Free is always better and since we'll readily admit we're only a half-step down from installing a permanent caffeine IV, free coffee really gets us going.
Saturday, September 8, the newest Dutch Bros. Coffee will celebrate its grand opening by giving away free 16 oz. coffees, freezes, smoothies and Blue Rebel energy drinks from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. The ninth location in the Valley, located in Mesa near Greenfield and Southern, hopes to entice customers old and new with their specialty coffees and trademark cheerful service.
Also in celebration of the new location, all Valley Dutch Bros. will offer $3 6-ounce hot, iced and frozen doubles, smoothies and Dutch Bros. Blue Rebel energy drinks.
J.D. Power and Associates recently recognized Dutch Bros. with a ranking on their "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Specialty Coffee Retailers" in their 2012 Specialty Coffee Retailer Satisfaction Report. But in all fairness if we were bored and hyped-up on coffee and stuck in a small room, we'd be pretty friendly, too.
At 1,7000 square feet the new location looks to uphold the "core values of the cheerful Dutch Bros. culture: service, quality and speed." Two more Dutch Bros. locations are also expected to open before the end of the year.
Which we're choosing to read as, "More free coffee."
