When we are traveling to Walt Disney World, we know there’s going to be coffee involved…. and lots of it! So when we heard that Joffrey’s, who is the official coffee creators for Walt Disney World and Disneyland was offering up a series of fun Coffee and Donut pairings for the Festival of the Arts, we put it at the very top of our to do list.
Festival of the Arts is in full swing and we are happy to say it is bigger and better than ever. We just love watching this new festival grow every year. From artwork to entertainment to artfully crafted foods, this festival is really starting to shine and topping the list as many people’s favorite festival at Epcot.
Ok, but enough about that and back to the matter at hand. Joffrey’s Coffee Crawl at the Festival of the Arts. Is that what it’s called? Not sure, but that’s what we are calling it, because why not, right?
The Coffee Crawl at the Festival of the Arts consists of four stops. You can do this in any order, and it will really just depend on where you enter the World Showcase from. We had just gotten off the Skyliner, so we came through the International Gateway to start our coffee crawl. You can do it all in one day, or spread it out over time, but any way you brew it(see what we did there-yep, that’s right), it’s a fun little challenge and we’d love to know which ones you guys loved!
Festival of The Arts Coffee Crawl
This is the first time we’ve seen a coffee crawl like this from Joffrey’s during the Festival of the Arts before and we are hoping that they continue on with this type of fun themed food series. If they do, we will be sure to keep testing and reporting back here and as always, you can always follow us on Instagram for these kinds of fun reviews too!
Joffrey’s Coffee Future World East
Joffrey’s in Future World East Can be found near Mission Space and Mouse Gear in Epcot. For the Festival of the Arts, they offering the Modern Pairing. This consists of Coconut Iced Latte topped with a chocolate donut with whipped cream and sprinkles.
This one was just ok for us. The coconut flavor was a little too strong for us and the donut was a little bit dry. On Instagram, we rated this as our least favorite, but if you loved this one, we’d love to hear about it.
Joffrey’s Coffee Showcase Plaza
Joffrey’s at Showcase Plaza, which is located near the entrance of World Showcase has the Renaissance Pairing. The Renaissance Pairing includes an Iced Mocha Latte served with a Glazed donut. We loved the iced Mocha in this pairing, but were a little disappointed it was a cake donut and not a yeast or risen donut.
It’s a small thing to pick at, but when you’re trying to rate coffee and donut pairings, it’s things like this that will make you or break you. Obviously I’m kidding, but I mean… maybe I’m not.
Joffrey’s Coffee The American Adventure
Joffrey’s in The American Adventure offers the Baroque Pairing. This pairing offers an Iced White Mocha Latte topped with a red velvet donut.
We sometimes get nervous when it comes to White Mocha because a lot of times it’s too sweet, but Joffrey’s did a great job here balancing out the coffee flavor with white mocha. Not too sweet and well it was kinda perfect. The red velvet donut was delicious and a perfect pairing to the coffee.
Joffrey’s Coffee Canada
The Impressionism Pairing from Canada is a Blackberry Iced Latte topped with a Blueberry Donut. This one was a little tough to rate because the coffee tasted a bit more like Blackberry Tea, which is not necessarily a bad thing if you like Blackberry Tea; but could be if you’re really looking for that Coffee taste. The donut was one of our favorites of the bunch and if you like blueberry donuts, we think you’ll like this one.
Ranking the Joffrey’s Coffee Crawl
Ok, so the moment we know you’ve all been waiting for, how did these rank? Well we will tell you!
Our favorite pairing was the Baroque Pairing from The American Adventure. This seemed to be pretty much across the board when we talked about it on Instagram and we really thought the pairing was just a hit.
In second place, we would have to pick the Renaissance Pairing from Showcase Plaza. Although we were a little disappointed in the donut, it’s really just a matter of preference and the coffee was by far our second favorite.
We think the Impressionism Pairing from Canada deserves third place, even if the coffee did fall a little flat. The flavors weren’t necessarily bad, just not what we had expected. And the donut was good enough to carry this one though.
And that would leave the Modern Pairing in last place for us. The coconut flavor was just too strong, and almost so much that we didn’t even finish drinking it. The chocolate donut was also somewhat of a disappointment, and ultimately the combination was just our least favorite.
Keep in mind, as with all things, consistency is always a factor when it comes to anything at Walt Disney World, so it’s very possible that you could try any of these and have completely different experiences than we did! And hey if you love a certain flavor maybe more than we do, don’t let us sway your opinion to try them!
Joffrey’s Coffee Crawl Considerations
Each pairing will cost you $8.99 and there is a discount for Annual Passholders as well as DVC members.
Joffrey’s offers Almond Milk as a dairy free alternative, and that will add another COST to your total.
We hope you guys have enjoyed this post! And if you make it out to the Festival of Arts this year, we’d love to know if you guys tried any of these and which are your favorites!
