BARISTA (1026 Valencia St.)
Ritual Coffee is seeking a hard-working and enthusiastic barista to create experiences that change the way people know coffee. We are looking for that special someone who is dedicated to customer service, teamwork, and quality to work in our Flagship cafe on Valencia Street in The Mission.
As our new barista, you do not need to know our exact systems and techniques before you start, but you need to be self-aware and humble and able to jump in, be helpful, and problem-solve where needed. People who do not take initiative, who are not customer-oriented, not open to feedback, nor passionate about coffee need not apply. You are meant for this role if you are a team player with a strong interest in and appreciation for coffee quality.
Ultimately, we are looking for someone with a talent for people, coffee, and supporting coworkers and who is wholeheartedly enthusiastic about growing with our business. If this is you, we can’t wait to meet you!
ABOUT US: RITUAL IS CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE KNOW COFFEE.
In 2005, when corporate coffee dominated American culture, Ritual unknowingly started a fun and exciting revolution that would ultimately help launch the new coffee movement.
We buy 90+% of our beans from producer partners that we have relationships with, setting the highest standard â€¨in the industry. This makes sure we get our hands on the best beans in the world, but more importantly, makes sure our farmers maintain the quality of life they deserve.
Now a bona fide San Francisco original, we also earned our iconic status as one of the best coffee roasting companies in the world. The mission of Ritual Coffee is simple: to make people happy by giving them the best coffee experience they’ve ever had. Ritual roasts in SoMa, and has cafes in San Francisco and Napa.
