Not Interested In Bikini Baristas? Maybe You’d Like Shirtless Men Instead

These baristas are both attractive and talented.

These baristas are both attractive and talented.

Sure, not everyone finds the idea appealing, but coffee shops and stands with scantily clad ladies behind the counter are a popular diversion and source of caffeine. Yeah, there are the occasional accusations of stripping and bringing new meaning to “bottomless cup of coffee,” but they’re not a big deal. They just aren’t terribly interesting unless you’re attracted to women. A new coffee stand in Spokane, Washington solves that problem.

As communities fight over bikini coffee stands that some people say push the boundaries of decency, this stand quietly opened last week and began to draw a lot of repeat business. “Most of the customers that come here anyway are women,” the owner explained to the Spokesman-Review. “Really I haven’t had a lot of male reaction.” Men do have an incentive to stop by: they receive a $1 discount on their coffee.

Hot Cup of Joe has an incredibly appropriate name, and opened on Friday. We just learned about the business from Foodbeast, and checked out some of its promotional pictures on Facebook. We can’t really get behind all of their serving suggestions.

Um.

Um.

No G-strings and pasties at Hot Cup of Joe, though. The owner says that they’re going to remain a classy topless coffee stand. The baristas may eventually leave their jeans behind and serve up coffee in what the owner calls “cute, classy underwear.”
