committed to community
(and really great coffee)

Social House Coffee is nothing short of a lifelong dream for Arrelious and Mariel Benn. Mariel’s connection to coffee began as a child in the Dominican Republic where strong, smooth coffee is a way of life. Arrelious, a former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver, knew that when he retired, he wanted to find a way to connect and give back to the Jacksonville community that supported him for so many years. 

And so, Social House was born. We are a small, quality-focused coffee shop in the heart of Avondale in Jacksonville, Florida. We ethically source premium coffee beans, roast them in small batches right here in Florida, and brew smooth-yet-bold, premium coffee in our cozy neighborhood coffee shop.
