With over 12,000 branches in 42 countries, Dunkin Donuts is the most popular coffee and donut shop in the world! We have all known and tasted the yummiest donuts, as there is a flavor for each one of us. However, that’s not what we have to talk about today. There’s something new on the market that Dunkin Donuts is bringing back from Summer 2021: the Sunrise Batch.
Sunrise Batch coffee is special and limited time so let’s learn more about why it is different from the regular Dunkin Coffee.
Dunkin Donuts Sunrise Batch Menu
Sunrise Batch Hot Coffee
Sunrise Batch is a limited batch series of Dunkin Donuts that is available for a certain number of months each year. As part of the summer menu, Sunrise Batch Hot Coffee is something you should not miss! The coffee is a medium roast with a tangy sweetness, cocoa, and a taste of roasted nuts.
The best part about this hot brew is the beans. They are imported from Latin America and Kenya, two of the most treasured coffee regions. However, if hot coffee is not something you are looking to start your day this summer, Dunkin Donuts’ Sunrise Batch has more options!
Sunrise Batch Iced Coffee
The fame of Sunrise Batch Hot Coffee was more than enough to spark inspiration in the coffee experts of Dunkin Donuts to make its polar opposite—the Sunrise Batch Iced Coffee! The hot version of this coffee was an instant hit, so the coffee and donut restaurant chain had high hopes for the coffee.
Luckily, they were not disappointed. And neither were their customers! People loved the Sunrise Batch Iced Coffee a lot more than the Hot Coffee. It had the same ingredients: beans from Latin America and Kenya, toasted nuts, and cocoa, yet somehow it tasted better. The texture of Sunrise Batch Iced Coffee is smooth and bright!

Sunrise Batch Cold Brew
If you want to start your day with a rich chocolaty flavor mixed with smooth cold coffee, you must try the Sunrise Batch Cold Brew by Dunkin Donuts! The drink is brewed slowly overnight for at least 12 hours. Dunkin uses 100% Arabica beans to extract their flavor and prepare a cold brew that kickstarts your day with a sweet and bitter flavor.
Since the flavor requires a specific brewing time, Dunking brews it in small batches. So, if you want to taste this amazing drink first thing in the morning, wake up an hour early to get to the nearest Dunkin shop faster!

How Is Dunkin’s Sunrise Batch Cold Brew Different from Its Regular Cold Brew?
The regular cold brew at Dunkin Donuts is not slowly brewed overnight for 12 hours. That should be the biggest difference between Sunrise Batch Cold Brew and Regular Cold Brew. However, that’s not it!
The beans used in the two cold brews are different. Sunrise Batch Cold Brew has the steeped Arabica beans. It offers a rich and smooth flavor of the coffee. Compared to Dunkin’s regular cold brew, it has a nutty finish and a brighter taste.
As for the original blend, Dunkin offers a coffee flavor with a hint of caramel. It’s smooth and lively but not “bright,” like the Sunrise Batch. If you are to pick the Sunrise Batch Cold Brew, you’d be able to pair it with your choice of Dunkin food. Whether it’s the Stuffed Bagel Minis, Avocado Toast, or classic Egg and Cheese, the Sunrise Batch drink will go with anything!
Flavors of Dunkin Donuts Sunrise Batch
The Sunrise Batch hot and iced coffee has unique flavors that will make you pick a new one for each weekday! They are unique and exceptionally amazing flavors, adding a flavorful boost to the Arabica beans used in Sunrise Batch hot and iced coffee. These flavors are:
- Cake Batter Swirl
- Butter Pecan Swirl
- Caramel Swirl
- French Vanilla Swirl
- Mocha Swirl
While these flavors make Sunrise Batch a must for the summer, there’s the Cold Brew, which does not have any exotic flavor. To be honest, it does not need an additional sweet taste anyway. The overnight brew is enough to make Dunkin Donuts Sunrise Batch Cold Brew the perfect summer beverage! The choice is yours—try whichever drink best suits your taste.

Is Dunkin Donuts’ Sunrise Batch Back This Year?
Sunrise Batch had always been a limited series menu item for Dunkin customers. When it was first introduced in 2021, the series replaced the Explorer Batch, which was a fan favorite at the time! Now, Sunrise Batch is the one that gets the most attention. Well, it did when it was available in 2021.
However, Dunkin has brought it back for 2022, and now you can enjoy all the best cold and hot Sunrise Batch brews you want! Don’t forget that it is a limited series item on the menu, so it will probably say goodbye to us before winter comes!
