Bikini-clad Baristas Open For Business In Seattle

Bikini-clad Baristas Open For Business In Seattle

By Robert Paul Reyes

If a coffe shop calls its employees "baristas", you can bet it will overcharge for a cup of coffee. I`d rather get my cup of Joe at Burger King for a fraction of the price.

If a barista dons a skimpy thong, provided the barista is not a pot-bellied middle-aged guy, the sky is the limit as to how much the coffee shop can charge for a simple cup of Java.


"The Space Needle may have a new competitor vying for the attention of onlookers.

Across the street from one of the city`s signature tourist attractions, a new espresso stand features baristas wearing nothing more than bikinis.

Sporting their bare midsections, the baristas at Java Girls say their skimpy outfits earn them big tips."

Quotation from KVAL.Com

Fools who patronize Java Girls will end up paying close to $10 (including tip), for a cup of coffee they could have bought almost anywhere else for less than $2

A good cup of coffee will wake me up, I don`t need the added stimulation of a bikini-clad hottie.

This is America and baristas should be free to wear thongs or a burqas; I just hope the scantily clad ladies don`t spill any hot coffee on their unprotected bodies.
