Aroma Espresso Bar (Hebrew: ארומה אספרסו בר) is an Israeli espresso and coffee chain with 153 branches around the country, and several branches in the United States, Canada, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.
Founded in 1994 on Hillel Street in downtown Jerusalem by Yariv and Sahar Shefa, Aroma first started branching out beyond that city in 2000. In 2006 the first overseas branch opened in SoHo in New York City. In 2007 Aroma opened its first location in Canada, in downtown Toronto in The Annex. In the following years, branches continued to open in Toronto and on 72nd Street in New York City, as well as the first location in Kyiv, Ukraine. Aroma has 46 Canadian locations in Ontario (mostly in Greater Toronto Area), as well as five US locations across New York City (1), New Jersey (1), Maryland (1), and Florida (2).
A survey by an Israeli market research company found that more Israeli consumers are inclined to choose a cafe based on accessibility and availability, ahead of cost and taste of the food. According to Haaretz newspaper, this may explain the success of Aroma, which has 153 outlets in Israel. Respondents were asked which chain they thought had the cheapest prices and best service. Aroma won by a wide margin.
