They will be donating $1.00 to St. Vincent de Paul, Portland Council for every cup of coffee sold . Saint Vincent de Paul received a super sweet Valentine’s Day surprise last year from Dutch Bros Coffee when they donated $531 from sales to us.  Founded in Oregon and headquartered in Grants Pass, Dutch Bros Coffee franchises are locally owned and operated, so owners have a personal investment in the communities they serve and contribute to various local causes and organizations.

They are open from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm on Tuesdays. You know you need coffee! !dutchbros_headerLogovalentine heart
