Blugré Coffee | Home of the Durian Coffee
One of the premier coffee shops in Davao City has landed here in town. Blugré Coffee had their grand opening over 2 months ago here in Iligan City and I know this is such a late post but I'm writing it anyway. So as far as I know, Blugré has been in business since 1998 and its claim to fame is their signature Durian Coffeccino. I've tried it, and spoiler alert: it's good.
Blugré Coffee Iligan City Interior
Let's start talking about their interior. The moment you go through their doors, you'll be greeted by a cozy ambiance with low but bright enough lighting that almost every other coffee shops have. The interior has a rustic vibe that will make you just want to chill and hang out with your friends.

They have an elaborate menu with different kinds of coffee and non-coffee blends. They also serve hot and cold beverages along with savory dishes and a number of desserts.

Their menu prices are not that cheap but they make sure that the quality of their food will make up for it. Simply said, their food is worth the price or at least some of them are.

Who wants to take home their mugs? They're beautiful, right? I think so, too. 😊

Together with the coffee shop's grand opening, a blogger's forum was held and I was one of the lucky few who were invited to attend. We were introduced to the company and where it has originated from. We were also introduced to their best sellers and their house specialties.

Food was abundant that day and I had myself filled to the brim. 😂 Their Penne Tuna Pesto Cream was my favorite. Other dishes were good too, especially this Halo-Halo cake, one of their newest desserts on the menu. I also loved their Durian Cheesecake!

Blugré Coffee Blogger's Forum
The blogger's forum was fun as I got to meet new friends and eat good food. It's a really great opportunity for me to be invited to events like these. If you are in town and in need of caffeine and a cozy vibe to relax and talk to friends, I recommend you to try out this café!

Blugré Coffee is located at Solana District, Andres Bonifacio Hi-way, Iligan City.
