Hello! My name is Jenny and I am the owner of this espresso stand. My manager Laura and my fiancé Kendall also help me manage the business!
My mission is to train, support, and mentor my baristas to become efficient and successful at creating delicious drinks! I am very proud of my current baristas, they work hard and are so supportive towards each other and understand teamwork. Coffee has always had a special place in my heart. I became a barista after high school in 2013 and that’s when I knew I wanted to have my own business making coffee because I loved it that much. I wanted to create drinks for others to enjoy. In 2015 when I was 19 years old I saw this espresso stand for sale.
Funny thing is, I used to visit Express Java as a child and I thought that there would be no way I would be able to call it my own. But my passion for coffee influenced me over the couple years of being a barista and it happened. Of course there has been ups and downs, but from everything I have been through the last 5 years I’ve learned a lot of patience, confidence, self control, honesty, and understood that change happens naturally. Never give up on yourself and always believe in yourself, even when others don’t believe in you. Confidence and positivity will take you places!
I can’t thank my customers enough for the continuous support since 2015, I wouldn’t be able to do this without them.
Thank you all for supporting my families business!
