Hello all! A little bit about us. We are on the verge of opening a new venue. It’s a recast pub on a leafy street between Dalston and Islington, we have divided the space into a wine bar and a coffee shop with a really nice garden.

It’s a place to listen to records, drink fairly priced wine and enjoy a coffee. It’s a sun-drenched (whenever the sun shines) and expansive space with high ceilings, so it makes for a lovely daytime spot! We’ll be serving excellent coffee with a focus on pour overs and guest roasters from across the UK and Europe.

We are looking for a number of people to join our founding team. This job description is for a Barista, but if you feel like this isn’t completely you and are still keen to work with us, then shoot us a message with your resume and we’ll get back to you.

As Barista you will be front and centre of our daily coffee operations and your interactions with guests will be key to their experience. You will have a passion for specialty coffee and be keen to develop your knowledge within an experienced and passionate team. You will have the opportunity to input on our coffee program from the start. You need to be a morning person because you’ll be opening doors on the days that you work.

We are keen to build a team with a diverse range of experiences and interests. The business is multifaceted and will launch with many side roles with potential to develop into full-time positions. If you have interests in wine, music, the arts, events, social media, design, or really anything not listed here then let us know in your application! Responsibilities:
