Social Grounds Coffee & Tea Co. is a local family owned coffee shop in the heart of downtown Bothell.


Sisters, Amy Marthaler and Wendy Armstrong grew up in Snohomish, WA, and Wendy's husband Darren Armstrong in Everett, WA.  With over 30 years of collective experience in the coffee industry, the trio started Social Grounds Coffee & Tea Co. with a clear vision and a mission in mind.  To serve our customers, our community, as well be a gateway to helping others in need. We are here to serve you a consistently great cup of coffee, with friendly customer service, in a clean and relaxing environment.
