Jorge Ler­man

Jorge Ler­man is the King of Mates & Bom­bil­las in Buenos Aires. Su­per re­li­able, su­per friend­ly, and has a mas­sive sup­ply of all types of Mates and Bom­bil­las in stock. Whether you need a few for the house or thou­sands for your busi­ness (with your com­pa­ny’s lo­go — free!), Jorge’s got you cov­ered.

Aaron Brown

Aaron re­al­ly knows his stuff about beer. Get him tip­sy and he will spend hours telling you about its his­to­ry, its dis­cov­ery in an­cient Egypt, all the com­pa­nies in Ar­genti­na and how they are different–and which ones are great. He runs a mean beer tast­ing, too.

Katharine Pot­tinger

The Club­house is one of the se­cret gems of Buenos Aires: old fash­ioned yet in­cred­i­bly cool. If you want to feel safe or com­fort­able, or just to meet great peo­ple and have a drink in the most per­fect at­mos­phere, stop by the Club. And Kather­ine is the Woman be­hind the woman be­hind the woman who…

Archana Rao

With a back­ground in bak­ing, pas­try arts and about a life­time of dream­ing up new recipes in the kitchen, Archana loves to bake and has cre­at­ed some of the most beau­ti­ful wed­ding cakes I have ever seen. Claim­ing to hav­ing been “hooked” since she first tried cake bat­ter, Archana’s des­tiny and pas­sion is all things…

María Car­rá

María’s judg­ment is awe­some; im­pec­ca­ble food taste, and com­plete­ly honest–although, if her opin­ion is not all that pos­i­tive, she is much like­ly to be com­plete­ly silent rather than speak neg­a­tive­ly.

An­ish Pa­tel

I’ve nev­er met An­ish, but I’ve seen him around town a few times. His name just al­ways seems to come up: the go-to guy for video and an­i­ma­tion. You want a 2 minute movie on your web site ex­plain­ing what your prod­uct is? Sit back, he’ll do a great job. See the demos on his…

Mar­co Zuin

Mar­co Zuin is from Pad­ua but could pass for an Ar­gen­tine in ac­cent, in looks, in chamuyo abil­i­ties. But one way in which he does not pass for an Ar­gen­tine is in his ob­ses­sive work-eth­ic. To Mar­co, hol­i­days don’t exist–he will spend every mo­ment mak­ing his busi­ness bet­ter. And what in­dus­try does he have his…

Amy Schi­ap­pa

Hav­ing worked in sa­lons her whole life, Amy brings noth­ing less than ex­per­tise, style and cre­ativ­i­ty to the chair. She has tru­ly worked to cre­ate an en­vi­ron­ment where art and de­sign are com­bined through the per­fect hair­cut. Amy will take any head of hair and turn it in­to a work of art — cut just…

David Askaripour

David knows his mate. Amer­i­cans in Ar­genti­na tend to adopt the lo­cal cus­toms and en­joy the mate; but David is a man ob­sessed. In true Ar­gen­tine style, he can sit for hours and dis­course on the mean­ing of the shared drink passed around as though it was a pipe. I haven’t been on one of…
