Dutch Bros Iced Coffee

  • All Dutch Classic drinks at Dutch Bros are “breve” (made with half & half). They have their own exclusive half & half blend called “Kick Me Mix.”
  • Dutch Classic drinks are made with espresso.
  • Dutch Bros add their own branded chocolate milk to espresso to make mocha drinks, instead of adding chocolate syrup. (The family who founded Dutch Bros owns a dairy farm.)
  • A “soft top” is a sweet, marshmallow-like whipped topping you can add to any iced drink. It’s a sweetened, whipped buttermilk. It’s like a creamier cold foam.
  • All Dutch Bros syrups and sauces are from Torani, which are added to drinks in scoops, not pumps.

Tips for Ordering

  • Drinks come in small (16 ounces), medium (24 ounces), and large (32 ounces).
  • It’s best to order drinks in this order: size, hot/cold/blended, and name of drink. “I’d like a small, iced, Kicker.” or “I’d like a medium, hot, Annihilator.”
  • If you want to make adjustments, you’ll say that just before the drink name. So, size, hot/cold/blended, any adjustments, and name of drink. “I’d like a small, iced, sugar-free, almond milk, Golden Eagle.”
  • If you want your coffee drink to be extra special, ask for it “picture perfect.” They’ll put caramel and dark chocolate drizzle on top of the whipped cream.
  • Unlike baristas at Starbucks, Dutch Bros broistas are trained on secret menu drinks. If you’re not sure what you want, ask them for secret menu drink recommendations!
