As everyone knows, the market for coffee products in the Seattle area is fiercely competitive. The quest for customers have led one entrepreneur to develop the “sexy espresso stand“:

Espresso drive-through stands with bikini- and lingerie-sporting baristas are popping up from Monroe to Edmonds. In the past year, at least six of these java joints employing provocatively dressed young women have opened in the county. A few owners of these roadside stands say business is so brisk, they’re hiring more employees and have plans to open new locations.

…Sometimes wearing little more than pasties and bikini bottoms, the scantily clad baristas at Wheeler’s stands have scores of well-tipping customers.

This adds new meaning to the term “fair trade coffee”… (Via Neatorama.)
