  • aroma at cafe - real or not?

    Do any cafes use fake coffee aroma to attract customers? A new cafe opened near me, and walking past there is the strongest coffee smell all around the street and 20 metres down the road. It is actually a very nice smell also. It is not as though they are making tons of coffee - maybe 5 customers. So how does it smell so much?

      nope. I think I will have to sniff their walls/tables to see where it coming from (might look just a little unusual!)- it is just such a strong smell I cant believe it is from the minimal amounts of coffee they are making.

        Thats funny.

        My dear wife often points out...

        "How come I cannot smell coffee when I walk past a really busy Gloria Jeans, yet we have visitors pull-up in the street who can smell our coffee?"

        Certain blends to produce a great aroma, fresh coffee certainly helps a lot. Maybe their air-con is sucking it all out at roof level. You will get a huge difference with the lid off the doser too.

        Whats the coffee like at this cafe Damian?

          aircon could be an option.

          I havent dared go in yet - it is one side of a womens hair salon! Ill wait for some female company.

          If this is really their coffee I am very impressed - it is a really good smell. My coffee has never smelt anything like it, nor any cafes I have been to. Once I manage to get in there, Ill find out what they are using.

            Synthetic smells via aircon and exhaust are pretty common and I wouldnt be surprised if they might have them.

            There were lots of Aussie companies using them in the 90s...Just drive by KFC in the arvo on the way home from work for example. Not sure that they actually use them but it was uncanny and always at that time.... :

                    A hair salon? Im surprised that you can smell anything over the huge amount of stinky chemicals that normally billow from those places. I wonder if those same chemicals help carry the aroma?

                    "A blend of fine Central American coffees with a dash of hydrogen peroxide and chlorofluorocarbons"

                    Im with elbeano and I think you are just going to have to go in and "take one for team" Damian.

                          Fresh coffee, freshly ground is my favourite smell. I love walking outside in the mornings after Ive been making coffee, and walk back in to the aroma. Irresistible!

                          How can you resist, Damian? You gotta check out if the coffee matches the aroma. Its gotta be better than some cafes that have no aroma at all (probably from stale coffee ground a half hour before you walk in).
