The owners of Hartmann Farmhouse, a boutique store in the Redlands, recently acquired the Sip Coffee Bar to include with its business.

The coffee bar opened Nov. 9 at Hartmann Farmhouse, 2259 Broadway, above the roundabout in the Redlands. It had previously been in business for about six years.

"It's open so people can come in, grab coffee and shop at the store," farmhouse owner Dara Hartmann said.

The shop is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to noon Sunday.

Hartmann Farmhouse sells a variety of items, including honey, natural soaps, lotions and body products using honey and beeswax. It's been in business for a little over a year and has sought to add products requested by customers, Hartmann said.

Hartmann said she was hoping to add coffee to the shop and just happened to be friends with the coffee bar's previous owners.

The coffee bar was on a mobile cart and was wheeled into the store.

"In the year I've been open, people have wanted coffee and beer. So we're starting with coffee," Hartmann said.
