For years America has run on Dunkin’, and Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee at Home is bringing that slogan to life in New York City with the Home That Runs on Dunkin’, the tiny home powered by spent coffee grounds.
The Home That Runs on Dunkin’s biofuel was developed by Blue Marble. They created a custom B80 blend using our spent coffee grounds, meaning 80% of the fuel is made from Dunkin’ coffee oil and is then mixed with 20% alcohol to make the fuel burn efficiently.
The Home That Runs on Dunkin’ features a modern, chic aesthetic with custom-designed elements, including a fully-functional kitchen, luxury bedroom, jacuzzi tub and more.
While the Home That Runs on Dunkin’ includes the signature style of Dunkin’ coffee, the Company partnered with coffee enthusiast, actress, director and home design fan, Olivia Wilde, to incorporate her personal style into the home, creating a truly one-of-a-kind look and feel.
“I’m thrilled to be joining forces with Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee at Home, giving me the opportunity to be part of the opening of the Home that Runs on Dunkin’,” said Wilde. “The tiny home is truly unique, from the architectural layout, to the interior design, and the generator is powered by spent coffee grounds. “
“Fans of Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee at Home have always enjoyed the same consistent and delicious taste as the coffee available in local Dunkin’ shops, all from the comfort of home,” said Tina Meyer-Hawkes, Vice President, Coffee Marketing, The J.M. Smucker Company. “We have taken our consumers’ love of at-home indulgence of our coffee to a whole new level with the launch of the Home That Runs on Dunkin’!”
