Okay, so I know everyone typically has their coffee allegiances — specifically, ye olde Starbucks vs. Dunkin' debate — so I thought it would be fun to see if people would actually still prefer their faves...even without knowing which was which.
Well, I'm Syd, and because of all this, I wanted to take this idea a step further and taste-test all the iced coffees from popular chain cafés/restaurants!
With that, I rounded up these nine popular chain iced coffees for the participants to try:
To make sure no one knew which coffee was which, I took each coffee and poured it into an unlabeled cup, numbering the cups 1 through 9.
While we ordered all the coffee black, I did let the participants prepare their coffee however they liked if they wanted to, and supplied the following milk/milk alternatives and sweeteners:
Now here are my coworkers who opted to try the iced coffees, along with their personal coffee preferences in their day-to-day lives. This is Hannah!
Then this is Jon-Michael, and these are his coffee preferences:
This is Tessa:
And lastly, we have Jen!
So without further ado, here are all the iced coffees they rated, how much the little suckers cost, and what they thought.
Iced coffee #1: Starbucks ($4.25 for a large, aka venti).
