Chimney Fire Coffee is a B Corp™ Certified speciality coffee roastery, nestled in the Surrey Hills. We work hard to bring our customers coffee to suit every taste that supports ethical and eco-friendly practices, all the way from farm to cup. We buy our coffee directly from growers and producers in 11 countries, use 100% compostable & recyclable packaging across our range & deliver social impact through donations to Re-Cycle, a small charity who refurbish bikes in the UK and send them to rural communities in Africa.
We’ll soon be a team of nine, so this is a great opportunity to join a growing company where you can make a real impact.
We're on the lookout for the right person to support our production team and receive great exposure to all aspects of coffee, from sourcing to roasting to cupping to brewing.
As a production assistant, you will be required to assist in all things picking and packing. Help out any customer walk-ins, who want to collect an order, purchase a bag of coffee from our Roastery shop, or want to know a little more about what we do. Support our roasters with their roasting preparations each morning, as well as help set up our coffee cuppings, where we assess each batch we roast.
Experience in coffee is not a requirement, however, values that align with the mission of the company are essential. On-the-job training will be provided, but a passion for coffee is key, as you’ll be involved in each step of the process.
