Jill, Cloud City’s owner and roaster, has operated two of Seattle’s best-loved small cafes, Cloud City Cafe and El Diablo Coffee Company, for over 15 years. Inspired by over a decade of coffee shop success, Jill created Cloud City Coffee Roasters to hone her flavors and roast profiles to what she knows her customers love—cozy, easy to enjoy, and memorable in all the right ways.
Cloud City’s signature blend, with tasting notes of chocolate-marshmallow S’mores, is roasted to both a medium and dark profile, to suit the whole spectrum of coffee drinkers—all the way from basic black to milk-centric latte lovers. Who would say no to a mug full of S’mores?? Her single origins are similarly creamy, good for espresso, and bold without being too dark. Maybe you can’t make everyone happy all the time, but Cloud City’s coffees come pretty close!
Beyond the great cup, the Bean Box team especially digs Cloud City’s commitment to upholding the values that make Seattle’s coffee community shine. Front and center on Cloud City’s website is a mission to always follow the golden rule, and create a culture of empathy and respect for employees and customers alike. Similarly, Cloud City sources their beans with an eye towards environmental sensitivity, responsible impact, and a philosophy of always finding ways to improve. Good beans, good vibes.
