best coffee brands in Argentina
To start talking about the brands that we can find in any supermarket gondola, it is necessary to make some important distinctions.
First of all, it is worth noting that Argentine supermarket coffees are usually specifically designed for the filter coffee maker, so there are tastes, flavors and aromas that will not be appreciated despite the coquettish packaging.
Secondly, it is also interesting to clarify that within these brands we can find perfectly good coffees and distinguish them from bad ones.
This is a selection of the best Argentine supermarket coffees, so the bad ones are already out of the list.
And besides, we don’t like to dirty the work of the companies (even if they don’t do it well).
Although their branding has changed to simply Morenita, La Morenita coffee is a traditional Argentinean coffee that has been with them for over 100 years.
It’s a classic.
Rating: Good and according to its affordable price.
La Virginia has varieties in different packs ranging from 125, 250, 500 to 1000 grams.
It is another traditional heavyweight of Argentine coffee and is backed by its enormous experience in the industry.
It competes hand in hand with Morenita to be the coffee chosen by the popular masses.
Characteristics: Affordable price, flat and consistent flavor.
Another traditional coffee from the region, but in this case, a Brazilian coffee. Not only is it “a coffee” but it is one of the most important coffee brands in the world.
Nescafé with its recent Nescafé Gold flavors has been the choice of many Uruguayans and Argentines living on both sides of the Rio de la Plata.
Characteristics: Exhaustive competitor with good Brazilian roasting.
Sensations – Bonafide
It has two different packages cataloged as soft roasted and intense roasted.
The soft roasting is specially made with green beans of the popular arabica variety, and when roasted with sugar, the caramelized flavor of the beans is obtained.
Bonafide’s intense Torrado has a more pronounced and intense flavor. Highly recommended.
Super Cabrales has a less accessible price, but its cost has a direct correlation with its quality.
Superior in body and intensity than the previous coffees already mentioned.
Coffee is imported from Colombia, and we all know that means good things.
Durban coffee doesn’t fail.
From its packaging to its taste, all the elements are well taken care of to give the taste that the taster deserves.
It’s no coincidence that the top 2 is occupied by two Colombian coffees.
One of the most special coffees we can find in the Argentinean shelves.
According to Cabrales: “we chose the best Colombian beans and brought them to Argentina”.
A product elaborated with the Arabica variety and ideal to drink at any possible occasion.
Because of this, obviously, its price is practically 3 times higher than Morenita coffee or La Virginia coffee.
To sum up:
The best coffees you can get in Argentina come from Colombia.
And that is not a reason to be sad, it has to be a source of pride for a region that is well represented in the world and, at the end of the day, what we want is to drink the best cup of coffee possible.
Author’s note: It’s a shame how little information some of these Argentine brands offer about their products on the internet.
You always want to know more in order to have all the necessary elements to elaborate the ranking, but sometimes it is very difficult.
