Dunkin' Donuts claims to have the "best coffee in America," but the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office disagrees. Dunkin' Donuts' petition to trademark the phrase "best coffee in America" has been rejected by the agency.

The Massachusetts-based coffee chain's slogan was not "distinctive enough to qualify for protection" and is "merely laudatory and descriptive," the agency ruled recently, according to the Boston Globe. Translation: Everyone claims to have the best coffee in America, Dunkin' Donuts, so get in line.

    I prefer what we make here. My favorite coffee shop ever was Coffee Plantation. I don't even know if those exist anymore. They sure don't out here. However, we DID finally get a Dunkin' Donut shop!!!! Yayyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not by a long shot. Especially not in recent years, which IMO have seen their quality go way down.

    As much as I hate to say it, I've grown accustomed to Starbucks. Plus, DD coffee only tastes good with cream and sugar. I like my coffee like I like my women...

    ... ground up in a bag and thrown into the back of a truck by a Colombian.

    DD coffee ? it is more accurate to call it brown swill...
    it is a bout as close to coffee taste as mcdonalds swill is ,,, not even close to coffee taste.

    Actually it has one of the highest acid content of a lot of the coffees out there. The worst is Starbucks with the highest acid content of all the commercial coffees

    maybe 2nd, or 3rd ? Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, IF near, taste great (#1). Their coffee kiosk closed years ago in my area. Their "coffee beans" are sold by many stores now. Green Mountain coffee store

    And they sure don't have the best donuts either, they use to make their donuts on the Dunkin Donuts store site, now they are shipped din by their factory and they taste horrible.

    Their coffe is seriously average! I had it for the first time a few months ago and I really wasn't impressed.

    But you were impressed. It was just a bad impression.
    (edit) Or maybe just not a good impression.

    Continental U.S., Yes. But THE best coffee I ever had was at a little mom-n-pop shop on the Hawaiian island of Kona. Who'd a thunk.

    I do, because I make it quadruple strength, and grind fresh every morning, and don't let it stand on heat, ever, these are the keys!
