Over the years, I’ve gotten used to referring to coffee sizes as ‘Tall’, ‘Grande’, and ‘Venti’. 

However, the first time I went to Dunkin’ I was humbly advised that they do things differently there. 

I want to make sure no one else orders the wrong size or gets confused, so I’m going to share everything about the cup sizes at Dunkin’! 

Let’s jump right in! 

  • Dunkin has Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large drink sizes
  • Dunkin’s cold drinks only go up to Large
  • The sizes are the same as most other popular coffee chains, in ounces. 
  • Dunkin’s drink sizes recently changed, with their switch from polystyrene to paper cups

Dunkin' Donuts Vs Starbucks—Who’s Is Bigger?

For Medium and Large drinks, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are the same size.

Starbucks has different names for their coffee cup sizes, and 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-sized Trenta iced (32oz).

It was a bit tricky for me at first, as I’m more accustomed to Starbucks sizes and names.

Here is a list of the drink sizes to make it easier:

  • 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 Trenta Cold

  1. Hi Susan! Thank you for your comment. That is very interesting! I’ll be sure to check that out next time I stop by Dunkin’.

  2. The Dunkin’ extra large hot coffee is 21 ounces to the top inside line of the cup (very very full)—not the 24 ounces they claim. I measured it today January 9, 2024 because I discovered a very deep empty well built into the outside bottom of the cup. That just made me sad. Check it out.
