Welcome to the Midwest Barista School!

The Midwest Barista School (MBS) is not just a barista training school. It's a complete training experience for starting a coffee business, run by successful operators, in a professional barista school. Our class provides the best trainer-to-student ratio in a small class size with JP's profitable operations since 1993 as our credentials. Read More

Changes at the Midwest Barista School!

The Midwest Barista School is excited to announce some major changes - Our facility will be moving into a completely new space. As you can see in the pictures below we are in the middle of our buildout, otherwise known as "MBS 2.0" (at least that's what we've nicknamed it). Our new facility will have more space, more equipment, more training, more new class offerings and just generally more of a good thing. And that good thing is training and education!

Transitional issues - A couple of issues related to MBS 2.0 changes:
