Delicious Davao: Blugre Coffee

When I asked friends about the must-try foodie places in Davao, Blugre Coffee topped the list.

Blugre Coffee, best known for its durian coffee, is one of the pioneer coffee shops in Davao City. It currently has three branches in Davao City and one franchise branch in General Santos City, owned by Manny Pacquiao. :)

Aside from coffee and desserts, Blugre also offers breakfast meals, pasta and panini.






I was quite impressed with the interiors of the place. One could mistake Blugre as an international chain. Believe me, I even had to ask the barista if Blugre's really a local brand. They proudly use Philippine Arabica coffee beans from Mindanao.




We tried their durian-flavored treats: Durian Gatchpuccino (Php 155, doppio) and Durian Larcepuccino (Php 145, solo)

Durian Gatchpuccino is Blugre's signature coffee, popularly known as "the durian coffee". The durian flavor strongly blends with the coffee that it took me a few sips before I got used to the taste. The Durian Larcepuccino, which is the frappe version, has a milder durian flavor. I liked the Durian Larcepuccino better while my friend liked the Durian Gatchpuccino more so I recommend that you try both drinks when you visit Blugre. :)

We also had Banana Streusel (Php 65) and Durian de Leche Cheesecake (Php 110).

The durian craze doesn't stop at the coffees, they also have a Durian de Leche Cheesecake. I'm a cheesecake addict and this cheesecake is really good. The durian taste blends well with cream cheese. I'd love to have this again. No worries if you find durian too strong for you as Blugre offers other treats like Banana Streusel (Php 65).

A trip to Davao wouldn't be complete without a visit to Blugre Coffee. We almost got lost going to their Bajada branch (thanks to Foursquare, we found it!), but the long walk was worth it. I would like to thank the Blugre staff for being so friendly and accommodating, they even helped us on how to go back to the dormitory.

Good news: Blugre will be opening branches in Metro Manila and other parts of the world soon.

But while we're waiting, try to visit Davao and experience the durian-flavored treats they offer. :)
