Men join the "sexpresso" trend as baristas in boxers
YAKIMA, Wash.- Espresso stands are getting attention. Not for their coffee, but for their women, their lingerie and even their props. Deja brew has a new special and it's not there coffee, but who is serving it.
"Most customers like the ideas but usually just women so when they come up to window they say finally we have guys serving coffee," said Joe Pleasant, a male barista.
Monday marks the stand's first month of male Monday's. So far, it is a success and bringing in a new clientele, women.
"They say its about time, that's their first words then they giggle and they love it, I haven't had a customer yet be offended or leave," said Juanita Sanchez, the owner.
While some guys are a little surprised when they pull up and see males serving coffee, the owner says they haven't heard any complaints.
"It's funny because the community has not said one word about males being in here and like I said it's very biased," said Sanchez.
The female baristas usually wear corsets, stockings and heels. Some critics say, it's not enough. As for the males, their costume is boxer briefs.
"I knew coming in I would wear this, it's just more of a laugh," said Pleasant.
Deja Brew is the only Yakima stand to have two males working in boxers along with their female baristas.
