Baristas should wear what they want — so long as the coffee’s good

I have been reading and listening to all the talk about these bikini baristas at the espresso stands in our region. I don’t understand why so many people become so offended, just because someone is wearing a bikini and serving coffee.

I have been reading and listening to all the talk about these bikini baristas at the espresso stands in our region. I don’t understand why so many people become so offended, just because someone is wearing a bikini and serving coffee.

I ride the bus down A Street in Auburn where the Cowgirls are, and it is very hard to see them from the view of a window in a moving vehicle. So unless you stop long enough to gawk at them, then there is nothing to worry about. I think it’s awesome that we have something like this in Auburn.

I am a 35-year-old mother of a 10-year-old son, and I have absolutely no problem with these baristas. They could be naked for all I care, as long as they make a good cup of coffee. Those who complain about the way the girls are dressed need to loosen up. They are too uptight about the human form.

You don’t want a girl in a bikini serving you drinks? Then you can choose to go somewhere else for your coffee. There are over 10 other espresso places in Auburn alone to choose from. We all have a right to choose what we want for ourselves – whether it’s a bikini barista or provocative mermaids on our coffee cups.

Life’s too short to worry how other people dress. The outfit doesn’t make the mocha, the barista does.
