There seems to be a loyalty among coffee drinkers, so where do you prefer to get yours?

I cold brew at home. Better coffee for cheaper.

There's a local place I LOVE, and I think it's better than any of the national chains. Their coffee is phenomenal and their donuts/pastries are out of this world! Plus I get to support a local business. We have both the other chains here, but they hardly get any business. lol

I brew my own coffee, but if I am out and want some, I typically go to Starbucks. We don't have Dunkin' Donuts around here. I know Starbucks is really expensive, but it's really the only place in my area that doesn't have crappy coffee. Also, it tends to be quieter if I decide to sit and stay a while. Even though I've heard that McDonald's coffee has gotten better, I hate going in there, because the place is always jam packed with rowdy, noisy children.

I refuse to pay $4 or more for a cup of coffee, especially an espresso-based cup of coffee.

Depends on the mood I'm in. I don't like dunkin donuts for their actual doughnuts so I usually don't go there to get coffee.

I don't drink coffee but I sure do like donuts so I'd probably pick dunkin donuts over starbucks

Dunkins makes me feel sick after I drink it. Starbucks tastes *ok*, but for the money I'd expect better. Most gas stations around here have better coffee than either. My espresso machine kicks all their asses 8 days a week!

I brew at home mostly unless its the winter season, then I head on over to Starbucks and get a Peppermint white mocha..hot..mmm, I only drink them during the winter so it's like a yearly treat

We don't have a Dunkin Donuts in Canada so I voted for Starbucks. I like Tim Hortons coffee better though.

I like Dunkin Donuts better because I could get 5 coffees for the price of one at Starbucks. When I lived in Boston, I survived off of French vanilla with extra cream and extra sugar. (I didn't really like coffee!)

Now though, I actually prefer a local chain of gas stations called Sheetz. They've got made to order food and all that. Tons of coffee drinks (and a toasted marshmallow milkshake that is to die for).

If its cold coffee starbucks. I dont like dunkin because it always seems really burnt and watery. Same with Mcdonalds.
Usually I just make it from home or a small place because everything is made than and not premade.

Our espresso maker cost more than our mortgage payment and utilities for a month. My husband would have my head if I bought coffee at either of those places!

caffeine causes the body to store fat. you should avoid drinking coffee and sodas to avoid having cellulite

starbucks is way too expensive to drink more then once or twice a month. We make ours at home.

I make it at home - too expensive to go out and drink coffee every morning. Also, we never had Dunkin Donuts in my area when I grew up, so I've never really been there much.

I am addicted to Starbucks. I don't go out and buy it everyday, but I brew their beans at home.

I normally just make my own at home since its waaaaay cheaper. Dunkin Donuts and Timmy Hos are my favorites. For some reason everything Starbucks serves tastes burnt, even their hot chocolate so I stay away from there haha.

Java City coffee. It isn't a chain, but a lot of coffee shops around here use it. Their Mayan Mocha is amazing.

I don't go out for coffee often, but I like going to Peet's or a shop by my house called the Roasted Coffee Bean. Out of convenience I will go to Starbucks since they're everywhere.

Mostly at home, Dunkin Donuts when out. I like Starbucks but the price is steep. All the MCD's around here have any size coffee for .99....

When it comes to coffee, I don't have a preference. The hot chocolate, however, is not a game to me! I LOVE Dunkin' hot chocolate much more than Starbucks'. Tes, I know the Starbucks one is "richer" and it's definitely very good, but the Dunkin' one is just better to me.

My bggest complaint is that they don't sell it packaged so I can have it at home.

Oh, I miss living by a Sheetz!

I'm totally a Starbucks addict, but I usually just get plain brewed coffee there. I don't get the super sweet espresso drinks very often.
