About Us

Glory Cloud Coffee Roasters is devoted to excellence in all we do! For your pleasure we offer the finest hand-crafted coffee [from the holy grail of green coffee beans], extravagant loose-leaf tea and use the finest ingredients. We aim for excellence in the way we treat our guests, staff, suppliers and other coffee companies.  We celebrate Starbucks for bringing a coffee movement that changed the world. This allowed us to have our own opportunity to bring a new wave of wonderful tasting coffees and teas that are fabulous on their own. We offer our enticing products and beverages in a fun and informative style that encourages everyone to be part of a taste and aroma experience adventure.

 

What we do:

  • Using science and artisan skill we craft roast coffee for individuals and wholesale clients using the best available coffee beans [the seed of the coffee tree cherry-like fruit],
  • Develop a cold brew on tap with or without nitrogen service for restaurants & cafes,
  • offer loose-leaf tea packaged in a variety of ways to meet wholesale, cafe and individual retail or online orders,
  • We host coffee and tea educational classes at our roastery to train our friends on how to make the best beverages from our products; this is a key piece to our marketing strategy of being known as educators and experts in the field while offering a fun experience as we build ongoing friendship to family relationships.
  • For those serious about their coffee and tea, we will offer consulting to measure the quality of your water, coffee grind, coffee & tea extraction and offer guidance on how to improve your operation to optimize equipment and the amazing flavors of our coffees and teas that you serve your guests and friends.

 

Our Vision:

  • We have a culture of honor and respect on the leadership team that treats all people with integrity, honesty and compassion. This creates a valuable and valued staff and clientele. What you see and experience is what you get.
  • Our leadership team is passionate about learning and improving our knowledge and skills in all aspects of the business because we value you.
  • Our coffee experience and knowledge place us on the cutting edge of creating the best coffee and tea beverages in town.  We pursue being on the front end of bringing in or creating trends in our region. Reno is often 5-10 years behind trends in food and drink so we will continue to explore these in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and Los Angeles to experiment with how we can lead Reno into new experiences in taste.
  • Soon we will be a nationally recognized and certified training facility for coffee and tea professionals.


Becoming a Q Grader is an amazing accomplishment. The week long testing consists of over 20 tests covering every area of analyzing coffee through smell and taste that you can imagine. If you enjoy coffee cupping, then we are here for you to enhance your passion and expertise. This is a world-wide recognized certification through the Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) and testing takes place in a Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) certified laboratory. We are pursuing becoming one.

We have a great space for training, education, events and meetings.

We sample roast all our coffees before purchasing, cup them and then decide which ones to purchase. When the large bags arrive, we sample roast to a target profile and cup and score each bean to help us dial in the best flavor that is hidden in these little gems of flavor.
