Salary Type:

A trip to the Bahamas, a designer wardrobe and superpowers? Well, we can’t quite manage that. But we have got a great role for a Head Barista for one of the best known, best loved speciality coffee shops in London.

Put your cape back in the drawer. We’ll get you a real role. This is a Head Barista role that isn’t going to be for everyone.

You will be the type of barista that loves the hands-on craft of actually preparing and serving coffee. Enjoys working in a focused environment of just one cafe, full-time, to allow you to implement, quality control, and maintain every detail of what Attendant does with coffee. We want someone who produces excellent coffee at least 5 days out of 7.

Your role will be that of a collaborative one with the Head of Coffee. Coffee is what you do. It’s your profession and obsession! We are looking for someone who; if they’re not making coffee, is training our team or probably researching it. We want a coffee nut who is constantly on the pursuit for How can I make it better next time? Every day you continue to develop and understand the coffees that you are working with better; searching for each great bean’s sweet spot, and trying to understand how to deliver it more consistently.

You will obviously be working in a team so need to be a team player. The standard cafe life cleaning routine presents the opportunity, to get those skills out that your mum taught you growing up, as there are dishes etc that don’t clean themselves.

About you:

  • A minimum of 1.5 year as a barista in specialty coffee.
  • Be able dial in a variety of coffees for both espresso and filter for optimal extraction and flavour.
  • Good organisation skills.
  • Experience in a fast paced environment.
  • Be able to produce consistently high quality textured milk and pour top notch latte art.
  • Knowledge of manual brewing.
