Linda Lareau, owner of Courthouse Coffee, pours hot water over fresh-ground coffee beans to create an individualized cup of coffee. Lareau is able to prepare coffee one cup at a time with her brew bar, which she leases from the Santa Cruz Roasting Company. The freshness is the No. 1 reason people like the brew bar, Lareau said. The second thing is that they have choices. It's an individualized cup. We personalize every cup. Customers have their pick from about a dozen types of coffee, from light to dark roasts, caffeinated or not. A 16-ounce coffee costs $1.65, or customers can buy a brew card for $15, good for 10 cups. Courthouse Coffee is located at 1425 Lincoln Way in Auburn. Call (530) 889-1373 to learn more about Courthouse Coffee.
