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.
