It wasn't just the coffee jolting customers at Dutch Bros. on Tuesday. The price may have roused consumers as well.
In a gesture of customer appreciation, all drinks of all sizes were $2.
And the discount is expected to continue this month, said Dave Beamer, owner of the franchise at 630 S. Ninth Ave.
Two-dollar Tuesdays will run through October.

A contest by Wilcox Furniture shed some light on who owns the most unsightly lamp in town.
Michelle Montgomery won the Stateline furniture store's ugly lamp contest with a pale-pink satin swag lamp complete with glass beads, gold rickrack trim and gold medallions.
It was one of 25 entries for last week's contest. Other illuminating monstrosities included a 36-inch bust of a cowboy with hat and stogie; a mint-green retro spiked lamp with a red bulb; and a round, plastic bubble-beaded unit with a brass angel base.
As the winner, Montgomery's prize is a pair of lamps valued at about $300 from the store at 85332 Highway 11.
Participants also received a 20 percent discount off the purchase of furniture during the duration of the five-day contest.
Store Manager Janice Holden said staff members "had a great time with the event, teasing customers about their treasures and helping them re-select new lamps and furnishings."
