Dunkin’ is making changes to its trademark coffee
The company plans to invest $60 million in “smart brewers” at its thousands of locations.
The change will help the company reduce waste and also improve the taste of its coffee, according to the company.
It’s not immediately clear how the taste would change as a result of switching to the new machines, reports NBC.
The company says the new machines will allow locations to expand drip coffee offerings as well as improve efficiency and “crew satisfaction.”
In 2019, Dunkin’ added iced coffee machines to its locations — while a previous upgrade involved its espresso machines.
The newest machines, meanwhile, will allow locations to offer more “consistent” coffee and espresso drinks as well as allow locations to create new recipes.
Dunkin’ sales increased 2% last year to a six year high, CNN reports.
Espresso sales jumped up 40%.
