I can hardly believe I’m writing that the Dutch Bros Golden Eagle is my favorite coffeehouse drink. After all, I didn’t even understand why people loved DB so much until a couple of years ago. Now, I’m all in – from the Golden Eagle to the pup cup. I think DB makes great coffee in a fun, positive environment.
So, what makes the Golden Eagle so special? This post is dedicated to everything about the Golden Eagle, including ingredients, caffeine content, options and more.
Let’s get sippin’!
What Is The Dutch Bros Golden Eagle?
Vanilla and caramel flavors mixed with caramel drizzle, coffee and milk combine to make this dreamy, creamy drink you’ll want to drink over and over again. If you don’t specify milk, they’ll typically use their breve mix – which is basically like half and half – and gives their coffees their super creamy texture.
This drink also comes with a caramel drizzle. 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 vanilla and caramel together – then you will absolutely love the Golden Eagle.
How Much Caffeine is in The Golden Eagle:
While caffeine will vary based on size and amount of coffee, there is approximately 256 mg per 20.00 fl. If you are looking for less caffeine, consider the Golden Eagle Chai, which uses the chai/black tea base. I wrote a whole post about the best chai drinks at DB and the Golden Eagle is one of the best chai drinks I’ve ever had.

My favorite way to order the Golden Eagle is iced, but you can also get the Golden Eagle hot, blended, and with sugar-free syrups for a keto option.

My hubby and I love the iced or hot sugar free golden eagle. We add almond milk because of lactose intolerance issues. So good! And since the other coffee joint has pretty much discontinued their sugar free syrups, except for vanilla, Dutch Bros has become our go to place! Thank goodness there’s one within 10 min of home.
Yes, I do oatmilk now for the same reason! If you haven’t tried oatmilk, I find it is creamier and gives the drinks more of a similar texture and taste than almond milk. The golden eagle is just so, so good. I’m glad you like it!
