If you live anywhere near Blue Diamond, you’ve noticed a new “coffee king” in town. Dutch Bros Coffee drive-thrus have recently been popping up around Las Vegas with its newest location near Blue Diamond and Decatur.
Are locals excited?
This bright blue coffee hut that started in Oregon in the early ’90s has cars lining up around the shopping complex (no location in Las Vegas is currently exempt from those lines!) to get their hands on these sweet, caffeinated cups of happiness.
Let’s answer the question you’ve all been wondering, is Dutch Bros vegan-friendly?
Not only can you order a coffee with non-dairy options such as soy, almond or coconut milk, you can also add vegan-friendly flavors.
How do you know what is vegan?
That’s where things get tricky. The posted Dutch Bros Coffee menu listed outside the window is very minimal. Luckily, our Bro-rista (yup, that’s what they’re called) was also vegan and gave us the rundown.
Lattes, Americanos and Cold Brews are fine with non-dairy milk. Stay away from the Freezes and the Rebels. If you prefer a blended drink, ask for a Carburetor — a blended frozen drink minus the premade Freeze mix (which includes dairy) — instead.
Being new to the world of Dutch Bros, we asked our Bro-rista to suggest a few tasty options. We tried the Nitro cold brew with dark chocolate and coconut milk, as well as an iced soy latte with chocolate macadamia nut.
We reached out to Dutch Bros Coffee to confirm our findings and they sent over a list of all of the non-vegan items (so, steer clear of the following add-ins when creating your deliciousness):
- Dutch Chocolate blend
- Kick Me (half & half)
- Whip cream
- Caramel sauce
- White chocolate sauce
- Pumpkin sauce (seasonal)
- Hazelnut syrup
- English Toffee syrup
- Brown sugar cinnamon syrup
Please confirm your options with your Bro-rista when ordering.
