Bikini coffee shop opens in Aurora

November 23rd, 2009 by

AURORA, Colo. (kdvr)- Coffee has never been so revealing.

Bikini baristas are now serving your daily cup of joe at the new Perky Cups at Iliff and Peoria in Aurora.

Scantily clad women serving drinks is not a new concept. Similar shops have been in business for years in places like Seattle, but this is the first of its kind in the Denver metro area.

“My title is CBI: Chief Bikini Inspector,” owner Jason Bernal told us. He says he got the idea from other bikini coffee shops which have flourished, most notably in the Pacific Northwest.

Perky Cups has taken over the space once occupied by Peaberrys Coffee. In fact, some of the bikini baristas have worked for places like Peaberrys, StarbucksÂ…and Hooters.

Elizabeth Webb doubles as a mother and full-time student.

“I wanted a job that was a lot of fun,” she says.

As for those who might cringe at women wearing bikinis behind the counter, Webb says people need to loosen up.

“We try to make those customers feel more comfortable. We’re not trying to be offensive. We just want to have fun.”

Perky Cups also offers theme days where the women wear different clothes. The days range from “Military Monday” to “Schoolgirl Thursday,” to “Fantasy Friday.”

Bernal says he’s still accepting applications, but applicants must possess a “perky” personality.
