Most people prefer to take those drinks which are high in caffeine to fulfill their cravings, and some of us are sensitive to caffeine and want to avoid those drinks that have high caffeine content.

Let’s have a look at the caffeine content of drinks available on the Dutch Bros’s Official menu.

Dutch Bros this category is fabulous as it holds unique and decent taste and flavor for every representative drink. It has 4 different flavors such as:

These cold brews have smooth, soft, foamy, and uniform texture throughout the glass, you can order it as iced or toasted.


If you order any of the nitro-fused drinks then prefer to shake the drink before use because the bubble settles down in the bottom, and shaking will spread them thoroughly in the drink.


The nitro-fused cold brews hold more caffeine than the usual cold brews as they hold 93 mg of caffeine per shot in the can, and a whole can holds 293 mg.

Dutch Bros Americano

An Americano usually holds two shots of espresso, but it can customize for this asking the barista to add less or more.
