Java Werks Catering Services


Feb. 22, 2019

We are excited to officially announce our catering services!

Recently, we were asked to cater a private gathering in Hattiesburg, and we were delighted. The clients opted for a breakfast spread which included our freshly ground coffee, scratch-made croissant sandwiches, parfaits and a variety of fruit.

We enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to continue catering. That's right! Java Werks caters! Our main goal is to provide you (our customers) with the Java Werks experience at your events, gatherings and/or meetings.

Catering includes Fresh brewed ground coffee, tea, sandwiches, salads, pastries, Arepas, fruit trays, yogurt parfaits with granola and sweets. Keep in mind that we are open to customizing your order.

Please call us at 601-268-3993 or email us at coffee@javawerks.com to discuss details.

As always, we look forward to seeing you soon and thank you for your support.

A Pocket Full of Love


Feb. 15, 2019

An arepa is an authentic, traditional Venezuelan (and Colombian) dish. We do it the Venezuelan way! It can be served as a simple bread or split down the middle with added filling. Our gluten-free arepas are prepared the exact way our grandmother used to make them. We aren't big fans of pre-made Arepas; they take 15-20 minutes to prepare.

The dough is made from a South American corn flour, and the filling is also made from scratch.

Filling choices include: chicken, pork, beef, black bean, black bean and cheese, or just a simple cheese filling.

The mixtures are combined with tomatoes, sauce, onions, garlic, salt, pepper, parsley and cilantro - and you can ask for toppings like colby-jack and cheddar cheese, greens and fresh sliced avocado (or you may request the traditional Venezuelan arepa, and we will be happy to give you a taste of our home).

Our arepas are a nice size and can act as a complete meal. Some of our friends prefer their arepa a little crisp on the outside, while others prefer it less crisp.

Please feel free to let us know how you would like yours! We look forward to seeing you soon and serving you a dish that makes us proud of our roots.

A Cup of Tea


Feb. 8, 2019

Here at Java Werks we take pride in our tea. It provides our friends with the essentials they need to make it through their day. Whether you need something to relax your mind, calm your nerves or assist with healing, we have over 34 choices of loose tea to choose from.

We offer white tea (lower in caffeine) and black tea (higher levels of caffeine) and everything in between. When our friends communicate their interest in our teas, we like to ask them their reasoning behind wanting tea. Is it for relaxation? Stress reduction? Help with sleep? Or simply for drinking purposes? Asking those questions allows us to provide them with the best tea experience possible for what they are looking for.

Two of our favorite teas are the organic Lavender Rose Green tea and Organic Lemon Ginger tea. The Lavender Rose Green tea assists with calming, relaxation, depression and sleep, while the Lemon Ginger tea is great for soothing colds, stomach aches and congestion. Sometimes we use our herbs to add additional healing properties or calming properties to the tea. One of our favorite herbs to use is the Yerba Mate; It is well known in Paraguay and helps with energy. It also serves as an effective antioxidant.

Everyone loves a good cup of coffee, and soon enough you’ll love a good cup of tea (if you don’t already). We look forward to serving you, and we hope to see you soon.
