Aroma Espresso Bar

17 Jan

It started with a sip, which slowly grew into an obsession. Growing up, I was always around coffee, thank you Mom. She always seemed to be drinking it, whether or not that was the case. Young and naive, I swore that I would never drink coffee as the taste completely disgusted me. I can still remember my disdain and declaration against it when I first tried my mom’s coffee in my early double digits.

Low and behold, I could not stay away and around three or four years ago, my love affair with coffee began. At first, it was coffee to keep me going during my days of studying and grew into a love for the taste and the experience around it; talk about ironic right? Then, every time I ventured out to explore Boston or Miami, I was excited to look for and try a new spot, have a new story. This idea permeated into my travel adventures.

The summer of 2011, while in Israel, I had to spend a few unexpected extra days in Jerusalem. This meant one thing: shopping malls. I saw them all and dined at some fabulous restaurants, but the thing I remember most about these days was my experience at Aroma Espresso Bar in the Mamilla Mall.

I needed some coffee and ventured into this distinct coffee shop. The colors it was branded with really called out the store. In addition, the service was great, the coffee divine, and you even got a chocolate to top off your coffee. Talk about the little things that make you happy!

I was pleasantly surprised when a good friend of mine, knowing I was a coffee aficionado, recommended I try out a new spot at Dadeland Mall. As I walked in, I was transported back to somewhere, and I truly couldn’t put my finger on it. I asked the cashier about the background to the store and doing some digging back into my photos from my trip through Israel, I realized it was the same chain from my good ol’ shopping days in Jerusalem.
