Job Description

Based in NYC with additional locations in Miami, Chicago and  Los Angeles, Café Integral aims to bring exceptional Nicaraguan coffees to the forefront of American coffee culture.

Our rigorous work at origin and commitment to the cultivation of coffee is at the core of our foundation. We source coffees from four of Nicaragua’s finest regions; known for their characteristic depth and balance, but also for their dynamic and complex profiles. The relationships formed here are close, familial, and involved; they represent a spirited exchange that allows us to grow together.
