Baristas Launches Baristos Breakfast and Lunch Burritos Initially to All Locations in Washington

New Expanded Menu to Have Immediate Positive Impact on Revenues

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Dec 1, 2015) - Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. (OTCQB: BCCI), "Seattle's World Famous Costume Coffee" announced that today it has launched a new breakfast and lunch offering called the "Baristo". The Baristo is a line of specially prepared breakfast and lunch burritos that are made with only freshly prepared ingredients. Initially the breakfast Baristo is made with eggs, sausage, and cheese while the lunch Baristo is a cheeseburger and fries adaptation. Both versions are available now at all Washington locations and the company has plans to expand the offering to its other states as well.

CEO Barry Henthorn commented: "We have been looking for a healthy food offering that would not only taste great but also be a real value for our customers. We believe that the Baristos are the perfect combination of fresh ingredients in an easy to eat in the car form factor, and a healthy alternative to traditional fast food. The Baristo is the result of Baristas testing several options and was the hands down favorite. I encourage anyone to stop by any of our Washington Baristas locations and try this delicious food product."

The release of the Baristo kicks off Baristas newest initiative to expand the brand and product offerings of the Baristas Coffee Company in conjunction with its current acquisition and expansion plans. 

Baristas has had a remarkable year to date and has accomplished several significant milestones that will allow the Company to further its growth and complete its listing on the NASDAQ Capital Markets. Most notably Baristas has completed audited financials, filed and gone effective with a registration statement with the SEC, and moved from a non-reporting Company trading on the Pink Sheets to a fully reporting Company that is now traded on the OTCQB. Baristas has also complied with virtually all corporate governance requirements recently establishing an independent board of directors and audit committee in preparation for up listing to the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company has also established an infrastructure capable of meeting the increased reporting requirements associated with being traded on a senior exchange.

Baristas has identified a select group of acquisition targets ranging from single locations to multi-unit systems that it is now in a position to move forward with. Baristas is also considering acquiring complimentary business that will assist in aiding the supply chain such as regional roasters and other established retail brands and distribution systems.

About Baristas Coffee Company (BCCI): Headquartered in the Seattle, Washington area, Baristas Coffee Company, Inc. was formed to create a national brand of drive-thru espresso stands. BCCI is accomplishing this by acquiring established businesses that fit its model, opening new locations, and by franchising. Baristas has separated itself from the competition with its "theme" of joining attractive female baristas in entertaining costumes preparing the finest beverages available on the market. Baristas also now offers single serve for retail distribution. Baristas can currently be found in seven greater Seattle area locations as well as in Florida, and Montana. Your state, Coming Soon!
