    Playboy Looking for 'Women of Starbucks'
    Fri Feb 28, 9:26 AM ET

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Lattes aren't the only steamy things at Starbucks these days.

    Much to the chagrin of Seattle-based Starbucks Corp, Playboy Magazine has issued an alert: "Calling all coffee-making cuties!" to pose nude for an upcoming issue featuring the "Women of Starbucks."

    With the application process already percolating, the chain of more than 6,200 coffee shops worldwide, is anything but thrilled with the cattle call by the adult magazine to its coffee-making employees, known as baristas.

    The company has offered a frosty statement: "Starbucks Coffee Company is aware that Playboy Enterprises has issued a call for entries for a 'Women of Starbucks' section in a future magazine. Starbucks is not affiliated with this project and does not endorse it. All further inquiries should be directed to the contact at Playboy, Theresa Hennessey."

    Hennessey, at Playboy Enterprises Inc's Chicago headquarters, said the magazine was already getting a lot of submissions for the issue. "Starbucks is such a big part of American pop culture, and Playboy is always trying to stay on top of the latest trend, so it seemed like a natural fit, especially with all the beautiful women there," she said.

    In recent years, Playboy has scored big with other corporate-themed pictorials such as "The Women of Enron" as well as 7-Eleven.
