Freedom Blend Coffee

Freedom Blend Coffee, an enterprise of Freedom for Youth Ministries, is a full-service coffee business that empowers youth and young adults through Christ-centered employment training. The business, founded in 2011, teaches job skills and gives young people invaluable knowledge and work experience for future employment.


We source our coffee from Costa Rica, Columbia, Brazil, Guatemala, and Ethiopia. Program participants roast and blend the beans into our Extra Bold, Bold, Decaf, Mild, and Organic varieties. Each order is carefully packaged, dated, and initialed.

Freedom Blend Coffee resides just west of the Freedom for Youth home campus, at 2329 Hickman Road, in Des Moines. Program participants learn skills through serving customers, operating cash registers, managing inventory, and sales. The facility also serves as a space for mentoring and training for our ministry's youth programs.

Freedom Blend Coffee is open Monday - Friday, 6:00 am - 6:00 pm and Saturday, 8:00 am - 6:00 pm. You can call the coffee shop at 515-279-0500.
