In Call of Duty DMZ, you can obtain various keys granting access to locked buildings, containers, and loot caches. The Barista's Bag Key unlocks a specific duffle bag found on the Vondel map. However, you need to know where this duffle bag is located and acquire the Barista's Bag Key to unlock it. Thankfully, I found a couple of these keys, and you can follow some of the methods I used to obtain one quickly. Here's how to get and use the Barista's Bag Key in Call of Duty DMZ.
Barista's Bag Key Map Location - DMZ
The Barista's Bag Key can unlock a duffle bag inside a cafe shop at the Mall POI. This cafe is situated in map sector F4, and you can check the white circle on the image above to see the exact location. You must visit this location with the Barista's Bag Key in your backpack to use and unlock the duffle bag.

After reaching the cafe at the Mall POI in the F4 map sector, you need to search for the Barista's Bag. This duffle bag is located inside the cafe on the right-hand side. Use the Barista's Bag Key to unlock the duffle bag; inside, you'll find the Stage Bag Key. The Stage Bag Key is quite rare in DMZ, and you can use it at two different locations on Vondel to get essential items like the GPU.

How to get the Barista's Bag Key - DMZ
I used a few methods to get the Barista's Bag Key, as this item is part of a key loot chain to unlock rare items like the GPU. You can obtain Barista's Bag Key key easily by following the process in DMZ Season 4.
First, you need the Mayor's Briefcase Key that unlocks a small case at the City Hall POI. The Mayor's Briefcase is located at map sector G3, and inside this case, you will find the Windmill Bag Key. The Windmill Bag is situated on the top floor of the building at map sector E7 near the Stadium POI. Use the Windmill Bag Key to unlock it, and from here, you'll get the Barista's Bag Key. Check the image above to see the loot unlocked by the Windmill Bag Key. This is the easiest and most sure-fire way of obtaining the Barista's Bag Key in DMZ.

The other way to obtain this key is by looting on the Vondel map as you play. Your best bet is to complete HVT Contracts, as High-Value Targets tend to drop keys more often. Likewise, I'd recommend searching every loot cache, container, shelf, supply drop, clothes, and everything else to find keys in DMZ. As you can see from the image above, I obtained another Barista's Bag Key randomly by searching through clothes. You can also obtain keys from other operators by eliminating them and collecting them from their backpacks. Repeat the process in every match to increase your key collection in DMZ.
Is the Barista's Bag Key worth it in DMZ?
The Barista's Bag Key is absolutely worth getting in DMZ, as you'll get the Stage Bag Key from the duffle bag. If you plan to unlock the third Insured Slot, you will need to find exceptionally rare items like GPUs, Gold Bars, and Gold Skulls. I obtained around 10 GPUs simply by unlocking both the Stage Bags on the Vondel map and all of it started with the Barista's Bag Key. I would recommend using the Barista's Bag Key in three different matches to get three Stage Bag Keys and extract from the map as soon as you have the item.
