What is a Joyrista?

joy + barista = Joyrista

A Joyrista is a person with a disability who serves coffee, hugs, and a joy that transforms days. Our joyristas run Java Joy’s mobile coffee cart and attend bookings throughout the community. These bookings could include conferences, employee appreciation events, business meetings, or parties. The joyristas assist with coffee service, brewing, clean up and more. They receive essential job training, an hourly wage, and the opportunity for meaningful employment. In return, the customers who book Java Joy get to experience the unique joy people with disabilities have to share and engage meaningfully with a person of all abilities. Joyristas should be excited to learn new skills, have reliable transportation, and be independently toileting.

How to Become a Joyrista:

Future joyristas go through an application process before being hired. To begin, email Erica@espyouandme.org!
