Working with us

The five day class is a must for anyone interested in opening a coffee shop serving the absolute best coffee and espresso in the country. Jack and his team of instructors are all perfectionist and it shows throughout the training offered at the M.B.S. I highly recommend this class to anyone in the coffee business.

Facilities & Location

All educational classes are taught in our on-site classroom and all hands-on training is done at our second specially-designed and fully equipped espresso bar right in our store. The dynamics of being trained right next to a fully operational store add the authenticity and reality of every day operation. Larger classes can be accommodated at the Haworth Inn, a business hotel one block from our facilities.

Holland has won such awards as "All-America City", "Greatest American Main Street Award" and one of America's "Dozen Distinctive Destinations". With interstate, highway, rail, and air transportation serving the community, as well as a harbor connecting us to the Great Lakes and beyond, Holland is a "World Class" community.

West Michigan and Holland in particular, is a popular tourist destination. The downtown of Holland is benchmarked as a model of public and private cooperation and downtown revitalization. We encourage anyone interested to add a day or two to their training time and enjoy one of the finest downtowns in all America. This combined with the Midwest Barista School's training and education make Holland a wonderful destination for a combined business and pleasure trip.
