Mars Cafe specializes in coffee.  We aren’t your average chain coffee shop that hurries you out the door with an inferior coffee product. As a specialty coffee shop, our baristas are highly trained to ensure the quality and consistency of every cup we serve. We regularly serve two roasts of drip coffee that vary by region in addition to individual Chemex and V-60 pour-overs. We’re proud to be serving some of Des Moines’ best espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, Americanos, and our homemade Chai.

We serve Kickapoo Coffee.  Kickapoo’s handcrafted coffee is roasted weekly at its headquarters in Viroqua, Wisconsin.  Their artisan quality beans are imported directly through Fair Trade partnerships with farmer cooperatives committed to quality and sustainability.  You can learn more about Kickapoo Coffee Roasters here.


For tea drinkers, we have a full selection of Rishi Teas.  Contact us for more information on our current offerings.
