Barista at Normal Coffee

About Us

Do you love coffee and creativity? At Normal Coffee, we see and savor coffee and food as art. And we’re seeking creative and considerate people to help us serve visitors to our one-of-a-kind shop located inside the Tube Factory contemporary art museum and nonprofit community space in the Garfield Park neighborhood.


In this job, you’ll prepare coffee drinks and fancy toast in our fairly simple setup. You’ll greet visitors and share a little about our art exhibitions that feature local, national, and international artists. And you’ll help us keep the place comfortable, clean, and stocked up as you expand your knowledge of food and beverage quality controls, preparation methods, and presentation. Working in a very collaborative environment, you may also support special programs at the space like night markets, pop-up food partnerships, and First Friday art openings.
