Donut lovers looking for more options just got one more.
J. Co Donuts and Coffee, just opened its first flagship store in the Philippines last month in SM Megamall. The popular Southeast Asian cafe chain, founded by enterprising businessman Mr. Johnny Andrean, first opened in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2005. This International brand aims to redefine the country’s lifestyle scene with its trademark donut treats and fresh coffee brews combined with their cafe’s warm service and friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
The Indonesian donut store and cafe takes pride in serving freshly made donuts with the use of the best fresh ingredients like, Belgian chocolates, Californian dates, American honey, New Zealand cheese, and Japanese Green matcha tea, sourced from all over the world with the simple goal of bringing you a whole new world of flavorful options to savor the good ol’ donut. Complementing J.Co’s signature donuts are trained baristas, that are on hand to whip you cups after cups of exciting fresh coffee brews.
Products include regular donuts (Php 42 per donut; Php 350 per dozen; Php 550 for two dozens); the cute J. Pops mini-donuts (P250 per order of two dozen J.Pops); and a wide array of hot and cold beverages, and frozen yoghurt.
For your first visit, Chow Buzz highly recommends a taste of their signature ‘Al Capone’ donut, an amazingly light, soft-bite donut topped with White Belgian White Chocolate and slivers of roasted almonds. Plus, a tall glass of their Iced Avocado Cappucino.
J. CO’s future plans include opening branches in SM Mall of Asia, Greenbelt, and Trinoma.
