Coffee with an unusual twist

It's no cup of regular coffee.

Donald Crabtree wants to open a topless coffee shop.

The planning board in the small central Maine town of Vassalboro is due to consider his business permit application today.

Some in the town feel the prospect of half-naked waitresses will attract needed business.

Others oppose the java joint, saying topless coffee isn't the sort of trade they want to offer in their town.
