J.Co Donuts & Coffee: The New Donut Craze in Manila

After Krispy Kreme, another international donut and coffee destination hits Manila. But this time, it isn't from the United States, but from Indonesia. And although you probably have heard and seen this new donut and coffee establishment, it wasn't until last month that I first got to try a treat from J.Co Donuts & Coffee.

JCo Donuts Box

Before July ended, I've already visited J.Co Donuts & Coffee in its newly-opened branch in SM Mall of Asia. However, since I got sick a day after grabbing a box of donuts, I only managed to get a taste of two donut flavors. And to save my throat from demise, I decided to just give this Indonesian donut brand another try after I recover my taste buds.

Although I got better in a week, it wasn't until last Saturday that I finally had the chance to visit J.Co Donuts & Coffee. But this time, in their flagship store at SM Megamall since I was already there to take advantage of the Mega Food Sale. However, I wasn't sure if I already got lucky 'cause I only had to wait over 30 minutes to get to the counter. You see, after I bought my box of donuts, there was a sudden surge of queuing patrons.

JCo Donuts and Coffee SM Megamall

I had a short chat with one of the crew at J.Co Donuts & Coffee, and I found out that the SM Megamall branch is always packed even on weekdays. On peak hours, lines by the counter are always this long, or even worse. And on average, customers should wait about an hour or even two before getting their J.Co Donuts. That's just crazy, right?!

With lines this crazy long, and patrons this crazy over J.Co Donuts, I guess I really had to sample as many donut flavors as I can to try and justify this crazy demand. So without further ado, here are my 2 separate purchases of a Dozen of Donuts (P350).

JCo Donuts Flavors

This first box is what I bought last month from the SM Mall of Asia branch, but I only got to try two flavors since my throat can't take more than that, being sick and all.
  • Alcapone - I personally got to try this J.Co signature donut and I loved it! The donut itself is very soft with smeared white Belgian chocolate frosting and toasted almond slices on top. Aside from tasting sweet and creamy, the crispy almonds were also a delight to munch.
  • Green Tease - I also got to sample this round donut with a generous green tea frosting. Although I liked that J.Co's is truly of a green tea flavor, I found it a little too much for a piece of pastry.
I didn't get to taste the other flavors in this bunch, but my parents and little sister gave this box their stamps of approval. Every donut flavor they had wasn't too sweet for their palates. They all agree that in terms of sweetness, they prefer J.Co over Krispy Kreme.

JCo Donuts Flavor

This second box on the other hand, was from my recent visit to J.Co Donuts & Coffee in SM Megamall. Although I successfully got a hold of the best-selling Alcapone which my parents and aunt loved to bits, I didn't manage to try the other unique flavors like the Mona Pisa and Mango Blitz since they weren't readily available.
  • Why Nut - Next to Alcapone, this is my favorite. Aside from a white chocolate topping over the soft donut, it's also filled with a slightly chunky peanut butter inside making this perfect for peanut butter lovers like me.
  • Mr. Green Tea - Unlike the Green Tease flavor, this donut has just the right amount of matcha green tea for me. Every bite didn't have an overbearing green tea taste, and the crushed nuts atop also added for an interesting crunch.
  • Avocado DiCaprio - Many raved about this, but unfortunately, I wasn't too impressed. The taste might have changed since I ate this the next day after my purchase, but I find the avocado flavor a little lacking. However, I liked the surprise cream filling inside, as well as the chocolate bits around the donut.
I wanted to try the other flavors, but since I'm quite concerned with my weight and figure these past few weeks, I decided not to indulge myself too much. However, here are my family's top picks should you be interested to find out what they liked.
  • Alcapone - It would be a sin not to include this on our top picks. We can actually buy a dozen of just all Alcapone, and I'm dead serious!
  • Jacky Chunk - This is my little sister's pick since she was the only one who got to try this both times. She said the dark chocolate frosting together with the chopped peanut toppings made this donut very enjoyable.
  • Blueberry More - Aside from Alcapone, my mom likes this donut smeared with blueberry jam and adorned with white chocolate bits on the side. It was quite a given though since my mom likes berries.
J.Co Donuts Flavors
As for me, my top picks for now are Alcapone, Why Nut and Mr. Green Tea in this particular order. However, I look forward in trying out the Mona Pisa, Mango Blitz, Copa Banana and Oreology, as well as the coffee offerings at J.Co Donuts & Coffee.

