Who are we?

We are Guilt Trip. Here to say “that’ll do, won’t do”. To showcase some of the finest speciality coffee around and to produce some of the tastiest, most badass donuts that our fine city has ever laid eyes or lips on. We want to rewrite the script as many times as possible and have as much fun as we can while we do it. We love coffee and donuts, and coffee and donuts love us!  

Who are you?

We are looking for someone who wants to see donuts become president! Who can connect with our brand at its heart, and translate that into the donuts we serve. Our ideal candidate is someone who is a complete baker (baking tattoos preferable), who is capable of mass producing donuts to the highest standard consistently day by day with a smile on their face and a cheeky glint in their eye! We also want you to have the creative genius to push the boundaries of the humble donut past the horizon.
