Argentina: Starbucks to Arrive in Argentina

Starbucks is arriving to Argentina. Expat Argentina wonders whether domestic competition will be too much for the make a dent in the market.


  • Pete Bollini

    Excellent Expresso coffee in Argentina can be had in the most modest and the most luxurious of cafes in Buenos Aires and most other cities. I think Starbucks will take a long time to penetrate the market with their products. Perhaps several years.

  • J Ullfig

    Excellent Espreso coffee in Argentina can be had in train stations kiosks served in real demitasse cup & saucers accented by steamed milk & froth and accompanied by a glass of water and first rate pastries if you like, they would have to beat that!
