A Shot of Java swiftly grinds, pours, and mixes myriad organic fair-trade coffee drinks designed for palates of all personalities. The café's menu is stocked with flavor-infused coffee drinks, specialty teas, and locally sourced eats and treats. Energize a morning commute with a 16-ounce cup of individually dripped coffee ($1.95), available in a mug or an outstretched cupped hand. A 20-ounce black-and-white mocha tantalizes taste buds with the savory aesthetic of edible, zebra-patterned cream ($4.95), and a range of 16-ounce chai teas ($3.85) present a worthy substitute for bean-excreted refreshments. Recent grads and veteran grandpas can study abroad by sampling a five-ounce cup of Turkish coffee ($2.75) or Vietnamese coffee ($4.50) served iced with condensed milk.
Between barista trickery and simplistic service mastery, the staffers at A Shot of Java make sure to give shout-outs to the arts. Original works of 2-D art, 3-D poetry, omnidirectional music, and other live events frequently enliven the cafe space. Likewise, while snacking on bagels or other fresh baked goods, patrons can take advantage of the in-house WiFi by researching the difference between organic, fair trade, and Lego–laden foodstuffs.
