Thanks Federico and you other for the tips.  

I'll be visiting BsAs in late October, looking forward to it!  

I will be trying out Establecimiento General de Cafe and Alsina 300 for the coffee, Faena for the cool design and Cafe Tortoni for the BsAs ambience.

Hi all,

Just reporting back for those visiting Buenos Aires.

As I write this I'm enjoying un jarrito americano de Moonsoned Malabar, En Establecimiento General de Cafe.

A very cool coffee shop in a very busy local of Buenos Aires.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere here and the service was helpful and warm. They are all about educating their customers with a very good diver’s selection of coffees from Indonesian, Kenyan and India when I visited.

Espresso via a la Marzocco machine was enjoyable.

When you first walk into the front of the shop you are greeted with the wonderful aroma of roasted coffee. The shop I visited had a Diedrich roaster on hand, roasting a variable of coffee selections which was also part of an area where they sell and display home espresso machines, French press and moka pots.

Muchas Gracias to Rodrigo Medina our server & Luis Bazan our barista.

Federico, thank you also for the recommendation we had a great time.

I found the best three places hands down for good espresso in BA:

  1. Latte n Te, Thames 1981
  2. Full City Coffee, Jorge Newberry 3663
  3. Coco Espresso, Av Belgrano 1711

I didn't make it to Alsina or Asacafe but I can tell you that Establecimiento General de Café is overrated.
Most coffee places pour the traditional Italian roast and most don't pour it well.

A correction to the 1st one: Latte-N-Te is not in Thames 1981, but in Thames 1891. I just found it today and I can honestly say (after living 40 years in BA) that so far is the only place where they know how to texture milk for their capuccinos. Plus the latte art, something totally unusual in this city.

I still have to find out about Full City Coffee and CoCo. And the one in San Telmo. But hope is not totally lost in Buenos Aires.

It is hard to find best coffee in town because coffee is available in every corner of the street. Like Federico replied, "Establecimiento General del Cafe" is one of the best café in finding best espresso cafes in Buenos Aires. Thank you.
