I like my coffee like I like my men.” Be it tall hot and steamy, gentle frothed or creamy, there are too many bad puns and innuendos on standby with the increasing coffee culture. And what better way is there to start up your day than with the best brew handed to you by SA’s hottest barista. Yes, it’s real, thanks to Cosmopolitan SA.


Nominations streamed in to make the cut-off date last month. Fans simply had to post a picture of who they deemed the hottest barista in SA on Instagram and tag it with #COSMOSAHottestbarista. Rumor has it that Luigi from Shift and Dan from Firebird Coffee are the favourites. Photo shoots and interviews are underway, so you’ll soon have plenty to drool about. These will then be published in the magazine where you can vote for your mister ‘McSteamy’.

In the meantime, visit their website or perv on Instagram @cosmopolitansa using the #COSMOSAHottestbarista.

Who do you think deserves the COSMO 2016 Hottest Barista title? Here’s to hoping that the coffee is as hot as the man. A caffeine fix with a charming smile goes a long way.
