Fitted together, a new Louise, now greets customers at the East Colfax Avenue coffee house bearing her name. She debuted in a frosted red wig and slinky orange dress. But like her predecessor she will change outfits each day as she stands at the corner of Colfax and Elm Street, enticing customers like the coffee slut she’s supposed to be.

May he roast in Hell.
Meanwhile, may proprietors Dan Gundlach and Bill Sylvester continue to roast or grind or whatever they do to produce a fine cup of Joe.

She’ll be standing closer to the front door, promised Gundlach, tethered to an enormous chain.
