As soon as I looked at it, I knew I’d regret it.
And I was right.
I was in Chatswood at 6am one frosty morning and there weren’t many doughnut options to be had. I rarely get to Chatswood, so I had to find something.
The Cofi House, located right near the train station, had a few doughnut choices – ones with Nutella, some with jam and some with chocolate icing.
Notice how Cofi House spells ‘coffee’. Very urban.
The doughnuts with chocolate icing gave the game away first off. The icing looked very hard and the doughnut looked over-cooked. Was I doing the right thing?
I bit the bullet and went for a jam-filled doughnut and coffee.
My coffee wasn’t hot enough and the sugar wasn’t stirred through. We’re off to a bad start.
From the first bite of the doughnut, I knew I was right. This is the sort of doughnut that gives doughnuts a bad name.
Over-cooked. Somewhat stale. Awful jam filling.
Feelings of regret set in.
I fear some cafés choose cheap doughnuts over quality to lift the profit margin.
Surely Chatswood’s Cofi House can find better doughnuts than these.
