  • A customer-centric approach.
  • Ability to work both collaboratively and alone as needed.

Optional skills we value (not essential but welcome):

  • Bachelor’s degree in marketing or equivalent qualifications.
  • Understanding of the printing system and creation of physical goods.
  • Experience with CMS/Ecomm platforms (ex. WordPress/Shopify)

Our crew and our customers

A quick FYI on the people you would work with… our team and our customers.

Our wonderful and widely spread staff are both the beating heart and the backbone of our success. Many of our team members were there at ground zero when we were roasting in a little tin shed, and the fact that a steady number of them are celebrating 10+ years in the business is testament to why. why they like to come to work every day. Our team brings a wide range of skills from electronic engineers, web developers, theater majors and CPAs to jazz drummers, former teachers and globally recognized coffee professionals.

Our wholesale customers are made up of a wide range of people, spread across our vast brown earth, building businesses in the hospitality industry serving high quality specialty coffee. While they hustle on the cutting edge, we’re here to support all things coffee…at a highly refined level of quality assurance of their Eggs Benedict. They are primarily independent owner/operators who treat coffee as the core of their business, investing in quality equipment, preparation and service.

And while we are looking for a talented individual ready to make a difference in the world of specialty coffee. We also embrace diversity and are an equal opportunity employer offering a flexible, family-friendly workplace where cooperation, collegiality and communication are keys to our success.
