Sexpresso could be my new favorite word!

Boston.com made my day when I saw the following headline on their front page 'A Shot of Sexpresso in Maine' where they talk about the growing trend of Coffee Shops trying to stand out from the place next store by bringing the sex 'wow' type factor into the daily grind (ha! i did it again right there)

Boston.com- In Greater Seattle, the self-appointed mecca of coffee culture in America -- and home to the unfortunately ubiquitous Starbucks -- there has been a battle of bikinied baristas raging. The area has seen the arrival of the likes of Cowgirls Espresso, a pioneer in the niche with 16 shops in Washington (photos at right and below), Java Girls (now with 14 locations in 11 states), and The Sweet Spot Cafe in the past couple years. In neighboring Oregon come reports of Bikini Coffee Company (with three stores in the state and a half dozen others in various locales on the drawing board) and in Vegas, Sexxpresso (which does Starbucks’ Short, Tall, Grande and Vente system one better by offering cup sizes in A, B, and DD).

I had never even heard of there coffee shops, since most of them seem to be on the west coast. But the ladies at my local coffee shop don't have to wear just bras at work to be awesome. Considering they know my 'usual' (ice coffee with milk and two splendas) right there... that makes me love them unconditionally.

But grabbing a Double D cup of sexxpresso in Vegas does sound like the perfect thing to do after a crazy night of partying. Granted I'd give my husband the evil eye if he ordered a DD too. Speaking of which, not one to comment about my blog ever, he did randomly bring up the Kim Kardashian picture from the last post. He DOES read my blog for the articles of course

I think the idea is pretty funny, but the top picture is kind of scary...

Sexpresso in Vegas sounds about right, but it's nipp[l]y in Maine!

Wow that is pretty damn funny! Is is normal that both of those girls had tramp stamps though? Because I may want my coffee to come from classier women, with real boobs?

Hi! This is my first time here, and I am already loving your site because your layout is so adorable!

I don't know how I'd feel if I walked into the coffee shop to T&A everywhere.

HAHA it's awesome that you mention this because I just got back from Vegas like an hour ago and I totally passed that place and thought it was awesome.

Is it a requirement to have a tramp stamp to work there?

Basic qualifications:

Perky boobs, less than 5% body fat a plus, and applicants should be able to provide own hoochie attire. Tramp stamp a must.
