“we LOVED IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

There a few things you must taste in Buenos Aires besides for the steak. One of this is having a good coffe!! regarding the italian influence coffe and ice creams are great in this city and in this place we had the best coffe we tasted in BA. The location si very charming being inside the historical market of San Telmo. This place is like a small shop and not a big cafeteria with tables so you can drink your coffe while you experience the vibe of the antiques market!! unique experience!!

“Where coffee legends are made”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Coffee Town is to coffee lovers what Valhalla was to Norse warriors: That hallowed country spoken of in myth, for which we have longed.

I cannot adequately describe in words the beauty of what occurs at Coffee Town every single day. The best coffee in the world is routinely brewed behind the bar of this locally owned coffee shop, opened by the founders of the coffee revolution in Buenos Aires.

Among the baristas they have the 2013 Argentine national champ, who brews a coffee so fine that you will find yourself magically transported to an otherworldly, metaphysical plane of pure coffee essence. The Brasilian guy is genuinely obsessed with coffee and has fantastic talent.

The food is very good. The restaurant has recently expanded its menu and the soups, salads, and sandwiches are all excellent and a welcome break from the usual Argentine options of jamon y queso everything.

The excellence of the coffee, the deliciousness of the food, and most of all, the friendly service of the great people are what bring me to Coffee Town every day.

I am Mateo and I approve this message.

“Really good coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

I wasn't expecting much since Buenos Aires doesn't have many options for good quality coffee. Well here it is. When will they open more? Please come to my neighborhood.

“Best Antipodean style coffee in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Not much more to say. You'll get a great flat white or cortado. Good coffee, properly done milk, friendly service, and you're inside the San Telmo Mercado. Winner.

This is the best coffee in BsAs.

Have little more to add, except to add to a previous review that said best coffee in S America - not true, but close (best coffee is at Panajachel, Lago de Atitlan, Guatemala (Crossroads Cafe)
