Want to come on board?

We really appreciate your interest in joining our team! Appalachian Coffee Company only hires baristas who genuinely care about coffee and the people to whom we serve it. Our baristas are energetic, engaged, reliable, in true need of a job (not a coffee hobby), respectful and compassionate to the team and our customers, and authentically joyful in their disposition. We work hard, communicate, care, strive for continual growth and improvement, support one-another, and have a little fun along the way. If this sounds like a good fit for you, and you really want to be part of our small but mighty staff, please fill out the application below and we'll be in touch!

How to Apply

We need three things from you before we schedule an interview:

  1. A fully completed BARISTA APPLICATION, which you will find below.
  2. Your RESUME with information about your education, work history, skills, etc.
  3. A COVER LETTER --- your chance to express yourself outside of the "nuts-and-bolts" of the resume and application.

The Barista Application is a form which will be sent to us when you click submit below. Please note that all fields are required so you will be unable to submit the form if anything is left blank.

The Resume and Cover Letter should be sent directly to General Manager, Luke Costlow, at luke@appalachiancoffeecompany.com. The Cover Letter can be put into the body of the email with the resume attached as a .pdf, .doc, or Google Doc file.
