5 Best Iced Coffee Drinks at Dutch Bros. Coffee!

I’ll be honest, I didn’t always understand the wide-eyed fervor of Dutch Bros. aficionados. The way they would drive far out of the way – past several Starbucks, Peet’s and other perfectly good coffeehouses – to wait in line for 45 minutes for a coffee?

I mean, I clearly love coffee – but was it really that much better?

So, then I moved and ended up a short driving distance from a Dutch Bros. and decided to see for myself. I tried to order something I might get at Starbucks. As much as I loved the super friendly service and upbeat environment, the coffee wasn’t my favorite.

But, I didn’t give up. I had to figure out why people loved it so much.

And then – it happened.

I found my coffee at Dutch Bros. and it changed everything.

Now, I, too, am one of those aficionados that goes out of my way for that sweet, sweet Golden Eagle.

So, that’s why today I am breaking down the 5 best iced coffee drinks at Dutch Bros. – for those of you who just haven’t found your drink.

Maybe one of these is yours.

1. Golden Eagle:

Starting off with a bang with my all-time favorite drink at DB. This vanilla, caramel, creamy coffee is smooth, sweet and super delicious.

This also comes with a caramel drizzle and sometimes I ask for no drizzle or light drizzle, because depending on the barista, they can get really heavy-handed with that drizzle.

If you really like caramel drizzle – then you will absolutely love the Golden Eagle.

2. Annihilator with Soft Top:

The DB soft top is pure magic. It’s like a hybrid of cold foam and marshmallow and totally amazing. I love the annihilator iced coffee. It’s a big fan favorite at DB and you’ll understand why at first sip. They use a lighter roast for a really smooth iced coffee flavor and add in chocolate macadamia nut flavors for a combo that is unique and delicious.

The soft top is a little extra, but totes worth it. Get the soft top. Thank me later.

3. Vanilla Bean Latte:

If you like less frou-frou drinks that are a little bit more coffee than sweet, you will love the vanilla bean latte. There is definitely more of a vanilla flavor with this than typical vanilla lattes, which I love – because I am a huge vanilla fan.

I pick this one when I am wanting something more straightforward, super caffeinated, and delicious.

4. Caramelizer:

This DB classic is a caramel mocha. The Dutch Bros. mochas are made with chocolate milk, which is just friggin brilliant and gives their mochas a smoother, softer flavor that is really consistent. If you’ve ever gotten a mocha at a coffeehouse that was a little too little or too much on the added chocolate – you get my point here.

The caramel mocha also adds caramel for a blend that has a little bit of a Milky Way flavor to it.

You can add whip or a soft top to this one, too, for a drink you’ll go back for again and again.

5. Keto Golden Eagle:

Looking for a healthier option? You can get a TON of syrups sugar-free at DB, but since I’m partial to the Golden Eagle, I decided to go keto Golden Eagle and it’s good!

This one has the following ingredients in a size small:

  • Cold Brew Coffee
  • 1 oz. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 oz. Sugar-Free Vanilla Syrup
  • 1 oz. Sugar-Free Caramel Syrup

I will tell you that it has that typical fake sugar aftertaste, which I don’t love, but the flavor profile and texture is much better than other keto coffee drinks I’ve tried.

Also, if you want to learn more about the sugar-free syrups at Dutch Bros – with which ones are actually Keto and which ones are NOT – you’ve got to check out this post.

Of course, I’m still perfecting my own keto coffee drink at home using monkfruit. Stay tuned.

      YES! I love that you tried them and they were a HIT! They are still my total go-to drinks at DB. I am going to try their fall drinks as soon as they are out and write another post with the best fall drinks (although both of those drinks you liked are available hot as well). Thanks for reading!
