Welcome To More Than Coffee

God is always in control! You may have heard that because of Sam's health, the future of More Than Coffee is in doubt. God has provided an answer to the prayers of many by providing a way for the mission to continue. We are in conversation with a non-profit organization by the name of Extreme St. Louis Charitable Foundation to keep everything the same and continue the mission that God called Sam to years ago. This arrangement would allow Sam to continue what God has called him to do while allowing him some necessary rest to deal with health issues.
Funds must be raised for the foundation to take over and continue the mission. If you have questions or comments, please contact Sam at More Than Coffee. Contributions and prayers will be appreciated, but please remember that time is of the essence as we are in a time sensitive situation at the moment. Thank you.

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!