THE VERDICT

After finally getting a taste of J.Co's donuts, I can definitely say that these are my kind of donuts. They got great variety, aren't too sweet, and they also have quirky names that I dig. I also like their pricing strategy of marking every donut at P42 each so customers won't get budget-conscious in trying out certain flavors. However, I'm still not willing to line up for an hour just to get a hold of them. I draw the line at 30 minutes.

Taste - 4/5
Ambiance - 4/5
Service - 3.5/5
Price - 4/5
Overall Value - 4/5

    2. Donuts and coffee is the perfect match. We always get brewed when eating sweet pastries (this includes donuts for me..hehehe) so we can appreciate the taste of the bread.

  4. A J.Co branch is always crowded, which is understandable given the fact that they serve best-tasting donuts.

    1. J.Co in MOA is outside the mall. It's along the side lang of McDonald's :) I didn't find it too the first time I was looking for it, yun pala nandun lang siya katabi ng Yoshinoya if I'm not mistaken.. :D

  9. Unique way of branding! I'm not a fan of krispy kreme, my guess is I will love J.Co donuts! The avocado dicaprio and the matcha really piqued my interest. love the beauty shot!

    ReplyDelete
  10. hmm.. a must-taste for me. i miss our donuts. donuts here are incomparable to ours. long lines? i bet in a few months those will be shorter. We, Filipinos are really always eager to try the latest in the market.

  14. Wow, I didn't know na may ka-kumpentensya na pala ang Kripy Kreme. Their donuts look very attractive and yummy. HIndi rin sya mahal ha. Not bad!

  15. Filipinos are such suckers for fads! :). I'm tempted to think that this is another one of them fads. I don't want to go with the bandwagon, so I just might put off grabbing a bite of this J.Co hype. But I have to admit that those donuts look sinfully yummy!

    1. Give it a try when lines aren't crazily long. I admit, they're donuts are good in terms of flavor and variety.. :) For plain ones though, I'd still give it to Krispy Kreme's original glazed doughnuts ^^

  16. There is this crazy line at the Greenbelt, Makati branch EVERY TIME we go there. And I mean CRAZY. My curiousity couldn't even get the best of me sa haba ng line, nahihiya akong pumasok lang just to see what the fuss is about!

    I'm pretty interested about the Alcapone flavor, too! I've been drawn to flavors with almonds. Usually counters the sweet taste.

    ReplyDelete
  17. i love doughnuts, too. their flavors are quite interesting. must be the reason why the long queues.
    but at 42/pc...i guess, i'll stick to dunkin na lang muna ^_^

  18. Not really a donuts lover but I guess there's not harm in tasting it. :)

  19. We love J.Co donuts, too because they're super soft and not too sweet. My personal favorites are Cheese Me Up and Mona Pisa.

  35. Wow, you had the courage to stand in queue, glad to know it was worth it. I love Why Not's appearance. There is no J. Co branch in my city but if I had to eat with my eyes, I'll pick Why Not. Next would be the blueberry. =)

    ReplyDelete
  36. looks like another big hit in the philippines. i remember another brand (from Sing)opened here in dubai. almost the same concept but didn't last. it's sad because it captured the taste of the filipinos but the store suddenly closed. the variants look yummy...

    ReplyDelete
  37. The doughnut business is really into a very strong competition nowadays. Haven't had the chance to taste all the flavors of all the others who came before and now here comes another.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I feel out of the world. Am i the only one who haven't tried this yet? Anyways, I think i'll love this as much as I love KK since it's not that sweet and lots of choices!! :D

  39. I'm loving J.Co and some of my favorites are Alcapone, Mr. Green Tea, Oreology, Don Mochino, Snow White and Mona Pisa.

  47. Reading your post makes me excite trying the donuts soon. Naalala ko nung October 2012, nagtataka kame baket super haba ng pila sa SM MOA branch, akala namen may free taste LOLS. Di pa ako familiar sa J.CO Donuts nun, so when we got home, sinearch ko and found out na marami pala talagang pumipila para dun.

    When I got a chance to buy, mas maganda talaga maaga-aga haha!
    Your photos = total eye candies!! Gusto ko na sila tikman! HAHAHA!

  64. I've seen a lot of Cebuanos bringing J.Co Donuts pasalubong when they return from the Manila and true enough, I saw the long queue when I was at Manila for a business trip. I am still curious as to how their doughnuts and coffee taste! Hope they'd open a branch here in Cebu! (Or I'll just have to battle the queue when I get back to Manila! XD hahahaha~)

    This blog gave me ideas and tips what to buy once I visit the Jco. Thanks for the information God bless!

