Whether you roast your own beans or simply know the difference between a cappuccino and a macchiato, you might fall into this category.

Located in the bustling metropolis of Buenos Aires, Cafe Tortoni is Argentina’s oldest cafe. The cafe has quite a special place in the country’s history, as it has been a favorite hangout for artists, politicians, and musicians since way back in the 1800s. If you get the chance to visit, don’t leave without ordering the dish that remains a favorite among locals – chocolate con churros, which is crunchy fried dough dipped in melted hot chocolate.
