Dutch Bros Cup Sizes: How to Choose the Perfect One

The perfect serving size of every food item is essential, if we want to make our life journey healthy. An increase or decrease in serving size means the calorie count will also be affected greatly. As the serving size is very important for every food item means, it’s also necessary to keep this in mind while ordering coffee, lemonade, rebel, or any sort of drink.

As the needs of drinks vary at different times, means we consume more if we are thirsty and we consume less if we just want to give a touch to our cravings. Dutch Bros assist their customers in overcoming this problem while providing different cup and glass sizes so that the customer can choose according to their requirements.

Without exaggerating the extra things let’s directly talk about the available cup sizes at Dutch Bros.

Do You Know

A person should always choose a serving size that can’t manipulate their per-day calorie intake. The calorie intake is different for males and females per day:
Male: 2500
Female: 2000

Why it is Important to Choose an Exact Cup Size For You?

There are various benefits to choosing an exact size of the cup for you like:

Portion Control

If we use the appropriate size of the cup it means we are controlling our portion, which means we will consume a fine required amount of drink or coffee, it will prevent you from overthinking about your under or over-drinking.


There must be different glass sizes for adults and kids, as a child can not hold a large size cup as an adult can, so the right size of the cup gives you the benefit of easy handling.

Best Point

The right size of the cup also provides safety from any spill, as you give the right size to your kid that fits his hand accurately, so there is a very minimum chance of spillage.


An appropriate size of cup is very necessary to maintain the desired temperature of the drink. For instance, if you want a cup that helps your hot drink to retain its temperature for a little longer then prefer a short serving size, on the other side go for the large size for cold drinks, as their large size provides an extra surface for ice.


You are fascinated by this that how could a cup’s size can impact the taste but it really does, as you can consider an example of a wide opening glass filled with wine, this enhances the interaction between oxygen and wine that eventually enhance the aroma and flavor.


Large glass has wider openings than smaller glass.


The exact size of the cup is also very necessary to make your drink more presentable, such as if your glass is larger but your drink quantity is less, which means the top of the glass remains empty which ultimately leads to bad presentation.

This means a good fit space for a drink is necessary to make it attractive, this thing gives me recall of famous quote which is:

Quote: A person always looks beautiful in a good-fit dress, because it raises his confidence

There is no such disadvantage only the bit high calories, everything else is quite fine, in fact, people mostly order this size for their drinks. In other words, we can say that people consider this cup size as a standard size or an ideal size for their drink.

This fact is based on entirely my observation may be your experience might differ.

My Perception

I am still on my point that the small cup sizes are the best, but it doesn’t means that I am against the medium size. No doubt, the calories get increase, but occasionally this cup is no less than a blessing. For those who want their drink huge so they can enjoy and savor each sip of the drink, these factors prove the medium size is fantastic.

  • The large size of the drink means the chance of wastage increases.
  • A large cup is also full of calories and sugar which may cause diabetes.
  • When we are taking anything out of need it will be dangerous to our health.
  • If we are using a large cup of tea, it is absolutely dangerous to our stomach and causes heartburn.

My Perception: For me, there is a “Big No” for large cup sizes not only for Dutch Bros instead for other restaurants as well. Consumption of this much sugar, carbs, and caffeine cause-disturbance to our body system. This leads to some serious consequences like diabetes, blood pressure, insomnia, anxiety, dehydration, and many others. As you can see all of the consequences are quite dangerous, but if you have a friend with which you can share your drink then a large cup is perfectly fine……. instead a Jackpot.

Kid Cups

We normally go with our family, so it doesn’t make sense that we will not take our kids with us. As Dutch Bros provide Kid Section in their menu same as they have special cup sizes for the kids which is designed according to the kid’s perspectives. 

Dutch bros offer different healthy drinks for kids which are high in milk, low in sugar and calories, and serve in 8 ounce of cups.


Kid’s drinks are available both as hot and cold, so ask your kids first about their preferences and then select one for them.

These kids’ cups are so smaller even than the adult’s small size cups means your kid is consuming something in a healthy amount, the best point is you have to pay half for the small drink.

Advantages & Disadvantages

I don’t think so there would be any disadvantage to the kid’s cup size, and the all factor listed above is no doubt the advantages. The best-memorizing point is you have a chance to buy a healthier drink for your kid.

Reusable Cups

Dutch Bros also provide some reusable cups to overcome the environmental pollution which is due to disposable cups.


Do not dispose of any cup near a beachy area, river, or lake because this sort of paper material floats over the water and blocks the sun’s rays to enter the water, also enough oxygen can’t dissolve into the oxygen. In this way, aquatic life suffers greatly.

Reusable tumblers, cups, bottles, and mugs are available at Dutch, these all are durable because they are made of high-quality plastic, ceramic, or stainless steel.

Fun Fact: Reusable cups are available with savage slogans, fun patterns, bright color designs, or simply with a Dutch Bros Logo.
