Abba Java Coffeehouse is a ministry of Wesley at Penn State, the campus ministry of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church & Wesley Foundation. The mission of Abba Java is to be a “home away from home” for Penn State Students. We welcome people from all faiths and backgrounds and identities while offering Christ’s love through hospitality and fellowship! 

We offer an alternative safe study space for students where you can enjoy self-serve free fair trade coffee and tea, food, and Wi-Fi. We also offer a quiet study space, a prayer chapel.
