REVIEW: Four Intriguing Latte & Donut Pairings at Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea Company at the 2020 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts

For every EPCOT festival, each Joffrey’s stand inside EPCOT always goes out of their way to create a brand new drink for the festival. This year for EPCOT’S 2020 International Festival of the Arts, we have latte drinks and doughnuts themed around different art periods and movements. In Canada, we have the Impressionism Pairing; in Showcase Plaza, the Renaissance Pairing; Future World East has the Modern Pairing, and The American Adventure has the Baroque Pairing. We aren’t really sure which art movement is our favorite, so we’ll let the drinks decide.

The coffee is a bit sweet, as you get a lot of the berry flavoring. Our group was divided on this; half loved it, half thought it was just okay, and one thought it tasted liked artificial berry syrup in a watered-down coffee. But the real star of this pairing is the donut.

Everyone in our group thought the donut was excellent. Even as someone who isn’t a regular fan of blueberry anything… the donut was delicious.

Logistically, carrying this around is a challenge, as the donut just sits on the cup. The “timeless” donut tastes just like any glazed donut from any donut shop in America.

That being said, the donut is very well glazed. We liked it, though it can be a bit greasy and cake-y.

The Latte on its own isn’t anything special… but with the addition of the donut IN the latte… it adds another level of flavor making this an overall well-liked treat. There are worse things you can do for breakfast in EPCOT. The only challenge is breaking up the donut and mixing it into the latte, as this kiosk doesn’t have spoons.

*NEW* Modern Pairing: Coconut Iced Latte garnished with a decadent Chocolate Donut and topped with Whipped Cream and Sprinkles (Future World East) – $8.99

We’ll start with this thought: coconut and chocolate is always a good mix.

The glazed donut in this iteration of Joffrey’s coffee-donut creation is soft and moist. When you dunk it, the donut’s texture is nicely complemented by the coconut coffee flavor.

While this isn’t the best of the four beverages, it’s good for a breakfast stop.

*NEW* Baroque Pairing: White Mocha Iced Latte layered with a Red Velvet Donut and Sprinkles (The American Adventure) – $8.99

The Iced White Mocha Coffee was our favorite of the day. It was robust and flavorful.

The donut followed suit with a surprisingly perfect red velvet donut that was glazed just right!

Not too heavy, and not too sweet… this was our favorite Joffrey’s festival pairing yet.
