I did a thorough Google search and updated the list of Bikini Espresso web sites. There are now links to 35 web sites on the blog.
Seattle pop-punk band Quickie has released a music video featuring bikini baristas from Cowgirls Espresso. It was shot on location, and appropriately titled “Bikini Barista”.

A new bikini espresso business, Foxy Lady Latte, is scheduled to open on April 12, 2010 in Kent.
The address is:
24013 104th Ave SE
As reported on Mynorthwest.com:
“The owner of a new espresso stand in Bellevue says the city is trying to shut her down. Touchdown Espresso owner Adrianne Peterson got a visit from a representative from the City of Bellevue that told her she had to stop running her espresso stand as a drive-thru. “Basically she told me, ‘You can’t have a drive thru espresso stand.’ She told me that I had to put up signs that said, ‘No drive-thru. Walk up only.’ She said I had to put cones out to barricade the stand.” Touchdown Espresso sits in the parking lot of a 76 Station at the intersection of 148th and Main St. in Bellevue. Peterson says the stand has been at that location running as a drive-thru establishment for at least a decade.”
This sounds like selective enforcement of the law, which although is not illegal, shows that the City of Bellevue has an agenda to pursue and they have no problem with harassing one business over another.
Welcome to the Bikini Baristas blog. This is the companion blog to our web site, Bikini-Baristas.com.
We will post information about new bikini baristas espresso stands, reviews, photos, and interesting events, and will respond to comments.
Our opinion is that bikini barista’s serving espresso is a great business idea. Contrary to what many people believe, most bikini expresso businesses are owned and managed by women (based on our informal survey). Our experience is that, in general, bikini baristas are friendlier than their fully clothed counterparts, and the espresso drinks are just as good if not better. A recent trip to Starbucks yielded a latte that was prety much tasteless.
