Job Details
Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen, an independent Australian-owned all-day cafe in the West Village, is looking for a new barista/hospitality specialist! We would love someone who is experienced in specialty coffee and can bring some positive vibes to our corner of West Village. Merriweather is owner-operated and has a happy team in our beloved neighborhood cafe!

Barista Position: We are recruiting a skilled barista who wishes to bring their own passion and enthusiasm for coffee and hospitality to a high-volume fun cafe filled with amazing regular customers. We have a large and highly popular food program, so not only do you need to be handy behind the espresso machine, but we need customer focused hospitality pros who can manage a crowd, get delivery and online orders out the door efficiently and hustle to do whatever is necessary to have a successful day, every day.

You should be able to:

- Have one day of weekend availablity

- Prove your experience in a similar environment, including latte art

- Be very fast, efficient, clean and work very well under continuous pressure

- Enjoy chatting with our hundreds of regulars who treat our staff like family

- Be an assertive team player who can stay on top of all the necessary tasks, such as cleaning tables, doing dishes, restocking and managing orders

A very competitive rate of pay is on offer (a Food Handler's Certificate gets you bonus points, too), as well as working with a determined, passionate, enthusiastic and professional team with excellent working conditions on the best equipment in the city. Also we offer shift meals and all the coffee you can drink. You are the center of our business, and we will treat you accordingly. You will be empowered to make your own decisions that create the best overall experience for our guests.

Our full-time team benefits from Medical Insurance, Dental Insurance, Vision, 401K and discounts.

We're an equal-opportunity employer. All applicants will be considered for employment without attention to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation.

About us:  Our mission is to provide each of our guests with a sensational five-minute break in their crazy New York day. We have created a bright, modern and welcoming space, inspired by the beautiful beach cafes of Sydney. We offer the one of the highest quality coffee and food programs in the city modeled on the quintessential laid-back and unpretentious Australian café experience.

Our coffee program is off-the-hook. We are partnered with Counter Culture as our main roaster and also feature guest roasters such as Tandem from Maine and Black & White from North Carolina. We have invested in cutting-edge tools to make sure our guests get the best coffee possible, every time. 

Not a coffee nerd but love people and hospitality? Great, we want you too (but you've got to love coffee). Our amazing in-house coffee training is also complemented by our partnership with Counter Culture and their Counter Intelligence coffee training program offered to all our baristas.
