Find Out Why “Java Juggs” Makes Twice As Much As Normal Coffee Stands

The owner of two bikini coffee stands in Washington recently caught the attention of police when she raked in more than $2 million in just three years. When cops investigated, they were shocked by what they found…

The owner, a former stripper named Carmela Panico, was actually running drive-thru brothels under the guise of her coffee shops. According to The Blaze, the bikini-clad baristas would show their breasts and genitals and charge extra for sex acts, which they would happily perform.

Panico’s main coffee stand, Java Juggs, was equipped with a stripper pole. One former barista there claimed she made over half a million dollars from working at the stands.

Panico, 52, has been charged with money laundering and prostitution, but she claims that she got out of the coffee business and sold most of her stands over the past year. Police, however, aren’t buying her innocence for a second. The local paper had this to say about her operation:

“She bought property and coffee huts with other cash, sometimes bringing along a money counter to dole out the bills. Her baristas reported making hundreds of thousands of dollars out of her stands, working mainly for tips. The women told cops the price for a cup of coffee started at $6 and customers typically paid with a $20 bill. The baristas kept the rest to shake their breasts or expose their genitals. They charged more for sex acts with the droves of men who stopped at the stands, mainly located along Highway 99 in Snohomish County.”

The coffee shop busts have also brought other scandals to Snohomish County. A veteran sheriff’s sergeant, Darrell O’Neill, is facing charges for tipping off Panico and her baristas to the ongoing police investigation. The 30 year veteran of the force pled not guilty to all charges, but he resigned from his post.
