What They're Saying

“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

“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 trade...plus more. If you also want to see the heart of Portland, Oregon, I recommend this workshop as well.”

Chad B. | Virginia Beach, VA

“An excellent, in-depth workshop covering all aspects of setup and running a specialty coffee business. Especially impressed by the knowledge (and patience) of all the trainers. Extremely useful to anyone contemplating a move into the specialty coffee business.”

Steve J. | London, England
