Dunkin’ Donuts has a new cold brew to keep you cool even on the hottest of days, because summer is only as good as the beverages you drink with it. As part of its summer menu, Dunkin’ introduced the new Brown Sugar Cream Cold Brew on June 22, so you can indulge your cold brew habit throughout the season. This review of Dunkin’s Brown Sugar Cream Cold Brew will answer any questions you may have about the summer’s newest caffeinated beverage, which features a new cold foam.
By its name, the Brown Sugar Cream Cold Brew would seem to induce a significant sugar rush. The iced beverage is a mellow, slow-steeped cold brew made from 100 percent Arabica coffee, with hints of molasses, brown sugar, and cinnamon from the brown sugar cinnamon-flavored syrup. The cold beverage is also garnished with a brown sugar cold foam and cinnamon sugar to emphasize its velvety smoothness. The holiday-inspired flavors may seem like a wintertime beverage, but trust me, they work all year round.
I tried the new iced coffee and was somewhat surprised by what I discovered. I detected the following flavors in the Brown Sugar Cream Cold Brew: Instantaneously, I spotted cinnamon powder and caught a whiff of its sweet aroma. Not until I removed the lid did the aroma of Arabica coffee become apparent. Initially, I could only taste coffee. It didn’t bother me, but I gave the beverage a good stir to allow the other flavors to shine.
