If you’ve tried to make iced coffee at home, but it just doesn’t taste the same as Dunkin’, you likely aren’t imagining the difference. Of course, it starts with high quality coffee, but there’s more to it than that.
The pour-over method is an efficient approach to coffee brewing, but when done incorrectly, it can lead to a weaker cup of coffee. Since adding freshly-brewed java into a glass will melt ice and dilute the coffee, Dunkin' advises brewing twice the amount of coffee — think three tablespoons for every six ounces of water.
The double brew will result in a bolder, more flavorful iced coffee that is ready in a fraction of the time compared to other cold coffee methods. Customize the iced java by stirring in a splash of cream or dairy alternative, along with a simple syrup, to make it more Dunkin’-style.
