About our coffee

Within the coffee industry, “cupping” provides a consistent methodology for evaluating a coffee’s quality. At Clouds, we are proud to serve coffee that has a cupping score of 85. High-grade quality is at the forefront of our business, and we are dedicated to providing an experience with coffee that you will never forget.

Coffee with a story

Clouds partners with Café El Zapote to provide the delicious coffee that we all love. Café El Zapote was established in Ames, IA with the sole purpose to support the impoverished communities in Honduras. This organization is implementing progressive change with the Honduran community that will eventually be reflected in the economy. By selling their coffee, they help induce positive change by practicing direct trade as a way to maximize sustainability and profit. In addition to providing a fair wage to the farmers, Café El Zapote donates additional proceeds to the Dulce Nombre Foundation that aids in the surrounding communities.
