What was formerly the drive-thru bikini barista coffee joint Blendz has a new name, a new color and a new image.
The coffee stand at 212th and 44th (technically in Lynnwood) has been known for having bikini baristas. That all changed recently when the location was sold. The place was sold in July but the new owner just recently had a new green paint job on the place, renamed it to ‘Headrush’ and changed up the barista uniform.
Headrush now touts itself as ‘family friendly’ and even gives out free cocoa to kids. They are even serving coffee from their MLT neighbors across the street, Urban City Coffee.
At an intersection that is crowded with coffee alternatives (Headrush, Urban City, Morning Shot, Starbucks in Albertson’s) it will be interesting to see what the change does for business. While some people will surely welcome the change, others may have frequented them because of what set them apart.
On this Friday morning, I went with Headrush and it was pretty good.
