Sweet Hazel Coffee Co., which previously operated out of a trailer, expanded into a storefront, owners Winn Molnari and Jessica Bastidas confirmed via email.

“We've had a wonderful welcoming by all the locals,” Molnari said. “Our hope is to continue to serve this area for a long time to come.”

The business’s name is inspired by the owners’ chocolate lab, Hazel, who passed away in 2022 at 14 years old, Molnari and Bastidas said via email.

“She was a big part of our lives and brought us comfort and lots of joy,” Bastidas said. “We hope our coffee shop, drinks and employees do the same for our customers.”
