    Even though I could agree with Dunkin Donuts on their opinion, that's all it is. Everybody has different tastes...otherwise Starbucks would never have made it out of Seattle with its old burned nasty coffee taste. Actually, I think it's all the sugar, cream, & caramel that people actually crave from Starbucks!

    Enough nonesence. Best coffee: finely grind beans of your favorite blend. Put two tablespoons in filter. Pour or drip exactly 5 and half onces boiling water. Should be a nice full bodied cup. I favor a french roast, but to each his own. You can make more at one time, but remember 2 tablespoons fine, freshly ground beans for every 5 and half onces of water.

    No, but companies constantly bend words to false advertise and use all sorts of gimmicks and contract clauses, so I don't see why they are legislating advertising all of a sudden. I have seen a million advertisements of companies saying "we're number one in the state/nation/world. I don't understand why our legislative bodies are so selective in their enforcements of law.

    I believe "the best" coffee is acknowledged to be kopi luwak though I haven't tried it and can't testify from personal experiencec. To make that, civet cats eat the coffee beans, then excrete them, then the beans are carefully gathered, cleaned. It's the most expensive coffee in the world, that's for sure! I think it would be better if Dunkin' Donuts did not venture into that field...

    It certainly does not make sense for Dunkin Donuts to claim they are the "best" of anything. McDonalds has better coffee in my opinion. But the "best" coffee I know of is the coffee I brew for myself. Claiming to be the best is not quantifiable unless you are talking about quarterbacks. ;-)

    In other news, Starbucks was allowed to advertise as "the most expensive cup of coffee in America", because there was no denying that fact.

    I really don't like Dunkin' Donuts coffee and I don't eat donuts, if I did it wouldn't be theirs they are too sweet. I'll
    have a Twinkie!(:

    @woodtick57 I haven't had a Twinkie since I was 10, but now that you can't get them, I want one. And , yes,
    Dunkin's are too sugary.. see , you'll even argue about donut's. Geesh!!!

    Sorry, Dunkin', I love coffee and I've tried yours, and you aren't nearly the best.

    Seriously, they can claim it in advertising all they want, but patenting "the best" is ridiculous, because somebody is always going to come up with better sooner or later.

    @Denizen_Kate It's certainly not clear, cogent thinking or reading comprehension.... They were seeking a Trademark, not patent. There is a huge difference. Obtaining a trademark "best coffee in America" would allow them to advertise such without anyone else making the same claim without facing legal action from them....... Many trademarks make similar claims but on a more narrow scope. The Village Voice has a trademark on the phrase "The best of..." They are suing Yelp for use of the same phrase on their phone app defining the location of specific outstanding vendors......... DD was just playing the game, you won't be granted anything unless you ASK.

    As long as people can sue for damages when they determine it is falsely advertising a claim. Trademark or not, a sales pitch can not be an out and out lie. The half truths are bad enough.

    Exactly right about Pilots coffee. Colombian dark roast with some French vanilla creamer. Finishing up a cup right now.

    @NO-BAMA

    I'm looking forward to a cup here soon. I'm just a few miles away from the Pilot in Murfreesboro TN, waiting for my 10 turn over. Sitting here sniffing my empty cup till then, lol.

    Pilot does pretty well with their java. I think it's the cleanliness of their machines. Nothing ruins a good cup of joe faster than bitter oils from yesterday's brew.

    I've watched them make coffee at Dunkin' Donuts, as well as 7-Eleven, my favorite bars, numerous other venues. They all make it pretty much the same way that I do at home with my Mister Coffee (tm).
    I drive around doing my job and I see more signs than I care to count touting "the best" ribs, burgers, chicken wings, etc...... Also, several signs proclaiming, "the coldest beer in town," especially in the summer.
    "The Best," is almost always a baseless claim. Unless you have the trophies and blue ribbons to prove it time and again, and as we read, even that didn't work for Sam Adams.

    @woodtick57
    Do you think an old fashioned percolator is better than today's coffee makers?
    Of course freshly ground is better, if you have the time for all that. I considered a maker with the grinder attached, but the consumer ratings weren't all that hot, and apparently neither was the coffee temperature.

    @Keyjo According to my sources...Google.. PT's Coffee Roasting Co. the 'best' coffee is~ Colombia La Esperanza Ceiro Azul Geisha, and it's just 35.00 for 8 ozs. I don't think I could remember the name, even
    if I wanted to spend that outrageous amount of money.

    @Keyjo I don't live near Topeka...but, I do think the percolators make the best coffee, it's just that you probably
    have to go to an antique store to get one. I don't think they make them anymore. I have a one cup Keurig, it's
    convenient, but the coffee's just okay...better than Dunkin's.
