Know Your J.CO Donuts (Manila, Philippines)
J.CO Chocolate Caviar Donut

J.CO Chocolate Caviar Donut

You might have heard the foodie news – J.CO coffee and donuts have landed in the Philippines! Their first stop was SM Megamall in Manila which just opened last March 15, 2012 while I was in South Korea. This will be followed soon with branches in Greenbelt 3, Trinoma, and SM Mall of Asia.

By the end of the year, the Philippine’s master franchiser is opening up 10 branches, with a target of 20 by the end of 2013 and 30 by 2014.

J.CO is a popular lifestyle café chain in Indonesia and some parts of  Southeast Asia. It first opened in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2005 with the thrust to fuse the popular donuts of the West with the exotic touches of the East. Other countries in the Asian region soon got into the J.CO craze, including Malaysia, Singapore and, more recently, Shanghai in China.

It is just right then to follow through this news with an inspection of what this Indonesian-grown donut and coffee brand has to offer.

On focus in this write-up is their main product – the J.CO donuts.

They use a wide array of ingredients sourced from around the world like Belgian chocolates, Californian almonds, American honey, New Zealand cheese, and Japanese Matcha green tea.

Let us look at some of them and their best-sellers.

Moreover, the makers of J.CO donuts seem to have a penchant for Hollywood celebrity names as well…from Jacky Chan’s to Leonardo Di Caprio’s. 🙂 Check these out:

This cheesy donut is rich with cheddar and cream cheese, among others.


All the J.Co donuts are at a uniform price of P42 (except J.Club Cheesy Rich which is P45) to enable the customers to try all of them without being too concious of the price. A not-so-common pricing strategy if you ask me. 🙂

All the J.CO donuts also has a mini-doughnuts counterpart called J.Pops. It’s a good way of being able to taste-test a variety of donuts before actually making your choice of with the big ones!

  3. cavid says:

    Why is that some of their front liners need to be trained at Cavite for 1 month, then will work at SM Megamall? If there something bad happens to their employee, will they pay for it? Even life?

  4. Honey Laine Khen Bayang says:

    The taste is delicious but the staff should improve their system in getting orders.

    II went to your newly-opened outlet in Promenade Greenhills. I made it a point to be there at 10am, the usual opening time, however, i was asked to come back at 12 nn. The male supervisor also didnt want to get reservations. Talk about consideration and good customer service to our community! Store hours should have been pasted on the door!!! Being uon soft opening is certainly not an excuse! FRUSTRATING!!!

  9. john says:

    Kailan kaya mag kakaroon ng outlet sa Ormoc?

  10. Ed says:
