A photo taken by customer Lisa Mackay showed Affleck with a coffee order in his hand (clearly taking his new job seriously), and she told NBC10 Boston he was "incredibly funny and quick-witted."
\u201cHow cool is this! Ben Affleck was seen handing out coffee this morning at a Boston-area Dunkin Donuts.\n\n\u201cHe was just as funny and quick witted as I expected,\u201d Lisa Mackay, who snapped this picture, tells me.\n\nCrews appeared to be filming something at this Medford location.\u201d
Mackay also detailed her unexpected A-list encounter to Entertainment Tonight, telling the outlet: "He took my order and I handed him a $10 and he threw it right back at me and handed me my iced coffee.
"He was super nice, very funny, and handsome, of course. I didn't see J.Lo, but I heard she was inside.”

Affleck has proven to be a big Dunkin' fan over the years.
His character Chuckie in 1997's Good Will Huntingpicked up a coffee for Will (Matt Damon), from the Massachusetts business - with the story taking place in Boston after all.
And during an interview with Collider in 2019, he admitted: "I have Dunkin' Donuts every day [...] and people are always like, 'Where is that? Is that near here?' So, I feel like I'm spreading the word."
A photo of the actor from 2021 struggling to lift a large Dunkin' order in his hands produced some meme-worthy material.
Sounds like the perfect celebrity collaboration to us.
