Wondering about Dunkin’ decaf coffee? Does Dunkin’ have decaf? I was wondering myself, so I took a trip to the one near me to order a cup and tell you all about it. Here’s what I found out.

The Dunkin’ decaf is the same as the Original coffee. So it’s a medium roast that’s a very easy to drink blend, with all the mainstream coffee flavors you’d expect from a place like Dunkin’. And I don’t mean that as an insult! This coffee is designed to appeal to a wide audience.

It isn’t made for coffee snobs who like weird flavor notes like “apple” and “floral” in a cup of coffee. It’s for people who want coffee that tastes like coffee, damn it.

So if you like the regular Dunkin’ Original coffee, you’ll like the decaf just as much, because it’s designed to taste the same and it does. If you wish it was a decaf version of the Midnight dark coffee, you’re unfortunately out of luck.

This is a good decaf coffee, and I like it better than the McDonald’s decaf, but maybe not as much as the Starbucks decaf. On the other hand, it’s cheaper than Starbucks, which almost balances out my slight taste preference.

Dunkin' Donuts decaf and half decaf coffee options

Here’s something else I found out when doing this research. You can order a Half Decaf coffee too, if you just want less caffeine. So I imagine that if you like the bold flavor, you could probably ask for half Midnight, half decaf and “bold up” the taste with still just half the caffeine.

Here’s a cup next to the stronger Midnight blend, and you can see the difference. But it’s not because the decaf is weak tasting! It’s because the Original blend is regular coffee and the Midnight is a very dark, bold coffee.

Here are some other strange options for your Dunkin’ decaf coffee you might not know about if you don’t use the app. I ordered inside the store, and I had no idea that this was an option until I went into the app to check the pricing after I had left.

For no additional charge as far as I can tell, you can add either a Flavor Shot, which is an unsweetened flavoring, or a Flavor Swirl, which is a sweet and creamy type of flavoring.

Unsweetened flavor shot flavors are: Vanilla, Hazelnut, Toasted Almond, Blueberry, Raspberry and Coconut.

Flavor Swirl flavor options are: Caramel, French Vanilla, Mocha, Butter Pecan and Salted Caramel.
