The San Telmo market just got A LOT bit better. Coffee snobs, coffee lovers and coffee addicts can now flock to the infamous mercado for a quick shot of this liquid gold. A small coffee hut nestled in between a vegetable stand and a hoarder’s antiqued-out dream, Coffee Town, the new love hijo of the Centro de Estudios del Café, is brewing up a coffee storm.One of the newer projects the Centro de Estudios del Café has up their sleeve, Coffee Town is run by professional baristas, all who study at the coffee center, whipping up quality coffee to the many market passersby. You ain’t going to find your favorite milked-out cortado of sugar-toasted beans here, Coffee Town imports fair trade beans from all over the world – think countries like Colombia, Mexico, Ethiopia, India, Guinea, Yemen and Sumatra.Menu is ample, with items like “regular” espressos, Americanos and cortados, cappuccinos, fancy frappacrappajappa-cinos, mochas and even the cute little Instagram in a cup, latte drawings.Side note: food, cats, sunsets, skylines and latte art – Instagram is wondrous.Coffee Town also offers organic and natural juices, beer, a modest sandwiches menu, the whole cookie-alfajor-muffin-brownie-medialuna biznass, and great dark chocolates.Besides Café Colombia, my #1 San Telmo coffee fix at the Sunday street fair, Coffee Town brings the best coffee to San Telmo, with expert barista friendly service, a huge selection of international fair trade coffee, all in the lively Mercado de San Telmo atmosphere.
