If you’re not sure which cold brew or nitro cold brew to get at Dutch Bros, try one from this list of their 16 most popular.
Dutch Bros Cold Brew and Nitro Infused Cold Brew
Cold brew is coffee that has been steeped in cold water for several hours, giving it a smooth and sweet taste. Cold brew at Dutch Bros isn’t made daily at their stores like Starbucks, instead they’re served from pre-packaged cans.
Nitro infused cold brew is cold brewed coffee that has been infused with nitro. The addition of nitrogen creates tiny, uniform bubbles in the coffee, like beer from tap, making the drink smooth and creamy. Nitro cold brew is also sent to Dutch Bros in cans and aren’t made on site, like Starbucks.
Dutch Bros cold brew and nitro cold brew can be ordered hot (“Toasted”) or iced, but most cold brews and nitros are ordered iced.
Cold brews and nitro cold brews at Dutch Bros are made from a blend of their private-reserve coffee beans from Brazil, Colombia, and El Salvador which are roasted in Oregon.
Both cold brew and nitro cold brew have more caffeine than a drink made with espresso. A medium size Dutch Bros breve has 191 mg of caffeine, while the same size cold brew has 240 mg and a nitro has 293 mg.
Tips on Ordering Cold Brew or Nitro
Iced and Blended Cold brews come in all sizes
An iced or Blended cold brew comes in small (16 ounces), medium (24 ounces), and large (32 ounces), while a Toasted (hot) cold brew can be ordered as small (12 ounces), medium (16 ounces), or large (24 ounces).
Nitros come in medium size only
Nitros are made with a can of nitro cold brew that is only available in one size. Iced nitros can be ordered in medium (24 ounces), and Toasted or Blended Nitros are only available in large (32 ounces).
Get it iced, Toasted, or Blended
Blended Dutch Bros is a coffee drink mixed in their blender to give it a consistency like a Starbucks Frappuccino. Toasted is a hot version of their cold brew or nitro.
Customize your drinks
There are a lot of flavor combinations of cold brews and nitros from the standard menu and secret menu, and Dutch Bros welcomes customers to customize syrup and sauces to create their own flavor combinations.
Make it sugar free
Except for the Blended, which uses a Freeze base to get that Frappuccino consistency and already has sugar in it, iced and Toasted cold brews and nitros can be made sugar free. Some popular sugar-free syrups are caramel, white chocolate, vanilla, Irish cream, and coconut.
Drinks can be made with any kind of milk
Cold brews and nitros come with their signature half & half but can be replaced with any kind of milk. The most popular request is with “a splash of cream,” which is half & half.
Top it with a Soft Top
Ordering your iced cold brew or nitro with a Soft Top is a creamy way to make the drink a little more special with every sip.
Make it extra caffeinated with espresso
Although cold brews and nitros have a lot of caffeine already, you can add shots of espresso to your drink. A 9-1-1 Cold Brew already has 2 extra dub shots (4 regular shots) of espresso to the can of cold brew. An “extra dub shot” is 2 extra shots of espresso.
