Groundwork Coffee specializes in batch-roasted, certified organic coffees and artisanal teas. From our humble roots as a rare book store and cafe back in 1990, Groundwork would go on to become one of the first certified organic coffee roasters in Southern California, as well as the largest organic coffee roaster in Los Angeles. A truly local pioneer in fair trade and fairly traded coffee and tea sourcing, we remain committed to sustainable business practices, including maintaining direct relationships with growers and importers who promote responsible coffee and tea production. From the ground up, Groundwork is steadfast in its commitment to the values of quality, sustainability and community.
We are looking to hire an outgoing, energetic, and tenaciously community-centric Barista to join our growing team and jump-start their career. Leveraging your knowledge and experience in specialty coffee, tea, and drink preparation, you'll wear many hats and be exposed to various facets of third-wave café operations. As a Groundwork Barista, you will be well-versed on manual espresso equipment and our organic product offerings, and take pride in producing the highest quality beverages while also displaying a willingness to strive for continual growth and improvement. If you love interacting with customers over a great a cup of coffee (or tea), embody a friendly and welcoming attitude, and are enthusiastic about your perfecting your craft, then please apply today!
