Job Details
 West Town Bakery is looking for serious baristas with experience on a semi-manual espresso machine to work our Dark Matter coffee bar and behind our retail bakery counter! We are looking to start training immediately. Experience pouring latte art is required. This is NOT an entry level position. We are looking for baristas who can bring their skills to the table and raise our level of service. We need solid team players who work hard, fast and get the job done.

The barista is the face of our bakery. You will be selling a wide variety of our baked goods from cakes and cakeballs, to croissants, to lemon bars and loaves of bread. You will be responsible for tasting all of the items and being able to describe them, in detail to guest; making suggesting and pairings when called upon. You will be producing all of the coffee based and alcoholic beverages for our diner as well as answering the phone and taking to-go orders. This is not a coffee shop but a full service restaurant. You are also directly responsible for the brew and sale of coffee, baristas have the opportunity to share each coffee's unique story and flavor on behalf of growers and the entire Dark Matter Coffee Company.

Forming good guest relationships is vital to creating repeat customers, or "regulars."

Baristas should be able to recommend coffees based on guest preferences as well as their own favorites, and answer most questions about coffee. While reading and studying facts about coffee are important, there is a certain aspect of coffee knowledge that is only obtained by tasting different varieties or brews and noting the distinctions among them. Do this often, and even if a given coffee is not your favorite, seek positive ways to describe flavors.

Currently staffing for morning, weekday, evenings and all weekend shifts. Must be able to start as early at 6AM. Must have an Illinois Food Service Handler's and BASSET certificate. Looking to make immediate hires.
Compensation details

Subsidized health insurance, dental insurance, 401k, employee discount cards, paid paternal leave and more.
