Recommended Posts

Many people know Qualia Coffee as one of the best coffee shops in DC, but it is also the home of Fresh Off the Roast, a boutique-scale roasting label with ambitions of national stature. At Fresh Off the Roast, we have one of the most technically advanced store-front roasting operations in the country with a laser focus on the quality and freshness of our beans. We also source distinctive single-origin coffees from around the world, offering a dozen or more varieties at a time. We sell all of our beans within three days of roast and all our brewed coffee within one week of roast.

We are looking for a roasting apprentice who will be able to work 4-5 days a week to learn the art and science of roasting. Candidates should have a passion for their work, the curiosity to learn new things, the malleability to take direction and the attention span to focus on one task at a time. Formal coffee experience is not necessary, but a love of coffee is.

The Details:

  • This is a salaried position with room for advancement as our company grows.
  • We roast 7 days a week, 364 days a year, so weekday and weekend shifts will be required.
  • To apply, please email joel-at-freshofftheroast.com, including a brief description of yourself, your experience or background, your availability and any other information you deem relevant.
  • We ask that you make at least a one-year commitment to work for us.

We are happy to report that, thanks to this posting, Adam Litchfield has signed on as our new roaster-in-training. Adam comes to us with an impressive list of accomplishments, most recently creating a menu for Cause philanthropub. He also developed a bread program for Green Pig Bistro's launch and flipped pizzas beside Edan MacQuaid.  Beyond his clear appreciation for food and cooking, Adam has a voracious curiosity for knowledge and understanding about the elements of flavor. We know that Adam will make a valuable contribution to our roasting program.
