Sprudge.com co-founder plans male bikini barista stand in San Francisco
Posted by Melissa Allison
It's not the nude beach that Seattleites are clamoring for. In fact, it's not even going to be in Seattle. But it does involve skin and Seattle barista Zachary Carlsen, the co-founder of Sprudge.com who's currently working at Stumptown Coffee's summertime shop in Amsterdam.
When that dream gig ends, Carlsen said he plans to pack his Seattle stuff and move to San Francisco, where he'll scout Castro District locations for a male bikini barista stand he plans to call "Cup of Man." Its Web site will be active soon. I hope there are photos.
"In the beginning, I'll be asking my friends to come visit and do guest barista shifts," Carlsen said in an IM'd interview on Facebook. "My female barista friends must wear fake mustaches. It'll be a cute novelty, but it will be serving the best coffee in San Francisco at the same time."
