Red Barn gets a jolt from the federal government

Hopkinton-based Red Barn Coffee Roasters got a $250,000 loan thanks to stimulus funds from the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Owner Mark Verrochi told the Boston Globe he’ll use the money to purchase a much bigger coffee roaster, one that will let him increase his operation tenfold.

“We will be aggressively pursuing business I know is out there,’’ said Verrochi, who also operates cafés in Southborough, Westborough, and Boston’s Faneuil Hall.
