So the reason why there are super long queues in Eastwood, Ortigas (Manila) is finally invading Mindanao. J.Co Donuts and Coffee is set to open their first Mindanao, Philippines branch at the Ground Floor of Ayala Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro City on May 10, 2013. J.Co CDO is at the garden area. This means that if you’re thinking of a quick perk-me-upper for Mindanaoan, just send me a dozen Al Capones from J.Co CDO!
J.Co is actually an Indonesian brand but I heard an American company bought a franchise in order to bring the well-loved brand to the Philippines. Very good move, apparently, since I have never been to a J.Co store in Manila that does not have a queue! I often go to their SM Megamall branch. My friends tell me, though, that the horrifying one-hour-and-a-half lines are usually at their Eastwood branch.
Apart from their products, what I also like about J.Co is that you can watch how they prepare the donuts by hand. Yes, you can see how they dip those delicious donuts in gooey chocolate! Yum My all-time favorite is the Al Capone, though. Just imagine white Belgian chocolate mixed with crunchy, toasty almonds on a donut that tastes just right – not too sweet at all. It’s so good I think I can actually finish off a couple of those babies in one sitting. Yikes! I also like the avocado flavored donut. Try it! By the way, you’re encouraged to use a knife and fork when eating your donuts at J.Co
Tip from Mindanaoan.com – best to eat the donuts inside the store. If you need to bring them home or bring them as “pasalubong,” reheat the donuts. Pop them inside the microwave for about 2 minutes and they’re good. I usually reheat them in medium heat.
One dozen J.Co donuts = Php 350.00 but if I’m not mistaken, you get a discount if you buy two dozens Best to try their JCoccino also. It’s their signature drink. Price starts at Php 115.00 (12 oz.)
So who’s excited for the opening of J.Co Donuts Centrio CDO?
J.Co Donuts can also be found in Bali, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Shanghai and Manila.
