Head Barista - Boston Tea Party


Tucked down an alley off the Barnstaple high-street, our lovely characterful building is filled with equally lovely characters. It’s home to our upbeat, quirky team who aim to create a welcoming and friendly vibe for all.  Working here is always fun and you’ll go home not only enjoying having been part of an awesome team serving top notch food & drink, but also knowing you’ve contributed to making someone’s day.

We're looking for a Head Barista to join our team in Barnstaple.

Our people work at BTP because they share our values of empathy, fairness, curiosity, determination, resourcefulness, positivity & humour. 

As a Head Barista you will need to demonstrate these values daily by being flexible & working where the café needs you most to deliver the best experience for our customers, as well as a great day at work for your team. 

Our Head Barista’s own the bar & ensure that every barista in the team completes the crop to cup journey with real integrity. They love working with top notch equipment and high quality products and understanding how to best look after both these things and continuing to inspire their teams to deliver our amazing and delicious drinks menu to our customers.

Please note that moustaches are not mandatory.

We want you to feel valued and we provide amazing training (including the professional SCA qualification) so you’ll be learning constantly and if you want to progress you’ll know how.  You’ll share passion and personality with our customers, so that they love BTP as much as we do.

Our cafes are brilliant places to be in.  We deliver phenomenal coffee and teas and incredible ethically sourced food, but what really makes us ‘us’, is our people.

This is a great opportunity to get stuck in and learn loads of skills with a company that never tires of trying to improve how we do things for our teams, customers and the communities which we are part of.  After all our purpose is Making Things Better.
