The Story Behind Dunkin’s Sunrise Batch Coffee

The Story Behind Dunkin’s Sunrise Batch Coffee

Dunkin’ coffee lovers – it’s time to rise and shine! In case you missed it, we recently announced the launch of our summer menu at Dunkin’, including the next coffee in our Limited Batch Series, Sunrise Batch! Keep reading for the inside scoop on how our newest hot coffee option came to life.

Here at Dunkin’, we’re thrilled to be continuing our Limited Batch Series, which kicked off with Explorer Batch earlier this year, with a unique new option: Sunrise Batch. Sunrise Batch is a medium roast, full-bodied blend with a bright and smooth taste, and notes of cocoa, tangy sweetness, and toasted nuts. As compared to Dunkin’s Original Blend, which is lively and smooth with notes of caramel, Sunrise Batch tastes brighter and has a nutty finish.  Sunrise Batch is the perfect complement to your go-to Dunkin’ food choice, whether you love Dunkin’s new Avocado Toast, snackable Stuffed Bagel Minis, or a classic Bacon, Egg and Cheese.

The coffee experts on Dunkin’s Research and Development team aim to bring something new to each blend in our Limited Batch Series. The coffee beans featured in this blend come from Latin America and for the first time, Kenya.

“Sunrise Batch is a brighter blend for a brighter day,” said Janet Rock, Manager of Research & Development at Dunkin’. “This brand-new hot coffee blend combines beans from two highly-regarded coffee regions across the globe, which come together in perfect harmony for a smooth and lively coffee experience.”

As a part of Dunkin’s commitment to coffee sustainability, the brand is dedicated to protecting the coffee we source and the coffee farmers we depend on. In the Latin America region where Sunrise Batch beans are harvested, Dunkin’ is allocating $40,000 toward providing coffee suppliers with the Partnership for Gender Equity’s Virtual Learning Journey. This unique online workshop series helps to advance gender equity by providing 10 producer organizations with a better understanding of gendered challenges and opportunities, and identifies areas of opportunity for targeted action plans and solutions.
