Dear Mr. Marshall,

I am very pleased to be applying for a position as [job role] at [Coffee Company]. My passion for coffee and extrovert characteristics can contribute to your establishment’s mission to provide high-quality pastries and promote coffee consumption by educating customers. Therefore, I want you to consider this job application for the barista position at your establishment in Greenwich, New York.

To shortly introduce myself, my name is [John Wheeler] and I have three years of working experience in retail at [Company Y]. I noticed that [Coffee Company] has been expanding into the retail sector and is now offering canned and dried beans as well as at-home grinding machines. As a passionate coffee lover, I am highly motivated to use my customer service skills and promote your menu items whilst creating a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

In my current role as a retail assistant at [Company Y], I handle the cash register, perform inventory checks and process transactions on a daily basis. The day-to-day responsibilities also involve maintaining and nurturing long-term relationships with clients. According to an ongoing client satisfaction survey, I am being perceived as a friendly, approachable person with clear and effective communication. Our team managed to receive a consistent 97% positive feedback, and I even received recognition for these results (see references). Currently, I seek to obtain a client-oriented position where I can demonstrate and assist customers with selections of various coffee blends and cold espresso beverages.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss my candidacy and demonstrate my ability to pull consistent espresso shots and flawless foam. I’ve attached my references and resume for your review. If you have any questions about my job application, you can reach me at [000-000-0000] or [Email address]. Thank you for your time and consideration. 

Kind regards, 

John Wheeler
