Once in awhile I get the chance to meet my girlfriends from the Ad agency I used to work in Makati for a dinner. The night will never be complete without having a cup of coffee, tea and dessert after. Instead of going to our favorite coffee shop, we decided to try the most talked about newly opened J.Co Donuts and Coffee in Greenbelt 3 (The 3rd branch here in the Philippines).  J.Co is originally from Jakarta Indonesia opened in 2005. Since then the craze swept across Asia where they captured the hearts and palates of donut and coffee lovers in Singapore, Malaysia, China and now the Philippines. Aside from gourmet donuts and coffee, they also have frozen yogurts.

We  ordered the assorted dozen so we can try the variety of flavors. Of course we never want to miss their best seller “Alcapone” a J.Co’s signature product. It has white Belgian chocolate and topped with Californian almonds.

Their donuts are soft, chewy and not so sweet. Something that I really look for in a donut. They really taste good with or without coffee. Now I know why people are patiently standing in the queue for almost an hour and keeps on coming back.

And yes, we are one of those who stand in the queue for an hour and a half just to experience their donuts.

 So far, my favorites are: Green Tease, Tiramisu and their signature donut Alcapone.

If you want to bring some at home, make sure to keep it in 18oC cool temperature first and then just re-heat to enjoy!

I can’t wait for the opening of J.Co Donuts branch in Alabang Town Center.   It will be very convenient for me then. 🙂

Check out the prices and the punny names of their donuts below.
