Coffeehouse owner Tulio DeAlmeida talks with baristas Adriana McAllister, left, and Johanna Cullenberg on opening day at Aroma Joe’s in Auburn. DeAlmeida said the coffeehouse and drive-through opened at 5 a.m. Monday. He recently moved from South Portland and bought a home in Lewiston. DeAlmeida said he plans to have a grand opening celebration in six to eight weeks. The new building has room for another yet-to-be-determined business, he said. 

The Aroma Joe’s on Center Street in Auburn is one of the few that features a drive-through and a coffeehouse where you can go inside and sit down.
