Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Coffee culture in Denver has finally arrived.

Hot Chick-a-Latte, one of a couple of "bikini coffee" concepts from the Pacific Northwest has opened a bright pink location (well, mostly pink; they seem to have run out of paint half way through) in the A-frame building at 4736 East Colfax Avenue - former home to many other eateries, including Atomic Wings, Rib Shack and a Der Wienerschnitzel.

The ladies there serve your Joe in one of several "cup" sizes while wearing a different revealing outfit -- everything from cowgirls to naughty school girls to pink feather boas -- each day of the week.

And if business is slow - which is hasn't been - the girls hit the streets - in costume - waving signs that certainly perk up drivers.

Hot Chick-a-Latte has four shops in the Seattle area, but this is the first one in Denver; a similar company, Perky Cups, opened a store in Aurora last fall. (No one from Hot Chick-a-Latte returned calls seeking comment.)

And don't confuse it with Chicka Latte Beautiful Coffee, also from the Seattle area, which offers a slightly more classed up version of the same thing.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
