Stemistry offers affordable, pre-made bouquets crafted by professional florists and gives customers the option to design their own personalized arrangements using a unique build-your-own bouquet bar – picking out flowers, paying by the stem, then moving to an easy design table where free supplies are available to craft a floral masterpiece.
The Coffee Lab embraces the floral backbone of the shop by infusing flowers into different ingredients used to make the drinks like rose, lavender, sunflowers and more. In addition to coffee and tea drinks, Stemistry offers a food menu that includes breakfast and lunch sandwiches, pastries and desserts.
Capshaw is a 16-year-old entrepreneur and environmental activist. Prior to opening the first Stemistry in Scottsdale in 2022, he founded two non-profits – For the Frontline and Capshaw Wildlife.
