Working for Qualia

It’s pretty simple, really. Send an email to with responses to a few very basic questions:

  1. Why do you want to work in coffee? Why Qualia?
  2. Do you have any direct experience working as a barista? It’s okay if you don’t, but if you think any past work experiences would influence how you would work here, let us know about them.
  3. What kind of hours are you looking to work?
  4. Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.

It’s honestly that simple. If we like how you responded, we’ll contact you to set up an interview, and if you seem like you’re not only interested in learning more about coffee, but a good fit with the rest of the Qualia family, you’re in. If you really, really, really want to send us your resume, you may. Just please don’t drop it off at the shop. It will get hot coffee on it and become illegible.

Join Our Mailing List-Limited Release Coffees

At Qualia, we pride ourselves on offering top quality beans from around the world at a reasonable price. Our goal is to bring our customers the best coffee we can find, for which growers are paid a livable wage, but that don’t break the bank.

We stand behind the quality of all the coffees we offer, but we also regularly come across a small lot of coffee that we think is just spectacular. Our mailing list highlights these coffees once or twice a month. All of these offerings are available for mail order or in the store.

And every so often, we come across a bean that, while much pricier than our usual fare, is just too rare and precious to pass up. These coffees are often available in limited quantities, so we offer this exclusive line on a pre-order basis. We will also have each of the coffees available by-the-cup on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to be informed only when these Reserve offerings become available, please indicate this when signing up for our Qualia mailing list here.
