Shirtless Baristas Make Your Caffeine Dreams Come True

And it’s all for a good good cause

Julia Morgan

Move over sweaty firemen, the hottest male-centric calendar for 2017 features hipster baristas who aren't afraid of bear it all for a good cause."Hot Shots" is a local project spearheaded by Chelsea Keeney and Julia Morgan that dropped just in time for holiday shopping. The sisters, coffee aficionados themselves, came up with the idea of a sexy barista calendar (with an irreverent sense of humor) to promote our local coffee scene but also to support women in the coffee industry through the International Women's Coffee Alliance (IWCA). The organization supports women's involvement in coffee from seed to cup with the goal of empowering women in the international coffee community to achieve meaningful and sustainable lives.

In the pages of the calendar, you'll find steamy images of coffee slingers from Amethyst, Aviano, Black Eye, Corvus, Crema Little Owl, Lula Rose, Middle State, Pablo's, Port Side, Prodigy, and Thump. These spots also serve as retail outlets for the calendars, but you can also order them online.

An 8.5 x 11, spiral bound calendar will set you back $25. Holiday cards with individual baristas are also available for $5. With every Hot Shot purchase, a donation to IWCA is made.
