Aroma is a coffee icon in its home country of Israel, where it's known for quality and service. And now American coffee lovers are getting a chance to enjoy it as well.

Having opened its first U.S. location in the Soho neighborhood of New York City in 2006, it can now be found in several states on the East Coast. In total, there are more than 140 locations around the globe. Really good coffee and a healthy mix of food inspired by Israeli cuisine all but ensures it will continue to grow.
