Dutch Bros announced that it will sell extra-caffeinated, nitrogen-infused cold brew coffee in cans beginning Friday.

The 11.5-ounce cans will be available at all locations, according to the Grants Pass, Ore., coffee company. Dutch Bros says that the canned coffee is “amped up with more caffeine than a typical quad shot of espresso.”

The uber-caffeinated coffee is due to the cold brew process, in which coffee is steeped with cold water over a long period of time, instead of a hot water steep, which dilutes the caffeine content in espresso, according to a company press release.

The coffee beans come from Brazil, Colombia and El Salvador. Nitrogen infusion creates a creamier and richer cold brew, the company submits, because nitrogen does not easily dissolve in water.

There are more than 280 Dutch Bros locations, including outlets in Davis, Sacramento, Citrus Heights, Carmichael, Elk Grove, Roseville, Woodland and Fair Oaks.
