CHEROKEE, Kan. (AP) _ Students at a Kansas high school are hawking java to their teachers and classmates and learning business skills in the process.

The Morning Sun in Pittsburg reports that a coffee shop opened this month at Southeast High School in Cherokee. The project is an extension of an existing student-operated shop, called the Spirit Shack. It carries school gear, iPad chargers, vending machine treats and other products.

Senior Kelsey Dietz says students became interested in selling coffee after another school talked about their coffee shop program during a state conference. Southeast High School students toured other student-run coffee shops before opening theirs.

Students said the first few days of being in business were much more stressful and successful than they would have imagined.
