This role focuses strongly on prospecting and building new partnerships throughout Europe, while continuously maintaining current customer accounts by providing support and development for all aspects of their specialty green coffee needs.
Account management of current and forward coffee needs requires this candidate be highly detailed and systems oriented. Strong and effective communication is a must in our fast paced and dynamic industry.
The position involves work with multiple currencies, hedging, and the coffee "C" market on a daily basis. A strong aptitude for numbers is extremely important.
In addition, the ideal candidate is responsible for coordinating and leading multiple trips to coffee producing countries annually. Comfortability with international travel and an openness to new cultures/ways of life is a must. Attendance and involvement at multiple European based coffee events is also required.

The right candidate will embody Cafe Imports' strong emphasis on a meaningful customer experience through compassion, empathy and education. This person will also work closely with the US office to ensure reporting standards are maintained in Europe.
In order to continually innovate and grow in our ever-changing and exciting industry we place a large value on Café Imports involvement at all different levels of the industry. The Sales team member will wear many different hats. The right candidate is constantly looking at how to improve systems and procedures to better reach our current and new customers.
Previous experience in Specialty Coffee sales, account management, or sales in a related industry.
An ability to demonstrate a proficiency working with numbers (currencies and "C" market).
