Event: J.CO Launches their all new premium Affogato Series at the new concept store SM East Ortigas

J.CO Coffee and Donuts newest concept store locates at SM East Artigas Branch

Hello Sweeties!

My kids and I have always been fans of J.CO Donuts and Coffee, when it first opened I would brave the long cue after work just to bring home 2 dozen boxes of my Jarod’s favorite Al Capone.

Summers are long and hot. My kids were getting very bored, and were looking for new snacks. Fortunately, J.CO Donuts is offering its new Affogato series to help beat the heat and boredom  in the most delectable way possible.

For the curious,  the affogato is an Italian coffee based dessert, a traditional adffogato usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped or “drowned” with a shot of hot espresso.

Team J.CO built on the  Affogato concept and came up with three different cooler variants to cater to three discerning taste of their fans. Using beans sourced from the Sumatra and Sulawesi regions in Indonesia, each cup ensures quality, delicious flavor, and intense strength.

I braved the traffic of Ortigas extension to attend the launch of the premium Affogato Series at J.CO’s newest concept store.

They used to be located at near the Mayamot-Lilac area but due to the road construction and other issues they decided to move shop to the spanking new building around October 2016.  Ghella’s Kitchen is a collaboration between mother-daughter team Mommy Leni and Angela, the place was named after her.

Mommy Leni is the magician in the kitchen, she lived and worked in Brunei Darussalam for more than 30 years and has decided to bring to the Philippines the unique cuisine she has come to love.  Angela used to be a banker but wanted a change of pace, she is handles the business aspect and social media part of Ghella’s Kitchen.

I am pretty much a newbie when in comes to trying out Malaysian Cuisine. Although I have been trying out a great many restaurants the past few years this is the first time I actually tried anything Malaysian. Mental note to go to ASEAN specialty places so I don’t feel like a noob.
