Barista/ Host
Welles Street, Christchurch
Casual - Part Time - Full Time
01 March 2019
Coffee Supreme Welles Street is our newly reopened Christchurch flagship. After closing our beloved Supreme Supreme in late 2018, we went back to the drawing board. We know that great coffee means little without a team of friendly faces to peddle it - so we are on the hunt for a group of Christchurch’s best hospitality pro’s.

After years of doing this kinda thing, we’ve learnt that coffee quality shouldn’t come at the expense of approachability and service - it should be fun, engaging and honest. We have always believed hospitality and generosity form the backbone of any good coffee experience and we’re after talented people to feel the same way.

We want to give you the opportunity to help build an iconic cafe in the heart of Christchurch’s most exciting precincts, to learn as much as you can and to be a part of New Zealand’s leading coffee roaster.

Some of the main duties are:
  • Greeting and serving customers
  • Taking orders and using the POS system
  • Producing espresso and brewed coffee to the highest standards, using Supreme's approved techniques.
  • Delivering food and coffee to the table
  • Clearing tables and other standard cafe tasks
The successful applicant will:
  • Be a fan of the Coffee Supreme brand and its core values.
  • Be an experienced and confident coffee maker.
  • Have an in-depth knowledge of specialty coffee, and have a desire to share this knowledge with others
  • Provide warm, engaging and generous customer service.
  • Work well in a team and build a positive team culture.
  • Be reliable and punctual and set that expectation in your team.
  • Represent the Coffee Supreme brand well at all times
  • Work hard, hustle, and have a lot of energy.
  • Have a positive can-do attitude.
We have a mixture of roles in our new space - from casual to full-time. Coffee experience is helpful but not completely essential - if you love looking after people and creating memorable experiences, send your CV and a cover letter to [email protected]