  110. I love their donuts too! I think aside from KrispyKreme cravings JCO cravings is now added to my list. Its just really irritating when they have this crazy line all the way to the counter.
    But, JCO donuts are really worth it! Nom nom..

  125. It's worth it if you buy two dozen (two boxes) at the same time. I just found this out recently. Now I know why so may people line up and leave with two boxes most of the time.

  128. I also love Alcapone as well as Heaven Berry. Yeah, the lines are always long but I manage to catch them with not so long lines at those unusual hours--but I'm not hungry then and it's too early to buy a box and lug it around all day haha.

    But yes, everyone who hasn't given it a try should!!! Must!!!

  135. I am still amazed that even after the J.Co MOA Branch opened a year ago, people are still lining up like cray. Their donuts a must try though.. ☺

  136. Alcapone is my favorite.. too bad lage lang mabaha ang pila sa newly opened store in Glorietta.

  137. Just like you, Alcapone and Why Nut are my favorite flavors. The Belgian chocolate is like heaven!! <3 It's really worth the time you fall in line just to get your box of delish donuts! :)

  139. Definitely Love Alcapone and Oreology! I missed eating donuts from J.Co. I always consider buying some dozens again because its my "pangarap" >:)

    ReplyDelete
  140. I haven't tried J.co, Im really curious about the taste of their donuts coz whenever we pass along J.co the lines are very long, siguro nga masarap talaga siya! sana hindi mahaba pila pag napadaan kami :)

    ReplyDelete
  141. the green tease is something to look forward to in this store. i tasted it once and it melted in my mouth.oh gees the sugar rush! hahah. anyway, j.co offers good variety of doughnuts but really i do not understand why their line is always that long. i mean, they should do something about it as it turns off many curious people as well.

    1. I feel you! It was actually okay to have long lines when it first arrived in the Philippines. Pero now, it's been a year na. Medyo OA na! Hahaha!

  150. i dont know if its only me, but I never liked the j.co donuts - i find it too sweet and pag nahanginan na or pag di na freshly baked - ang bilis tumigas , kaya i only got to eat it pag may nagbibigay, I dont buy kasi nga hindi ko sya masyado gusto. But again, that's me!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Parating mahaba ang pila sa J.Co Cubao branch, donuts are good specially Alcapone. :) Pero I prefer Dunkin' pa din.

  153. I really want to try out this but unfortunately it is still not available here in Davao but I've heard it will next year.. All of their doughnuts are tasty and delicious

  154. True, JCO in Mega used to be VERY crowded when they newly-opened. These days naman okay na ang pila! :D

    ReplyDelete
  155. I love J. CO donuts! My nephew loves it too much!

    ReplyDelete
  156. As usual when we got there at their store at megamall, long line was already starting to build up. Luckily we went past ahead of those other buyers and we bought 2 dozen, enough for our big family with big appetite :) i planned to get various flavors hoping to try 'em all, but sadly they quickly run out of doughnuts, so I was a little bit forced to choose and just point whatever flavor is available. Anyway, it was alright, for I still had the best flavor that day, Alcapone :)

  157. Now, I want Jco donuts and i love alcapone. Was happy to try jco pops first before buying my regular sized donuts. I got to taste different flavors and choose my favorite after. :)

  158. how long does the donuts last?
    im planning to buy some for paslubong :)

  159. I love doughnuts in JCo sooo much! esp.Strawberry flavor. super sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  160. I'm an Indonesian living in Jakarta. I can't believe that you need an hour or more to buy it, here in Jakarta even though the store is crowded you never spend more than 3-5 minutes in the line. In fact i never even have to stand in lines, if i spend a long time, that's because of my dilemma to choose the heavenly donuts :)

    By the way, the nearest JCo store from my home has a drive thru. Do you have it back in Manila?

    1. Hi Anon! All J.Co stores in Manila are inside malls, so no drive thru for us. With long and slow-moving lines inside stores, I doubt we'll have a J.Co drive thru soon. XD

  161. Also, with PHP350 (IDR95k) you can get 2 dozens in Jakarta

  163. I remember when we went to MOA a few months ago and I saw a huge amount of people outside J.Co. It really shows how much people loves J.Co donuts! :)
