Now Hiring Coffee Pirates

Job Type: PT Barista Listed: 7/11/19

Sunflower Espresso is looking for a new member of our mobile café team. Our new barista will join a crew that prides itself on excellent service, heavenly coffee, and a genuine love for our customers.

Our coffee bus serves multiple times per week in the Wichita area, all year long. We use Kansas-roasted coffee, bake our own pastries, and serve everywhere – from Strong Man competitions to food truck rallies to weddings.

To be a Sunflower barista, you’ll need to not only create delicious coffee in all weather conditions, but also drive and set up the bus, and creatively solve problems. You don’t need to have barista or professional driving experience to apply; we’ll teach you the quirks of both the bus and the espresso machine. However, expect to work mornings and on weekends, often in a crowded bus with several coworkers.

Ideal Candidates will also have:

  • passion for coffee
  • a valid, unrestricted Kansas driver’s license and reliable transportation
  • excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • the ability to work in all weather conditions – from winter to hot summer
  • the ability to bend, twist, and lift up to 50 pounds
  • patience for working with customers to create their perfect drink, without patronizing or judging them
  • passion for a job well done
  • mega multi-tasking skills, and the ability to think creatively

If you’ve got passion for coffee and creating meaningful relationships with our customers, and if you want to be part of an excellent local food truck family, please apply!

Local makeover: Best Fringe Forever

One of the best things about being a local small business is getting to know other small business owners. There’s no END to the creativity Wichita’s business owners bring to the table.

Case in point: the owners of Wichita’s rad mobile photo booth Lamphouse Photo Company have started another business renting out some of their killer décor: Best Fringe Forever. We saw them asking for locations to display their fabulous fringe recently and volunteered the coffee bus!

Conan and Katherine came through with a beautiful fringe to decorate Telulah bus. We had a complete makeover, and absolutely no damage to the bus’ paint job.

Please enjoy these fun photos we took at the last Food Trucks at the Fountain rally, and consider using Best Fringe Forever to dress up your next party.
