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.

The building west of the Des Moines Freedom for Youth campus is where the coffee shop resides. 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 located at 2329 Hickman Road in Des Moines and is open Monday - Saturday. You can call the coffee shop at 515-279-0500.
