Flavors of Davao: Bluegre Coffee, Davao's Best

Since 1998, Bluegre Coffee has been at the forefront of Davao's unique coffee culture, with their own distinct signature blends. In fact, if you want a taste of Davao in a cup, Bluegre Coffee is the place. Where else can you find a unique durian blended cappuccino, only at Bluegre coffee. 

You read it right. Durian Coffee. Bluegre Coffee's claim to fame is its unique Durian Cappuccino, called the Durian Gatchpuccino, giving Bluegre Coffee a unique homegrown vibe and local flavor. And a distinct taste of Davao.

Inside Bluegre Coffee's busy Matina branch, one finds an eclectic mix of Davao's coffee crowd, from hip young teeners tapping away at  their iPads to business types with their smartphones, and sophisticated cosmopolitan types with the latest designer bags. It's a diverse crowd with a common passion for coffee. And Bluegre Coffee is leading the way in Davao's emerging coffee culture.

Bluegre's signature Durian Gatchpuccino, a hot cappuccino espresso blend with Davao's King of Fruits, the Durian. Dubbed as Davao's own king of coffee, the Durian Gatchpuccino is definitely not your usual cappuccino. The sweet nutty custard like flavor seem to work well with a strong espresso, giving it a surprisingly fragrant aroma. I have yet to really like the fresh fruit, with its indescribable aroma, but this I can have all day. There's only two things with Durian, you either love it or hate it. As for Bluegre Coffee's Durian Gatchpuccino, I can go for a second cup. And a third. It's just amazing how durian can be enjoyable in different forms, at least for me personally, than the fresh fruit. And the coffee blend is yet another must-try when you visit Davao.

Bluegre Coffee also offers a variety of desserts and pastries to go with their line of coffee beverages. Bluegre Coffee's Cheese Roll Bites, cheesy bite-sized treats that pairs well with Bluegre's signature blends, including the Durian Gatchpuccino.

Durian de Leche Cheesecake, another exotic blend with durian that also works well. I'd really be surprised if Bluegre Coffee didn't have a durian-based dessert, and this is another unique dish that can be used to slowly break-in first-timers like myself to try durian. Perfect with a Durian Gatchpuccino too. 

Choco Torte with Cream Sauce, a rich and decadent dessert for certified chocoholics like myself. And yes, also great with a durian cappuccino.

Different. Unique. Definitely a distinct taste of Davao in a cup. Now with five branches in Davao, and future expansion programs covering Visayas and Luzon, it won't be long before you see a Bluegre Coffee store near you.

Special thanks Benjamin M. Cuaresma, Vice President for Franchising, and his team at Bluegre for a unique and distinct taste of Davao in a cup.

Bluegre Coffee is located at Matina Town Square, McArthur Higheay, Davao City. Visit their website at for more information and locations of other branches.
