Do you love drinking coffee? How about getting the chance to write about coffee as the lead writer for a growing website?
My name is Marko, and I run CraftCoffeeSpot.com. Our mission is to help people step up their coffee game. We provide high-quality content on coffee, including brewing guides, equipment reviews, and how-tos. The key term is high-quality content. We want to educate our readers on the ritual of brewing coffee.
Our site is off to a great start, and we have a significant pipeline of ideas with a material budget for new content. This gives you a chance to be on the ground floor of a high-potential business. If you produce excellent work, we’ll make sure you’re paid competitively, promptly, and given regular work.
We want an excellent writer who can also connect with our readers. While we are all about craft coffee, we are not coffee snobs. You need to be able to research a topic in-depth and write a detailed description in plain English. Every sentence should add value with no fluff or filler content. We communicate in a casual and informal tone of voice. We love playful humor in our articles - dry wit and puns are a plus!
We need real coffee experts. You should know the difference between a Chemex and a V60, which espresso machines produce nine bars of pressure, and the best single-origin beans for specific tastes. We want someone who appreciates coffee for the special drink that it is (barista experience is a big plus).
This role provides room to learn and grow as part of a team. We’ll provide regular feedback and editing tools to improve your work. There will be ongoing collaboration to ensure we’re producing high-quality content for our readers. We’re thinking about the long-term future with this hire. At the same time, you’ll be credited as the author of your work and can work from anywhere in the world with a flexible schedule.
To the extent you are successful, we’d be happy to promote you as an editor and give you the chance to manage other writers. Either way, you’ll be a core part of the team and get an inside view of building a media business. Best of all, you get to write about coffee!
