I recently discovered a new shortcut that takes me right by a Dunkin’ Donuts, and ever since I saw Ben Affleck’s publicity stunt of working the drive-thru window, I’ve been craving Dunkin’ coffee a lot more lately.
Still, if you're like me and usually frequent other coffee chains, you may be unfamiliar with DD coffee cup sizes, which can be very awkward when you're trying to order your cup of coffee on the run.
No worries: I did the research for you. Read on for Dunkin' cup sizes explained.
What Are The Cup Sizes At Dunkin’ Donuts?
An important thing to know is that Dunkin' coffee shops offer cup sizes that differ between hot and cold drinks.
The Dunkin' hot coffee sizes are smaller than the Dunkin' cold drink sizes.
Small, medium, large, and extra large are available for hot drinks. Only small, medium, and large Dunkin cold cups sizes are offered for cold beverages.
This is because they recently changed from polystyrene foam cups to a double-walled paper cup, which is more environmentally friendly. Thanks, Dunkin!

Dunkin' Donuts Vs Starbucks—Who’s Is Bigger?
For Medium and Large-sized drinks, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks offer the same amount of coffee per size.
Starbucks has different names for their coffee cup sizes, and they also have one more option (the 8-ounce short size) than Dunkin’ Donuts does.
Dunkin’ offers cold drinks up to a Large size, but their medium cold drink is the same size as Starbucks’ Venti iced (24oz), and Dunkin’s large cold drink is the same size as Starbucks’ extra large cup size Trenta iced (32oz).
I find it a bit confusing, so your best bet is to focus on the volume of ounces rather than comparing one size to another.
To make it easy, here is a list of what your options are based on the volume in ounces:
- 8 oz: Starbucks Short
- 10 oz: Dunkin’ Small Hot
- 12 oz: Starbucks Tall
- 16 oz: Dunkin’ Small Cold or Medium Hot / Starbucks Grande
- 20 oz: Dunkin’ Large Hot / Starbucks Venti Hot
- 24 oz: Dunkin’ Extra Large Hot or Medium Cold / Starbucks Venti Cold
- 32 oz: Dunkin’ Large Cold / Starbucks Trenti Cold
