If you're like me, then you've experienced the unique phenomenon that is Dutch Bros Coffee. It's this little drive-thru coffee stand filled with people who are constantly caffeinating themselves and making your order as complicated as possible.
Then, when they hand it to you through your car window, it's always about 20 degrees too hot for drinking (and yet somehow still delicious).
I mean, what can you expect from a place where there's usually a line wrapped around the building?
A bit about Dutch Bros Coffee

Dutch Bros follows a franchise model with business opportunities available throughout the US, offering "franchise territories" rather than individual stores. In 2000, there were 19 Dutch Bros stores along with 25 independently owned franchises which have been converted into Dutch Bros locations today.
The company produces its own line of energy drinks under the Dutch Bros. name, which it sells to other franchisees and through its own stores.
Dutch Bros' business model is based on the "Pimp My Ride" TV series, in which host Xzibit upgrades vehicles for people who cannot afford one of their choices. Dutch Bros employees are required to upgrade customers' drink orders by adding extra shots or replacing coffee with higher-quality espresso (what they call a "supercharged" beverage).
