I was recently invited to attend J.Co Donuts and Coffee’s 44th branch opening at SM Ortigas East (also their 5th year in the Philippines!). With this, J.CO is kicking off their new Affogato series to help us beat the heat in the most delicious way.
A traditional affogato is a scoop of ice cream drowned in a shot of piping hot espresso. It is then either consumed as a mildly cold beverage or eaten like an espresso “soup”.
The innovative minds at J.CO however have built on the Affogato concept and have come up with three different cooler variants to cater to three discerning tastes of their customers. Using beans sourced from the Sumatra and Sulawesi regions in Indonesia, each cup ensures quality, delicious flavor, and intense strength.
Iced Cafe Avocado Affogato
The rich and creamy flavors in the Avocado Affogato blend just as well as they rhyme! J.CO has blended the smooth and creamy taste of avocado with its premium coffee blend and topped it off with a scoop of luscious chocolate ice cream which all come together to form a harmonious combination of distinct flavors.
Iced Jcoccino Affogato
A rich, buttery scoop of milk chocolate ice cream makes this crowd favorite extra creamy. Definitely a must-try for any coffee enthusiast looking to get a quick cooling caffeine fix.
Iced Chocolate Affogato
You can never have too much of a good thing. Case in point: the chocolatey goodness of the Iced Chocolate Affogato, which is a sweet serving of chocolate milk topped with a heaping scoop of chocolate ice cream. Definitely a chocolate lover’s dream realized and made available in a cup.
It was an afternoon of latte art learning, fun games, and food-tasting. We were taught how to do latte art–some of us even had the first-hand experience of doing so! During the event, a couple of J.Co’s Master Baristas taught us the key ingredients and showed us how to make the Affogato drinks, plus which J.Co donuts would complement it the most.
The Affogato series is available in all J.CO branches nationwide including their new lifestyle cafe concept store in SM East Ortigas. Feel at home and melt away your stress and the summer heat on their cozy and inviting furniture. Don’t forget to grab a dozen of J.CO’s signature donuts to go with your Affogato and have a moment of pure bliss!
