I vividly remember the turn of the millennium when Davaoenos gradually grew a love for coffee. No, it wasn’t because of the need to stay awake, nor was it due to cold weather. It was because of one brand that jumpstarted the city’s caffeine craving: BluGre Coffee.
Even during its first few baby steps, BluGre Coffee has established itself as a premier-brand coffee shop. It is even touted as the Starbucks of Davao, with its strong brand marketing and excellent product quality.
Wifey and I only have pleasant memories at BluGre Coffee. The most memorable one was on the night of our wedding. Right after the reception party, we suddenly realized that we were hungry! So, at about 11:30 PM, we took a cab to BluGre Matina Town Square to satisfy our grumbling tummies.
While BluGre puts the Durian Gatchpuccino on their must-try list, our favorite is the classic Mocha. Their ice-blended Larcepuccino Coffee variants have also satisfied our palates quite a number of times. For desserts, nothing — and we mean, NOTHING — beats Banana Cream Pie.
Despite the emergence of more coffee shops in the metro, BluGre will always hold the distinguished title of offering the first great coffee experience in Davao.
As of this writing, BluGre Coffee has three branches in Davao City (Landco Bajada, Matina Town Square, and SM City) and the newest in General Santos City.
