I manage a coffeeshop in Peoria, IL (central IL) and we're looking for either part-time or full-time help.
We are the areas only "third-wave" coffee shop and are looking to continue pursuing quality as we battle the midwestern (or american) mindset that bigger/darker is better. We roast our own coffee, have a pour-over bar, do chemex and french press, and make a variety of iced and hot espresso based beverages on our La Marzocco Linea.
If there is anyone in the area or wants to move to the area ( we do have two colleges in town) who is experienced or just cares to become experienced in the coffee industry please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
While I am not looking for a job, I am originally from Pekin. I am a barista working in Michigan and I just wanted to wish you good luck! That is a hard area to be a barista in. Next time I am in the area I will stop in!
