Espresso is our passion. We perfected a proprietary blend of Colombian, Brazilian and El Salvadoran beans for its rich flavor, full body, and sweet finish. It’s what makes Dutch Bros. coffee special.
We only pull ristretto espresso shots.
A ristretto shot, the traditional Italian-style shot that enjoys a richer, bolder flavor, utilizes a shorter brewing time but the same amount of water as a traditional shot.
We start with double-shots, even in our small drinks. That’s twice the luv you’ll find elsewhere.
Every cup is handcrafted. Our coffee is roasted by hand, blended by hand and then ground and pulled by hand. Every ingredient is measured, every process timed, and every cup perfected. In fact, if your drink isn’t perfect, let us know. We’ll make it again.
It’s true, there is something in the coffee: care, pride, and attention to detail.
Brewing Tips for Enjoying Dutch Bros. Coffee at Home:
There are a few things involved in brewing a good cup of coffee. Don't worry we're not talkin' major science here, just a few simple things you can do to make sure you're getting the most out of your Dutch Bros. beans.
Use Fresh, Cold Water
One of the most important things to check before you brew is your tap water. If your water tastes like chlorine, so will your coffee. You can easily remedy this problem by simply using bottled or filtered water.
Don't Use Paper Filters
We suggest that you get rid of all those paper coffee filters you've been using and start using a permanent filter. The only way to use paper filters without tasting paper in your coffee is to rinse the filters with hot water before each use.
It is also important to use the right amount of coffee. We like to use two tablespoons of grind per six ounces of water, or two ounces per quart, but don't be afraid to experiment.
Use the Correct Grind
If you are using an press pot, an espresso machine, or a drip brew, remember that these machines require a specific grind. As a general rule press pots require a coarser grind, espresso machines require a fine grind, and a drip brew is somewhere in between. Catered to your taste.
Just Brew What You Need
Another important detail about brewing coffee is that it will start to taste bitter after sitting on a burner more then 20 minutes, and reheating it is even worse. It's always best to drink it while it's fresh.
