, sugar and so on - to name but a few. I drink espresso if it is available and even where two establishments are using the same brand of coffee it can taste quite different.

 I can't drink Dunkin Donuts coffee. It gives me agita. No other coffee does.


To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.

I don't drink coffee outside of home. I think it is enormously overpriced, and I think the surroundings pretentious.

Yes, it's the roasting probably the biggest effect.  Quality of the beans, possible, but if really good gourmet beans, the roast level and freshness of the roast are very important.  Starbucks coffee is burned, no matter high much roast.

I've never had coffee at a fast food place - the town I live in has dozens of cafes, most of which make delicious cofee. My wife's cousin owns a coffee roastery, too.
