Celebrating its fifth year in the Philippines, J.CO Donuts and Coffee opens its 44th store at the SM East Ortigas and launches the new Affogato series.
When the summer temps start rising, nothing beats the heat like an ice-cold drink. Fortunately, J.CO Donuts and Coffee is offering its new Affogato series to help us beat the heat in a most delicious way.
The launch of the Affogato series was held at J.Co’s lifestyle café concept store in SM East Ortigas. I may say this is my favorite J.Co branch! Compared to other branches, J.CO Donuts and Coffee SM East Ortigas has the most Instagrammable interiors! <3<3<3

What is Affogato?
An affogato (Italian, “drowned”) is a coffee-based dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped or “drowned” with a shot of hot espresso. Some variations also include a shot of amaretto, Bicerin or other liqueur. It is considered one drink, not a combination of coffee and ice cream. – Wikipedia
Using beans sourced from the Sumatra and Sulawesi regions in Indonesia, the Affogato comes with three different cooler variants: Iced Jcoccino Affogato, Iced Chocolate Affogato, and Iced Cafe Avocado Affogato — each cup ensures quality, delicious flavor, and intense strength.
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.
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.
With summer getting hotter and hotter by the day, J.CO’s Affogato series is definitely a Godsend whether you need that refreshing push to get you through work or just want a delicious companion while relaxing.
