If you're an alien. You're don't like coffee & donuts. If you're a diabetic - okay, we can understand your aversion to donuts. But we definately don't understand people who make wild claims of not enjoying the occasional cup of morning elixir and a side of deep fried / baked goodness wrapped in either a piece of bakery or in this case - a donut. Sorry, not sorry - we can't be friends.
The long marriage between Coffee and donuts has yet to make their power entrance to Hong Kong, with thanks to the good people that bring J.CO to Hong Kong, we look forward to starting our early mornings with some smooth brews and sweet delights. Based in Indonesia and already taking Malaysia, Philippines and Singapore by storm, J.CO Donuts & Coffee is now making its Hong Kong debut on Hennessy Road, Wan Chai this mid-December.
J.CO Donuts & Coffee is the brainchild of Johnny Andrean, a reputed beauty salon entrepreneur. Andrean’s exceptional retailer instincts triggered his salon’s rapid growth in Indonesia, and led him to foray into the lifestyle cafe category. Another booming business that commonly saw long lines snaking out of stores, the J.CO chain grew fast. In 2016, the J.CO family has expanded to incorporate more than 250 international outlets, successfully revolutionising the donut & coffee industry in Asia. Now, J.CO has sights set to place in all the hands of Hong Kongers a steaming cup of coffee in one, and a donut in the other.
Made with high-quality ingredients, J.CO signatures include the most-wanted donut Al Capone, a white chocolate ring donut encrusted with toasted almonds, best paired with J.CO’s signature cappuccino Hot Jcoccino; Sugar Ice, a classic mum’s donut sprinkled lightly with icing sugar and best paired with the rich Ice Chocolate drink; and the White Desert with its sweet & creamy kaya filling topped with coconut flakes, best paired with the classic and distinctly-flavoured Iced Thai Tea. There’s even a glitzy, celebrity studded line-up of donuts including Avocado DiCaprio, a delightful combination of avocado and chocolate crunch; a strawberry & cream cheesy Berry Spears that’ll make you bust out in “Hit Me Baby One More Time”; Jackie Chunk, a nutty, chocolate rendition that’ll make you go “Hai-yahh!”; and Blueberrymore, a delicious act by the third Charlie’s Angel with blueberry and cream cheese.
The price for one donut starts from HK$15 for one, 1/2 dozen - HK$88, 1 dozen - HK$148 and HK$98 for 24 mini donuts.
THE COFFEE (J.COFFEE)
Just like the Italians, J.CO doesn’t tolerate bad coffee. Using only the finest 100% Arabica coffee beans that are medium-roasted to perfection, J.CO’s unique blend is full-bodied with low acidity. There’s a coffee drink for every whim and mood, because the J.COFFEE menu spans Italian roasted classics like hot Americano (HK$28/12oz) and Iced Caffe Latte (HK$32/12oz), to more creative and refreshing J.CO originals such as Hot Tiramisu (HK$35/12oz) made with tiramisu, and the Cappuccino Chip Frappe (HK$36/12oz) with chocolate crumbs, and mocha cream.
With the festive season fast approaching, J.CO is arriving to Hong Kong bearing gifts. Every weekend starting from 17th December at 3pm, as part of J.CO’s Christmas celebrations, 100 donuts will be given away for free to lucky customers on a first-come-first-served basis. Happy holidays, indeed!
