Drink of Choice: Samples of three dark roasts!
Note: This is an event post rather than a full review.
I had the pleasure of being invited to an exclusive tasting event for Aroma Espresso Bar at Yonge and St. Clair this past Friday. Having tried Aroma at their first Toronto location on Bloor, I was already a fan. I love their drinks because they melt the chocolate and let it seeps at the bottom of the cup. Not to mention they always give out a free piece of chocolate for every drink you order!
At this event, Aroma was letting people sample three dark roasts, one of which will be officially launched sometime in the future for their menu. All three have different blends using beans from six different countries! In the process, I learned how to properly taste coffee (it's just like wine!). If you read my reviews frequently, you'd probably notice that I don't talk about the drinks that often. I am not very particular when it comes to coffee and I definitely don't drink dark roast either. However, I was glad I had the opportunity to at the event! I definitely learned that I could not stand bland tasting dark roast. It would need a kick in taste and aftertaste for me to enjoy it (without adding cream and sugar)!
Afterwards, Aroma gave out sandwiches, salads and pastries. I have to say, their vegan sandwiches tasted delicious! I never had food and pastries from Aroma until now. Definitely loved their quinoa salads and brownies too! I think I will order some food the next time I decide to stop by one of their locations.
Thank you Aroma Espresso Bar for the media invite! :)
