Bikini-Clad Baristas Get a Reality Show

The Starbucks-Hooters mashup known for scantily clad baristas and good espresso may join the ranks of Snooki and the Kardashians

Back in December, Baristas Coffee Company, known for employees who wear "a variety of appealing costumed-themed attire," (or bikinis) announced its plan to develop a reality TV show with M&M Productions.

Well, it looks like the ball is finally rolling on the coffee-girls-drama fest. Casting is being finalized today, a company representative told us, and the Seattle-based coffee chain will begin filming over the weekend and through next week.

According to a press release, the show will profile "the fierce competition between Baristas (attractive girls who wear provocative costumes while preparing specialty coffee beverages and other concoctions) for top shifts," along with general company drama.

The show will focus on three primary girls, who will be staying at the Coffee Castle, but no word on who exactly we'll be wringing hands over and crying over spilt coffee with.

If you want a glimpse of what to expect, head over to the Baristastv YouTube Channel, where workers say things like, "It's cool being the person that wakes somebody up with a cup of coffee and a smile on your face."

Or, you can just drive by an espresso stand; Baristas Coffee Company has outposts in Texas and developments in New Jersey, Arizona, and Florida.
