A Few of Our Clients

What They're Saying

“This course was very beneficial and confidence building. The instructors have given me an edge to make coffee in my home town as great as it can possibly be. Coffee family is some of the best family one could ask for. The instructors are passionate and very good at passing that passion down to the students.

Joey R. St. Augustine, FL

“Amazing! Learned a great deal about the specialty coffee industry. Now have a great foundation to make quality drinks and offer a great coffee experience to our customers.

I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone opening a coffee shop.”

Bill D. Huntersville, NC

“I had so much fun attending the five day barista class + one day intro to roasting. All of the instructors were so enthusiastic about sharing their extensive knowledge and passion for everything coffee, returned home from (Bellissimo) with a love for the specialty coffee business and feeling confident in opening our new coffee bar. Thank you everyone at Water Ave for being such an inspiration!!”

Kelly D. Ojai, California

“I feel blessed to have found Bean Business Basics before finding Bellissimo Coffee Advisors. Reading through most of the book I feel allowed me to absorb more during workshop. Hands on training is priceless! I'm so looking forward to opening our store! I would have felt lost without Bellissimo. Thank you for doing what you all do with the passion and care that you do! Thank you for the warm welcome into the specialty coffee family!”
