We are looking to recruit an experienced barista. Working full time and fully flexible in our busy Cafe on the stunning seafront of Bray.
The primary function of our perfect barista is to make and serve coffee drinks. Baristas take and prepare orders and usually need to make several drinks at the same time, which requires the ability to multitask. In addition to strong customer service skills, our baristas need to be able to listen carefully to customer orders and prepare drinks correctly.
Being a barista is definitely more complicated than flipping on the automatic coffee maker. Baristas must have ability to learn recipes for Finnbees specialty coffee drinks, as well as how to use equipment such as automated espresso machines. They might need to choose and grind coffee beans or educate customers on coffee products. Our baristas serve bakery items; and also prepare food, such as sandwiches or salads.
When not serving coffee, baristas are also responsible for keeping the shop clean and sanitary. They clean and organize preparation areas, clean tables and floors, empty garbage and maintain restrooms. Baristas also might stock supplies, both in front of and behind the counter, and monitor food safety within the shop. Baristas are also trained in principles of food storage, safety and proper food handling.
