Contra Coffee Brings Craft Brews to Orange

When you first walk into Old Town Orange’s Contra Coffeehouse & Tea, you are greeted with a library of books lining the wall. It trails down, showcasing a collection of local students’ artwork. To the left lie pastel-colored drink taps, boasting creative drink combinations mixing bases like horchata, dark coffee and various teas. Despite its appearance, Contra Coffee lies in the midst of a bookstore, art gallery and a podcast studio all-in-one thanks to its collaboration with 1888, a non-profit literary arts organization.
