My mom grew up there, and I spent a lot of time there as a kid visiting my grandpa, so I'm very familiar with it. Nothing is "wrong" exactly. It's just not a place that I could live, and seems a surprising place for Java development.
It's a town of less than 6 square miles with nothing but farmland for miles (and miles and miles). The population of less than 2,600 is almost 99% caucasian (with a disproportionately high level of senior citizens -- 31% compared to a national average of 12%) and is gradually decreasing at nearly 2% per year. The median household income is about 25% below the national average.
Glenwood compared to Minnesota state average:
Black race population percentage significantly below state average.
Hispanic race population percentage significantly below state average.
Median age significantly above state average.
Foreign-born population percentage significantly below state average.
Institutionalized population percentage significantly above state average.
Number of college students significantly below state average.
Also, the town is heavily conservative (based on the Federal Election Commission's report of political contributions over the past few years).
I could reply with the most obvious answer, but I'm wonder that I didn't understand your point. By the way, I don't know if I made myself clear, but I would like to work in a place(City/State), within of mixed culture. But it's me. Thanks, Nato.

Me too, and that's why I couldn't live there. I was joking about the coffee. (Well, I mean it's probably true that you can't get a decent cup of coffee there, but that's obviously not the real problem.)
