Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen's mission is to provide each of their guests with a sensational five-minute break in their crazy New York day. They have created a bright, modern and welcoming space, inspired by the trendy beach cafes of Sydney and the craftsman culture of Brooklyn. They offer the highest quality coffee and food program in the city modeled on the quintessential laid-back and unpretentious Australian café experience. Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen was named in Zagat’s Top 10 Hottest Cafes in New York City for 2017.

Their coffee program is off-the-hook. They have invested in cutting-edge tools to make sure the guests get the best coffee possible, every time. For the coffee nerds out there, they were the first café in NYC to have the latest La Marzocco Linea PB with Auto-Brew-Ratio scales in the drip tray (say what!), and Mahlkonig Peak grinders! They also have a pour-over program, batch-brew and cold-brew using our EK-43. They feature guest roasters such as Tandem from Maine and George Howell from Boston.


Merriweather Coffee + Kitchen is recruiting a professional and dedicated personality who wishes to progress their skills and knowledge whilst bringing their own passion and enthusiasm for coffee and hospitality to a quickly growing new cafe. Applicants should be able to prove their experience in a similar environment and enjoy chatting with our hundreds of regulars who treat our staff like family.

A very competitive rate of pay is on offer (a Food Handler’s Certificate gets you bonus points, too), as well as working with a determined, passionate, enthusiastic and professional team with excellent working conditions on the best equipment in the city. They also offer shift meals and unlimited coffee. You are the center of the business, and they will treat you accordingly. You will be empowered to make your own decisions that create the best overall experience for the guests.
