But with superannuation contributions that brings the total wage to about $73,000. It also doesn’t include any overtime pay for additional hours worked.  

According to jobs website Neuvoo, the salary advertised is more than $20,000 higher than the average pay for a barista in Australia which is said to be $51,855.

The ad asks for two “well-groomed, highly motivated and creative baristas” with more than four years’ experience in “prestigious café and events related environments”. 

It’s also Monday to Friday and offers six weeks “recreation leave” per year.
