Coffee Experience Ambassador AKA Barista (Start Date: Aug 17th)

Invermere, BC - Full-Time & Part-Time

All Postings


We roast Canada’s #1 whole bean coffee. Our Arabica beans are 100% certified Organic and Fairtrade. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, smack dab in the middle of the Rocky Mountains.

And our coffee beans aren’t the only ones winning awards around here. Our human beans kick ass too! Kicking Horse Coffee has been a certified Great Place to Work® since 2015. In 2018, we were named the #1 Best Workplace in Canada. Whoa! We believe creating a workplace that offers great careers and access to an exceptional lifestyle. It’s why we’ve made a commitment to become a living wage employer.

This fall, we are throwing open the doors to our reimagined, flagship Café. It’s brand spankin’ new! It’s as close to fresh roasted coffee as it can get. Where human beans and coffee beans are connected. Where everyone who comes through the doors leaves slightly more caffeinated and a whole lot more loved. We can’t wait to see you.


You love coffee. You love people. Most of all, you love creating uplifting human experiences. There is nothing fills you up like being of service to others. You connect the dots between coffee beans to human beans, leaving room for both to shine. You are filled to the brim with a positive energy, and maybe even a hint of cheekiness too. Look at you, you’re going to fit right in.


Create an exceptional experience for all our Café guests, while working with people that love what they do, and crafting quality coffee beverages. Welcome guests into our Café with warm mugs and full hearts. Leave our guests feeling much more loved, and a tad bit fuller, when they walk out the door.

  • Love for people. You get genuine joy from serving others and creating real connections with people.
  • Coffee breaks don’t take a break! We’re open seven days a week and looking for team members with availability flexibility (including weekends)
