Fairwood Featured Business – THERE YA GO ESPRESSO!

With this post, I am happy to be continuing my “Fairwood Featured Business” series with installment #7

My ongoing passion is to highlight and celebrate the neighborhood I live in, raise my kids in and work in.  I believe that a big part of what enhances our quality of life is when we enjoy our surroundings.  So I’m taking an opportunity to focus on our neighborhood specifically and to appreciate all that we have here, so close to pic 6

Previously on this blog, I have featured Plaza Cleaners, Fairwood Thai Cuisine, and Cosmo Nail Parlor, Fairwood Golf & Country Club, Fire District #40, Station 17, and Shakey’s.

For the month of July, I am so happy to feature There Ya Go Espresso!!

This my favorite coffee stop for so many reasons!  It’s close, it has a convenient drive thru, and They Know My Name!  I love great customer service, and that’s what I get every time at There Ya Go Espresso.

Owners Brian & Shelly Cox bought the Fairwood stand in 2008.  Both local kids, (Brian – Kentridge HS, Shelly – Tahoma HS) their commitment to bringing quality independent business to their community is something I truly admire.  They own two locations, Fairwood and Maple Valley, and have been working in the coffee industry since 1995,

Caffe’ D’arte Coffee

There Ya Go proudly serves Caffe’ D’arte Coffee, which I learned is one of the oldest roasters in Seattle.  They were roasting here when Starbucks and Seattle’s Best were just baby coffee companies!  Caffe D’arte also has a roasting plant in Italy, so it’s like having “real Italian roast” right here in Seattle!  In addition to coffee, There Ya Go serves a variety of teas, food items, and recently began offering SPARK, by Advocare!

The Fairwood location was just remodeled in 2016, employs 6 Amazing Baristas, and offers specials every weekday!  Free Muffin (banana bread) Monday, Two Stamp Tuesday, 4th Shot Free on Wednesday, 50c off Food Thursday, and Free Flavor Friday!!!

Open every day from 5am-5pm, There Ya Go Espresso is one of Fairwood’s Finest!

Thank you Brian and Stacy Cox ~ keep up the good work!
