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.

Shot of the Tower Clock in Downtown HollandJP's Coffee and the Midwest Barista School facilities are located in the heart of the award-winning downtown of Holland, Michigan. 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.
