The De Beauvoir Deli is a fine food store and takeaway selling a mix of artisan gourmet groceries alongside homemade breakfast and lunch treats. Coffee is a hugely important element of the business, and we’ve managed to sustain excellent sales during covid, since the installation of a service hatch which is continuing to attract long queues during the latest lockdown. All front of house staff have, until now, worked in generic roles covering all sections of the shop and takeaway, so this will be a new specialist role covering 5 morning shifts a week. The successful applicant will be responsible for overseeing the coffee side of the business, including the training of new staff and looking after equipment, a La Marzocco Linea and Mazzer Robur electronic. We are looking for a highly experienced barista, willing and able to work in a busy, non-coffee-centric environment with lots going on besides. They must be comfortable working at high volume to an excellent standard alongside the rest of our team, with a smile on their face. The position will appeal to someone with a broad interest in food and drink, as there will inevitably be moments away from the coffee machine and the opportunity to gain knowledge in other areas of the business, such as cheese and wine. The successful candidate will be joining a great team, including some excellent baristas. If you’d like to apply, pleas attach a CV and covering note outlining your suitability for the position.
