"Yüje"

The coffee shop at my university has a board announcing some coffee-related concoction called "yüje", which is, according to the sign, pronounced "like 'you' with a J-sound on the end". Googling this word turns up nothing that I can see. Is this an actual word/name of coffee drink in some language, or is it just part of the umlauts-make-everything-cooler phenomenon? I tend to doubt that it's real, since they also serve something called a "Faux Shizzle".
