What is the best cup of "drive thru coffee" ? I rank them here.

Updated on June 12, 2015

The best cup on the road is...

Let's face it, Americans love their coffee!

Drive thru coffee has taken this nation by storm. Some of it is good and some is awful! Some of course, is in between. Whether its flavored, black or loaded with cream or sweeteners, drive thru coffee is here to stay.

Coffee shops can't be beat, but many of the fast food giants are trying their best to do just that. Now, my list is about normal coffee, and not mochas and hot cocoa, or tea. However, if you want to tell me what the best in those categories are below, as well as comment on a traditional coffee, please do,

I rank the best ones for your next commute or road trip. Below, I also state what foods they offer that compliments the coffee that they serve and what items on their menu that ruin that hot mourning Joe that you love!

There are so many beans to choose from!

First, let's do the worst.

Let's face it, McDonald's coffee is down right awful! How can anyone defend what comes out of their pots? I would never do anything that crazy! I like the health menu and many of their sandwiches. Yes, I even like some of the Mc Cafe beverages, but as far as getting a normal cup of coffee goes, no thank you!

What has gotten better?

Burger King- They also had lousy coffee at one time. They have gotten better so I can give them an honorable mention.

Here they are. Let the trashing of my blog begin!

5. Dairy Queen- Their dessert are what keeps the crowds coming, but the cup of coffee there is good also!

4. Tim Horton's- There food may leave Dunkin Doughnuts' food in the dust but Dunkin still has better coffee. Tim's is good though, and some of their hot beverages like hot cocoa, are awesome!

3. Starbuck's- They are a very popular American favorite. but isn't their coffee a bit overated? I think it is if you factor in the cost. I also came close to leaving them off because of their anti veteran stances! I may still do so.

And now for a big shocker, here is number two.

2. Dunkin Doughnuts- Dunkin has been so hard to beat and no one seemed able to come close! Well, not until now, that is. Dunkin has always made their money off of the coffee. The reason why, is they own their own coffee plant and can directly control what kind of product they serve.

And the best at this time is...

Here it is. All of you Dunkin lovers around the world can hate me, but I call it like it is on my blog. That is how I see my job as a freelance writer.

Here is the current champion.

1. Taco Bell- YES, I know that this is a big shock to many of you. Maybe even to Taco Bell. However, their coffee is excellent as long as you have it with a dessert, breakfast there, or something that is not spicy. The full and rich flavor can get lost if you have it with a burrito.

This is too well of a kept secret! No one know about how great their coffee is.

Their Cinnibon Brand Coffee is excellent as well. Enjoy!

      Thank you Larry and E.A.! MacDaonald's is cheap and that is why Con. Rep. likes them.

      I agree with McDonald's having awful coffee. It takes more sugar and creamer than usual for me to drink their stuff.

      Very entertaining. I'll have to give Taco Bell coffee a try.

      Ok, which taste test was that?

      I guess it's all a matter of taste. I like McDonalds (and it won a blind taste test a few years ago) but I despise Starbucks. The worst coffee is brewed by Cracker Barrel, which is why we no longer eat there. It's weak and watery, probably because they're trying to save a buck.
