MIAMI, FLA. –July 10, 2017 – Every city has a coffee culture, and the cup runneth over in Miami, where its vibrant rhythm is fueled each morning with Cuban bean espresso served at small cult-followed cafés. Leave it to The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach to bring those coveted cups directly to guests with the Lobby Bar’s new coffee cart experience, “Aroma Y Arena,” serving classic drinks and pastry starting July 15.
“We are capturing that authentic local coffee shop experience within our lobby,” said Kanat Gurel, Director of Food and Beverage at The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach. “The essence of South Beach is reflected in all of our offerings, including the new Cortaditos and Croquetas to be enjoyed in our tranquil setting away from the crowds.”
Purists will delight in the carefully sourced beans from Guatemala, Colombia, Brazil, Costa Rica and Cuba, the world’s top five Latin countries celebrated for their refined bounty. Meanwhile, a dedicated barista uses homemade recipes as well as an ancient brewing method to ensure characteristic flavor, rich body and the robust, familiar aroma scenting South Beach streets each dawn.
The star of the show is brew crafted from the old-school glass Siphon, the original vacuum coffee maker invented in the 1800’s as an alternative to boiling coffee, which kills the taste. For a truly custom cup, guests can select the beans while the barista methodically filters a steamy concoction. It’s rise and shine, The Ritz-Carlton, South Beach-style.
Open daily from 8-11a.m., the menu also features Espresso, Cortadito, Colada, Latte, Cappuccino, Americano, Cafecito and Machinetta; local pastry, both sweet and savory, includes Cheese Tequeños, Guava Pastelito and Ham Croquetas. Savor the aroma over social with #aromaYarena.
