Hinkler:I think the problem is a matter of idealogy. For instance, at Hot Bikini Beans we serve fresh locally brewed coffee but we also sell sex appeal. So, while you drive up and order your double-shot hot vanilla latte, you also have a shot at looking at our double-hot vanilla hotte's...those two...

Hot Bikini Beans is a web based Dark Comedy series created by Degenerate Life in association with Vanjam Productions LLC. Episodes are available to view on YouTube. The show centers around the employee's at a coffee stand that serves hot and cold beverages with the added visual appeal of bikini-clad baristas, Cassie and Robin. Between the array of misfits and eccentric characters that frequent the coffee stand and the constant scheming of their buffoonish, inept yet ambitious Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist of a manager, named Hinkler, there is never a dull moment at Hot Bikini Beans.


This series contains examples of:

  • Addled Addict: The character called Sugar is a walking example of this.
    Sugar:Just high on life...and meth...
  • Aluminium Christmas Trees: Examples include:
    • Hot Bikini Beans is a Bikini Coffee Stand which is popular in the Midwest but is otherwise not a form of espresso on-the-go that people may be familiar.
    • In Episode 2, Cassie reveals that she goes to "Sleep Dentistry," which is an actual thing that exists for people who have anxiety about going to the dentist.
  • The Barnum: Hinkler fits the bill though he would prefer to see himself as a Con Man or Hustler
  • Comedic Sociopathy: The whole series features people with darkly humorous quirks and personalities. It is difficult to pinpoint a Straight Man
  • Crapsack World: Played for Laughs in tone throughout the series.
  • Dumb Blonde: Subverted by the character Cassie.
  • Fanservice: The show is set at a coffee stand where the baristas are wearing bikini's.
Hinkler:Oh give me a break, Cassie, don't think I don't know about "Titty Tuesday's". You keep that up and someone's gonna call the cops.
Cassie:The cops LOVE Titty Tuesday's!
  • Jerkass: The character's Hinkler and Clyde.
  • Not Using the "Z" Word: Basic premise of Episode 4 which features meth-craving customers who assemble outside the stand in a very Romero-esque fashion
  • The Peeping Tom: Represented by the character James in Episode One.
  • Running Gag:
    • References to the meth in the sugar from Episode Four onwards
    • Characters often reference Dome lids.
  • Stalker with a Crush this is the definition of the character Spencer, which has a significant impact on events later on in the first season.
  • Surprise Incest:Episode 5 reveals that Hinkler, in a drunken state, ordered a hooker only to discover to his horror the next morning that the prostitute was in fact his cousin Francis!
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: Hinkler.
  • The Woobie:This would be Nathan. Arguably the most sympathetic character in the first season of the series.

How well does it match the trope?
