30 The Village, Haxby
Open Monday to Friday*, 9:00am to 4:30pm
( * Resuming Saturday opening from October 2020 )
Aroma started with a group of people from Haxby and Wigginton Methodist Church having a vision for a coffee shop right at the heart of the community. A place that would become a ‘Beacon’ in the local community: somewhere showing God’s love and where people of all ages could chat, laugh, relax and enjoy each others’ company — all with great coffee and freshly prepared food.
We select fairly traded tea, coffee and hot chocolate as they enable some of the poorest in the world to receive a fair wage, and use locally sourced food because local suppliers play an important part in our community.
We are a coffee shop with a difference. Any profit made by Aroma goes to improving the service we offer to our customers and into our Aroma Community Fund, which we use to provide small grants to community projects. We also support a range of community activities and meetings, such as:
Sunday Afternoons at Aroma
Popular craft evenings
Courses run by Family Matters
A Dementia Carers Support Group
The many volunteers who wait on tables are also there to chat, listen and befriend. Faith is never far away for those who want to find out more, from invitations to local Christian events to more reflective thoughts on tables and displays throughout the year.
We look forward to welcoming you to Aroma Coffee Shop. We hope you enjoy your visit!
