Coffee is part of the lifestyle.

☕ Preparation

The Argentines have a fourth meal a day – La Merienda – sometime between 16 and 18 o’clock. There is coffee, usually with a piece of facturas, biscuits coated with sugar jelly, e.g. with dulce-de-leche filling, croissants (medialunas) or toast (tostadas) and orange juice.
At home, coffee is prepared in a metal jug – a Cafetera. The ground coffee hangs in a cotton filter in the pot and is doused with hot water. The brewed coffee is poured into the hot milk in your cup and often sweetened.
