Dear [Mr/Ms/Mx] [Contact Person’s Name],
I’m writing to express my keen interest in the Barista (Shift Manager) position at Beane’s Beans, as advertised on LinkedIn. With more than 6 years of dedicated experience as a barista in London, my passion for coffee and my commitment to offering outstanding customer service align perfectly with the standards of excellence that Beane’s Beans is renowned for.
In my current role at Coffee Mug, Charing Cross, I have had the opportunity to interact with a diverse customer base, tailoring over 40 different beverages to individual preferences. My proactive approach to upselling has helped the company exceed sales goals by over 32% in 2023, and I have trained and supervised 9 new hires. I’m particularly proud of maintaining a 98% customer service feedback rating, a testament to the relationships I have built and nurtured with the coffee lovers who frequent our store.
My other career highlights include:
- Generating over £900 in sales in just one day during the Christmas holidays as an Assistant Barista at 123 Café
- Attaining technical proficiency in point-of-sale software like TokenWorks Magnetic Card Reader and Plexis POS
- Receiving a Level 3 Food Hygiene demonstrating my compliance to the highest standards of cleanliness and safety
I pride myself on my coffee and tea knowledge, sales skills, and inventory management, combined with excellent interpersonal skills. As an enthusiast of coffee culture, I invest personal time in understanding emerging trends, which I believe will further enhance the customer experience at Beane’s Beans.
Thank you for considering my application. I’m keen to bring my expertise to Beane’s Beans and further discuss how I can contribute to the continued success of your café. You can reach me at email@example.com or 01234 567 890.
