Do you like trying new coffees like I do? Do you collect Coffee House Ornaments like I do? Do you like a great American comeback story like I do? Then you have stopped on the right post!
A few months ago while browsing online and researching I came across a Coffee House called Dutch Bros.Coffee. You can’t miss the adorable drive-thru’s adorned with colorful tulips and the signature Dutch Windmill. It makes me wish I lived in the Pacific Northwest because the building alone would brighten up any morning or day, they are so cheery in design.
Let me give you some information on Dutch Bros. because I think you’ll really be pulled into them like I have, after you learn a little about their American Comeback Story as I like to call it.
Before Dutch Bros. Coffee was established in 1992, the Boersma Family had to shut down their 3 Generation Dairy Farm under Government Regulation Pressures and sell all their cows. They say this was a blessing in disguise. Because, Dane & Travis, brothers of Dutch Descent, started experimenting in the barn with coffee and a double head espresso machine. After passing out free sample near a local train station, the feedback was well received in a months time, so they figured they found a future in coffee.
Dutch Bros. Coffee is the USA’s largest privately held drive-thru coffee company with over 270 locations in 7 states and over 5,000 employees. They also give back and donate $2 million a year to local communities and non-profit organizations. That just makes me so happy to hear, I love companies who help others and stand by their communities. Here is a link to there store page for some Holiday Dutch Gear
I love this story and really love buying USA brand products. I just received my Private Reserve Blend K-Cups and have to he honest. It’s some of the best coffee I’ve had in awhile. Right now my coffee choices are Starbucks and Gevalia, but Dutch will be my morning muse til its all finished. Great gift idea for the Coffee Lover in your life who enjoys trying new brands.
I did get in contact with a customer service agent and she confirmed they did release previous year ornaments, but they did not keep a list of them that she could locate, so I was on my own and these are the confirmed ornaments so far.
2013 Dutch Bros. Coffee Cup Ornament
How cute and simple. It appears to be flat plastic and colored in the standard To Go Cup with a gold hanger. Unsure what it sold for in 2013 but if anyone purchased it and recalls the price, please contact me
2015-2016 Dutch Wooden Ornament Box Set
Dutch released ornaments in 2 sets and 1 single, but a total of 6 individual as you’ll see in this list. They are also selling them again this year without change or any additions. I hope they do something new next year and keep up the ornament release tradition. But this set is quite unique and great quality compared to most brands

Dutch sold this as a set online last year and again this year. This is a perfect replica of Dutch Bros. Hot and Cold Cups. 3D full color replicas with authentic details.

Dutch Bros. does release holiday to go cups like most other chains and they are so cute. Maybe if we all email Dutch Bros. we could persuade them to release a Holiday Cup ornament for 2017 🙂
Here is a sample of some past cups and delicious holiday drinks they offer.
Coming up in the next post another NEW brand to the Coffee House Collectibles library
