As a customer, you have free internet at Aroma Espresso Bar.
Here how it works: you buy something at Aroma Espresso Bar, whatever you want. Let’s say you decide to buy a double espresso. Then the teller will give you a receipt. Keep it. On the receipt you will find a name and a password.
Look at the end of the Aroma Espresso Bar’s receipt: there is a special note for laptop users. Here what you will find
Kindly sit on a bar stool
WiFi User Name: aroma
WiFi Password: guestXYZW
Where XYZW are actually numbers. You can connect to the Aroma Espresso Bar’s WiFi network and then load a webpage on your web browser. Any webpage. You will see the Aroma Espresso Bar’s web login screen, and then you have to type the user name (aroma) and your password (e.g. guest9934).
The good thing: Aroma’s WiFi is free for customers and it seems pretty fast.
The bad thing: you need a full browser to access Aroma’s WiFi. I tried it on my iPhone. I just don’t know on other cell phones.
