Tamara Crouch’s class at French Ford Middle School is brewing up coffee and hot chocolate for the teaching staff and learning business skills in the process.

Students receive and process orders by preparing creamer, sweetener, and stirring sticks into treat bags that match the order. Staff choose the flavor of creamer: regular or vanilla, the sweetener: regular sugar or sugar substitute, and the desired amounts of each. In addition to the fixings, staff chooses the brew flavor, as French Ford Brew offers a dark roast, a medium roast, and decaf. “We now offer hot chocolate with whipped cream and sprinkles!” said Crouch.
