THE GALAXY'S BEST COFFEE
Like any great tale of celestial exploration, Mars Coffee's story hearkens back to the days of the space race. In this case, our founding Martians were on the search for the galaxy's best coffee. A miscalculation on their part, caused presumably by a lack of caffeine, meant they accidentally missed their approach to the red planet and set their thrusters instead to the Drake neighborhood of Des Moines. They were pleased with their new surroundings so made Dogtown their home and thus became the city's first third wave cafe. Since those heady days of misguided exploration, Mars Coffee has stood by its mission of offering the galaxy's best coffee, in a welcoming space, served every now and then with some space snacks. For the aspiring voyager, our protagonists then began the Cosmonaut Coffee Club — offering a monthly box filled with bags of coffee. And so the Martians' quest to find and serve the galaxy's best coffee continued.
