Coffee shops with baristas in bikini are hard to find, says Robert Martinez, desperate to help pay his son’s college education has opened “Yours Coffee Cups” a drive-thru coffee business in a Warm Spring district strip mall in Fremont. The coffee shop serves a 16-ounce coffee cup for $1.85.

Baristas wear a little more than a bikini top and short shorts attracted mostly male customers who are good tippers. On top of their $9-per-hour salary, baristas make an average of $50 in tip during a four-hour shift.

A 21-year old San Jose student, Samantha de la Cruz said she has more time for herself and takes home more than in fours hour of work in a coffee shop than she did working eight hours a day.

Coffee shops with bikini working women have become popular in the land that gave the world Starbucks, the Pacific Northwest.

Martinez said business has been good, by the second week, Your Coffee Cups have doubled its revenue than his predecessor, Island Java. There are however oppositions on issues that baristas flashing customers for bigger tips and customers exposing themselves to baristas.

Martinez and the baristas deny said issue. Barista Rosanna Ortiz said that the customers just say “Hi”, get their coffee and leave. “They don’t make you feel like a stripper,” she added.
