Texas coffee shop faces backlash for lingerie-wearing employees

LEAGUE CITY, TX (KPRC) - A new League City, Texas coffee shop is serving up lattes with a side of lingerie.

Double Cups Coffee opened Monday after brewing up controversy for weeks on social media.

The "bikini baristas" wear two piece swim suits or bras and panties as they make mochas.

It's not a new concept, but it is a first for this area.

"We just want to bring something fresh new ideas to the coffee scene," said co-owner Juan Martinez.

The fresh idea causing a firestorm on some of League City's biggest Facebook groups.

One woman commented, "It's just sad that this is the new normal for women/teenage girls to work in.... If your coffee, food or product is good you don't need your employees to wear lingerie/revealing clothes ... just my opinion!"
