BARISTA

Customers will come for the coffee, but they stay (and come back) for the baristas. That’s because our baristas put customer experience first; every drink is served with a personal touch. It might be a bit of latte art, wiping a table for a guest, or just remembering their name when they walk in. In a nutshell, we’re looking for staff who work with intention, who care about the details, and who can crank out drinks during a rush with less than a bead of sweat to show for it.
