SPOKANE, Wash. —

You've heard of bikini baristas. Now get ready for beefcake baristas.

A Spokane businessman is planning to open a coffee shop staffed by shirtless men. It will be called Hot Cup of Joe.

Chris Mullins told The Spokesman-Review his business will open on Friday.

While some bikini barista shops have come under fire for revealing too much, Mullins says his business won't push the limits.

He says his employees won't be wearing thongs.
