From today's (Monday, August 30, 2010) San Jose Mercury News:

Baristas in bikinis perk up Fremont coffee business .

I'd heard of these but I think this is the first in the Bay Area. Sorry, I haven't been there myself so I can't comment on the quality of the coffee. But, I don't think I'd want to have an exposed midriff while making coffee in case of any splashing of hot liquids!

But, itís good to hear about some businesses doing well these days!

Later,
Larry.

There's a huge difference between a strip-joint with an espresso machine and a coffee shop.  The clue is how much the baristi are wearing, and how gender plays a part in the hiring.
You, sir, have uncovered a strip-joint.  The fact that they have an espresso machine isn't really relevant.  
If the coffee is really good, most folk don't care what the baristi are dressed like.  If they go because the baristi are nearly naked, they're not there for the coffee...
