I've hardly ever met someone who claimed they don't like coffee. But although Buenos Aires has plenty of cafés, most are just brown water with a sour taste that will make your stomach acid and swear to never have a coffee there again.
This is the COFFEE THREAD.
Clearly an Italian or Italian-Argentinian place, very good coffee with lots of love and passion. Different taste of coffee according to the barista on shift, I was explained, as each barista has their preference on the length of an espresso (20 vs 25 seconds) and the amount of pressure or coffee they use for each shot. They have some food and alcohol options like croissant, pound cakes by the slice, scrambled eggs on toast, bruschetta, spritz etc. There is a small terrace upstair. It's a place thought for a quick stop as the seating are limited and not very comfortable. But it's worth a visit if you are looking for a quick stop.
CAFÉ CON CUENTOS, Las Heras 1773 (Recoleta) Lunes a viernes de 8hr a 20hr Sábados 17hr a 20hr - https://www.instagram.com/cafeconcuentos/
A Venezuelan specialty coffee that uses a Brazilian-Venezuelan blend. Very gentle and fulfilling on the tastebuds. They also partner with a maître chocolatiere and sell precious chocolates for any taste, from beer to lime cheesecake, maracuyá and dark chocolate. The chocolates are expensive, but worth their price. Coffee has normal prices and it is definitely your best choice in the area. Cheapest breakfast combo, a cappuccino with medialunas, was just 110 pesos.
They also have live music and reading events and food options to have an informal lunch/dinner. Keep an eye on their Instagram to know more about their offer.
One of the first specialty coffee place in Palermo, very small with limited seating inside and outside. There are a few blend offers, including brewed coffee and vegetal milk. The coffee can be quite strong and bitter.
They have a variety of cakes and baked goods to accompany your coffee, and salads for lunch. I never tried the food, so I cannot comment, but their instagram is a feast for the eyes... and the stomach!
