We just love J.Co Donuts; we think it offers one of the best gourmet donuts in Manila. It is best to eat them fresh from the store and best paired with their signature Jcoccino coffee.
If you are still clueless about J.Co donuts, read on to find out more about the J.Co Way...
I was impressed that an Indonesian donut franchise was able to go head to head with the American donut franchises in Manila by combining the best of the West with Asian feel and flavors.
For dine-in, I always recommend eating the donut or donut sandwich of your choice with their signature coffee drinks.
It's best to experience J.Co with a group of friends so that you can order an assorted dozen. That way, you get to try a variety of flavors. :)
If you are planning to give it away, make sure to keep it in 18oC cool temperature first and then just re-heat to enjoy.
★ Al Capone. J.Co's signature product, where white Belgian chocolate meets crunchy Californian almonds! Recipe from Rome, almonds from California, white chocolate from Belgium, whereas the donut is originally created in Indonesia.
This is J.Co's signature donut and our favorite, too! We love the soft, chewy and sticky donut texture and the balance of sweetness with the crunchiness of the almonds.
My second favorite is the ensaymada-looking donut (which is actually a cheese-top donut sandwich). :)
Also, try the honey-glazed donut for simplicity of taste. The creamy vanilla filling is a bit too sweet, though.
I prefer the hot drinks over their Frappe version. :(
Tip: It is best to eat your donut in the resto. The flavors just aren't the same anymore when you take it out.
