SAY ALOHA TO OUR NEW HAWAIIAN BLEND

Careers

DRINK COFFEE DO STUFF is Lake Tahoe’s specialty coffee roaster built with the belief that extraordinary coffee leads to an extraordinary life. The mantra began in the Swiss Alps in 2012 during founder Nick Visconti’s pro snowboard days, and continues today at our Lake Tahoe headquarters and coffee shops. As specialty coffee grows at elevations similar to that of our roastery, all our coffees are sourced from the mountains and roasted in the mountains, resulting in unparalleled sweetness only achieved by high altitude roasting.

Are you looking to live in the Lake Tahoe region where you can participate in endless outdoor active lifestyle opportunities? We are looking for individuals who love to "do stuff" and want to work for a fast growing company, with plenty of upward mobility!

Below is a list of our current job openings. If interested, please email us at jobs@drinkcoffeedostuff.com, with a short introductory email and an updated resumé attached. We can't wait to hear from you and welcome you to Tahoe's caffeine scene!
