COURTNEY RENAE ELEANOR HILLEY
Hometown - Satsuma, AL
Having spent short stints of her life in in Florida and Mississippi, Courtney Hilley says that the Bay Area has always been home base for her, which is why she and husband Christian moved back to Mobile in 2016. The pair now own and operate Midtown’s Chaleur Coffee, a coffee roastery and tasting room on Dauphin Street. “I love continuing to learn more about the science of coffee and how we can play an important part in providing coffee farmers and their families with healthy lives by advocating for them, as well as being able to partner with other coffee shops and help them strengthen their personal brands and programs,” she shares. A creative director, editor, and designer by nature, Courtney also has a small namesake line of linen clothes in the works that she’ll be releasing this summer — an endeavor she’s thrilled to add to her repertoire.
