News Team correspondent Coco Garcia spoke with Allyson Seifert, co-owner of Pollen AVL, one of the newest coffee + floral shops in town. Pollen has a wide assortment of both coffee and flowers – with coffee recipes changing monthly and flora restocking weekly. The shop also partners with other community members to create pop-ups, such as terrarium building and wine tasting, with much more to come.
As Valentine’s Day approaches, Pollen is preparing for the holiday orders. The shop is offering three color arrangements with options that come from the inspiration of the employee’s favorite love movies, ranging from the A24 2016 feature movie, Moonlight featuring Mahershala Ali, to the controversial neo-western romance story, Brokeback Mountain, between Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall to the ultimate ’80s, David Lynch film, Wild at Heart.
Listen below to find out why Pollen is unlike any other flower shop and goes above and beyond a coffee shop, especially this Valentine’s Day.
Pollen is having a pop-up hosted by Drum Machines Edition and Seether Bookstore, Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm – Join them for artists’ books, used books, zines, cassettes, print editions, posters, hats and of course, flowers and coffee.
