Coffee experience a must. Interest in quality beer and wine highly desirable. If you have the initiative to improve your knowledge when times are slow and the moxie to work through busy times solo, you will love this sunlight-filled space in a store that is young enough to afford you room to grow and contribute ideas, but established enough to enjoy a crowd of smart and friendly regulars. Openings are rare for this small staff so apply sooner rather than later!
