Hot Latte! Bikini-Clad Baristas May Soon Hit the Valley
The exterior of Baristas' San Antonio location. "Costume Coffee" to go?
Baristas Coffee Company, a Seattle-based franchise, could be branching out across the Valley. Local news outlets are reporting that up to five new java joints could be coming to Tempe and Scottsdale early next year. If you're thinking, "So what, it's just another Starbucks competitor," think more along the lines of Hooters or Tilted Kilt hopped up on espresso instead of crappy chicken wings.
The corporate uniform at Baristas is more Victoria's Secret than Seattle's Best.
