Joyrista = Joy + Barista
Joyristas are the heart and soul of Java Joy. They serve our coffee, give hugs, and spread the joy. Java Joy wouldn’t exist without them! A Joyrista® is an individual of all abilities who is both being served by Java Joy’s mission and transforming others with their unique perspective. Once you’ve met one, you’ll understand why Java Joy is such an unmatched experience of joy.
