“It’s with a heavy heart that I tell you Flower Coffee is closing,” the Instagram post reads. “Our final day of operation will be Saturday, June 25th. While this iteration of my coffee journey is coming to a close, it is not the end of coffee in the Long Branch neighborhood. Your individual and community support has made this particular coffee venture a success, and as we move forward I can’t wait to share what the future holds. More soon!”
Founded by Rosemary Wilson and Jose Perez, Flower Coffee Collective, which opened in August of last year, was originally intended to be a storefront in the Long Branch community. But when the pandemic hit, Wilson says she knew it would be a bigger risk to lease a property, especially as a first business venture. “The idea of a food truck came up a few times, and we knew we had to find something unique looking,” Wilson said in the outlet’s grand opening announcement. “We searched all over the internet for a vintage camper until we came across this adorable 1960s camper trailer and knew we needed to transform it into our shop!”
News of the closure was reported over the weekend by The MoCo Show.
