Bellissimo offers a comprehensive coffee business start-up and barista training program and a wide spectrum of workshops for existing retailers and consumers.
Bellissimo is not connected to a specific brand of coffee-related product, equipment or coffee. Unlike other training centers that use only one brand of equipment, we teach you on 8 of the industry’s leading espresso machines and many different brewing systems. We also let you work with coffee from more than 10 different roasters and expose you to a wide range of associated products. All the information you receive at Bellissimo is unbiased and in your best interest.
Bellissimo is the only training center with more than 60 sponsors that rank among the leading companies in the specialty coffee industry worldwide.
1000+ clients from 47 states and more than 40 countries around the world have attended workshops at Bellissimo.
Bellissimo’s “train the trainer” approach gives you or a key employee barista skills required to train the rest of your staff.
Bellissimo Coffee Advisors is the first U.S. training facility to expand into the International arena with Affiliates.
Bellissimo Coffee Advisor’s Instructors are specialty coffee industry leaders who have owned or operated multi-unit retail coffee businesses and offer our entrepreneurial clients a broad range of knowledge born of decades of real-life experience.

Portland, home to Bellissimo Coffee Advisors and Fresh Cup, Barista, Roast and Imbibe magazines, is the “new” coffee capital of the United States. Hundreds of specialty coffee operations and some of the best roasteries in the U.S operate in the city. While in Portland, our clients visit many of these innovative coffee shops and can see how other independents are able to succeed in a highly competitive market.
