Bellissimo Coffee Advisors

  • "Build the workshop into your opening budget and just do it.  The money you spend on this will end up in your pocket if you take the trainers' advice and open your business."

    - Jim C. | | Irvine, CA

  • "Wow! The workshop I took at Bellissimo blew my mind. When I arrived, I didn't know what to expect. I was already a coffee lover, but as the workshop went on, I fell more deeply in love. I learned the importance of technique and that every drink I make must be perfect. Bellissimo demands excellence from its attendees and stresses the all important saying, "Success is in the details."

    - Branden M. | | Milton PA

  • "The workshop gave me an industry perspective from knowledgable trainers with years of experience.  I found the workshop to be very helpful in my planning and I am confident it saved me tens of thousands of dollars of potential mistakes due to my lack of experience."

    - Stephen S. | | Naples, Florida

  • "Flying in all the way from Pakistan was a big decision, and I couldn't have decided better.  This workshop offered me incredible information that I would not have had access to elsewhere."

    - Mohammad S. | | Islamabad, Pakistan

  • "Wow! Who knew there was so much to know about coffee? Coming in as a green bean, not really knowing much about coffee, I was blown away by the vastness that is the coffee industry. I learned so much. I now consider myself a light-medium roast bean, and I look forward to continuing my education on coffee and becoming…a French roast!"

    - Petra B. | | Inglewood, CA

  • "I learned a lot on how to open a coffee business, both business side and the practical side.  I encourage everyone who's opening a shop to go here!  The trainers are very helpful and they make sure what you're doing is right."

    - John A. | | Thornhill, Ontario

  • This workshop has been a great eye opener, it is a must if you want to go into the coffee business knowing what to do and what to expect! Great information and wondeful hands-on training! Great trainers, very knowledgeable and with a lot of expertise and coffee backgrounds! Loves this experience, learned a lot and enjoyed all the great company from all over the world that came to take this workshop!

    - Evelyn G. | | Fresno, California

  • "The workshop I attended was amazing. For someone who knows little about coffee and the coffee business, Bellissimo, in a short amount of time, gives you all the tools and knowledge of the more. If you also want to see the heart of Portland, Oregon, I recommend this workshop as well."

    - Chad B. | | Virginia Beach, VA

  • "Wow! Honestly, I came into this experience a little nervous. Opening a coffee shop is not something I expected to do a year ago. I was taught that jumping into a trade without knowing and understanding it is the first step to failure. I have gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from Bellissimo Coffee Advisors, and from its trainers. Bellissimo has me given a tool box with an abundance of tools that I am excited to roll out and use."
