Welcome To More Than Coffee

IMPACT! When something has a major impact it not only effects what it directly hits, it affects everything around it. Just look at a meteor crater and how far around the crater that dirt and rock is scattered. More Than Coffee and Sam Malek have been making an impact in West St. Louis County and for countless people with developmental disabilities for years. Beyond those with developmental disabilities, MTC has been a blessing for those who have volunteered over the years, for those who have received donations from MTC, and for those who have met Sam and who he has lifted up in prayer. An opportunity has been made available for MTC to continue its mission and impact. That opportunity has been extended to September 30, 2016. Money must still be raised in order for the Extreme St. Louis Charitable Foundation to continue MTC’s mission. If the remainder of the money cannot be raised, MTC as we know it at 14240 Manchester Road, will no longer exist as the lease will expire and it will have to be removed. As much as Sam would like to continue his role at MTC, he is gradually becoming unable to do so. However, this transition to ESTLCF would continue MTC’s mission and impact for many years to come. Please consider making a donation to continue this ministry and the impact it has had on so many! For more information on Extreme St. Louis Charitable Foundation, please go to

Service is not a department; It's an attitude.
More Than Coffee is a unique business venture. The proprietor, Sam Malek runs this business and contributes portions of his profits to helping others who need a helping hand.

Sam started "More Than Coffee" in 2003 and has been operating out of the new shop since April 9, 2007. Many thanks to Extreme Makeover Home Edition for the beautiful new building!

Our mission is to help people. Please check out our video which explains how "More Than Coffee" glorifies God by training young adults to learn to work. They are taught a solid work ethic through hands-on training from caring teachers: video

On Saturday, April 9, 2016 More Than Coffee will celebrate its 9-Year Anniversary. Stop by the shop and help us celebrate 9 years of ministry to our special needs kids. It is truly been a blessing to serve these families.

In these past 12 years, More Than Coffee has helped more than 80 physically and mentally challenged individuals obtain gainful employment in our community. More Than Coffee also contributes to a variety of charities; to date Sam has helped more than 40 local charities with his coffee based ministry. A devout Christian, Sam does not look for recognition, but would appreciate your support and is willing to work hard to earn your business..

For more information about the work we do for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, please visit the “About Us” page.

Come on by and get some of the best coffee and food in town – and know that by patronizing Sam’s business – you are also doing your part to help others who are in need.

All the profits to More Than Coffee go to the charities we support! Have a wonderful day! God Bless You!
