Meet the newest baristas in the Phoenix coffee scene -- in uniform.
We often feel the desire to wear bathing suits instead of clothing to work when temperatures break triple digits, but we don't do it because gross. As some coffee brewers and roasters in town (Cartel, Press, and Giant) elevate the coffee experience, a new coffee drive-thru called Bikini Beans Espresso will hit the Phoenix caffeine scene -- and knock it down a few pegs.

Let's be real here: It's not about the coffee. It's evident because there's no information readily available on who even roasts the Bikini Beans, though there are references to Espressions on Bikini Beans' Facebook page. Further evidence comes in the form of a specialty drink called the Twisted Bikini Redbull [sic], which is a nauseating-sounding blend of Red Bull, strawberry syrup, vanilla syrup, and orange juice to get you pepped and perky. There also will be coffee and smoothies and stuff.

One commenter summed up the whole issue with this place on the Bikini Beans Facebook page:

"I'm not a coffee drinker at All! But I can't wait to have a cup of coffee at the new bikini coffee shop!!!!!! I love the Columbia blend!!!"

Yikes. Look, it's not that we hate fun. It's just that until all work places allow a pants-free environment, we don't ever want to have to watch our barista traipse around in a bikini. Some things are just too much too handle before our morning cuppa.

In any case, if you want to try out Bikini Beans Espresso, the drive-thru, located at 2330 North Seventh Street, will be at 7 a.m. Saturday, May 17.

So this article is disgusted by the idea of using sex to sell coffee but has no problem using that same sex to get clicks/likes/ad views.

They could at least have selected a better color for the bikinis& if ur gonna hire a hot chick to serve you coffee in hooker heels and a bikini if she doesn't have ink of some sort, sorry I'm not interested. :)

Your implication that because these women are scantilly clad means they are likely illterate is, in two words, fucking stupid.

Oh, that's an easy one: No one gives a fuck--I mean, that's not fair for me to speak for eeeeeeveryone. But I'll just say most people. Your mother's probably interested. Best friend, maybe. But the rest of us? Yeah, we give zero fucks about what you think.

I bet this takes off like crazy. Would I ever work there? No. Would I go there? Why not. Im comfortable enough with myself to get a tasty raspberry mocha served to me by a hot chick in a bikini. The shoes are a bit ridiculous, but only because I could imagine how bad their feet will hate them after their shift.

These places are all over in WA state. Really, what is the purpose? You get your coffee from some girl in a slutty bathing suit who doesn't know how to make coffee. Honestly, what is the thrill????? I don't get it. Men, explain why you would go here?????

so the owner has them wear bikinis because clothes are just too hot and makes working uncomfortable, but they can wear hooker heels????!!!!

Kelly I can say this...people take coffee seriously here in Dallas and not sure if this gives that serious coffee image. Maybe these gals are true baristas but I am thinking it's more of a schtick...just my personal opinion. I could be wrong!

You all live on a vacuum. None realizing this has already been done rather successfully in another city. I'm betting the women on here go to the beach in hajibs and the men only go to ogle the women. Amiright?

Sex sells....the people visiting this shop won't care about coffee.....someone should stand outside and photo all the MEN suddenly buying coffee....just to make a point...
