Caffè Terra was born from a family business that has been roasting coffee in Italy since 1921. After nearly a century in the game, Caffè Terra, with your help, will be bringing its bold blends and tantalizing food to the streets of London. Our first store will be opening in Rathbone Square in January 2019, with other Central London locations to follow very soon! This is a very exciting time in the history of the Caffè Terra brand and we would be thrilled to have you on board as part of our diverse work family.

Join us in time for our launch and have the benefit of being trained directly by our team coming in from Italy! You will be able to access to our endless knowledge about our world-class coffee and our rich international history, and how we are part of the next wave of the coffee generation. You will become a master at grinding, pressing and pulling the perfect espresso and impressing all our discerning coffee connoisseurs. You will learn how our fresh and natural food menu perfectly complements our earthy undertones. Your skills set will become wider as you develop into your role. You will learn, you will grow, you will progress. There will be plenty of opportunity for self-development and career progression in our work family.
