Cypress Woods’ culinary arts program hosted their first Java Cafe of the school year on Thursday, Oct. 31. This is a long time tradition of the program and a fundraiser for their end of year field trip. This coffee shop is the main way fellow students can support the culinary program and participate in an event very unique to Woods. One more coffee shop should be expected sometime in the spring semester.

Throughout the years, the menu has been experimented with and the final products are always subject to change. This time, the menu included fan favorites like Oreo truffles and kolaches. Some popular additions from recent years include pizza twists and Philly cheese steak puffs. As always, they served wildcatachinos, hot chocolate and a variety of smoothies.

The coffee shop began in the morning before school and was sold out before seventh period rolled around, just like in previous years. It was located downstairs in front of the culinary classroom and kitchen. This semesters coffee shop was a success and has the program brainstorming on how to make the next one even better.
