A coffee shop in the region is considered one of the nation’s bucket-list destinations for coffee.

BuzzFeed Community readers voted Lemonjello’s Coffee in Holland No. 2 on the site’s ranking of the “24 U.S. Coffee Shops to Visit Before You Die.”

Lemonjello’s places behind the No. 1-ranked Monorail Espresso in Seattle.

The ranking posted last week covers independently owned coffee shops.

The ranking features a brief review of Lemonjello’s Coffee by BuzzFeed reader Rachel Syens.

“Lovely local shop with amazing coffee, beautiful latte art, delicious homemade baked goods (including lots of gluten free and vegan options) and an emphasis on community,” Syens says in the post. “They’re also really supportive of the local scene — they brew local coffee and display artwork by local artists.”

The coffee shop serves a variety of locally roasted coffees, including a selection by Madcap in Grand Rapids.

Lemonjello’s owner Matt Scott recently placed second at the North Central Regional Barista Competition.

He will compete at the U.S. Barista Championship in February.
