Carla’s been a florist for more than 20 years —creating things by hand comes naturally to her. That’s why she decided to open a coffee shop inside Blythewood Gloriosa Florist, where the beans are roasted locally and ground by hand, and where every cup is made to order. Whether you’re making a purchase in our flower shop, or just looking for a refreshing cold-brew iced coffee or a flavorful pour over, you’re welcome to sit and stay awhile at Bloomin’ Bean Coffee Bar
