Detail-Oriented: Ensures the coffee shop is well-presented, maintaining high standards in both coffee and food quality.

Skill Sets

Operational Management: Takes full ownership of the coffee shop, ensuring day-to-day practices are maintained, including coffee and food quality, financial systems and processes, customer experience, health & safety, and food hygiene & allergen practices.

Coffee Expertise: Ensures the team consistently serves superb coffee, including espresso, filter, and pour-over, while continuously developing their own coffee knowledge.

Financial Acumen: Understands profitability, cost management, and financial elements essential for running a profitable coffee shop.
