OUR STORY

OUR STORY


 

Freedom Blend Coffee was founded in 2011 by Freedom for Youth to bring employment training opportunities to young people in the community. In the beginning, we roasted and sold bags of coffee out of a small building on the west end of the campus. But the goal was always to open an actual coffee shop that would be open to the public.

In 2014, the ministry purchased the car wash located just west of its Des Moines campus. With the help of many volunteers, donors, and businesses within the community, the structure was renovated into the coffee shop that stands today. The coffee shop finally had its grand opening on September 13th, 2017.
