Bellissimo helped us gain a better understand of specialty coffee. We already had the passion and drive to do our best, but Bellissimo helped give us the basic tools, knowledge and understanding of how to put it all together. Without Bellissimo, we wouldn’t have had the skill-set to be ready for all that happens when the doors are open. Every day is learning for us, and that is a good thing.

The Bellissimo business workshop was extremely informative.  I do not have a background in the coffee industry but left the workshop feeling equipped to begin my journey towards entrepreneurship.  The business plan was a great supplement to the workshop as it provided the framework and information required to kickstart my business funding.  I was able to modify and complete my business plan within a few weeks of completing the workshop.  My experience with Bellissimo Coffee Advisors has been extremely helpful and will allow me to kick start my business faster than I ever imagined.

In this free guide, we’ll show you how to…

Think Like a First Time Customer

Every customer that comes through your doors has the potential to be a life long paying one. It's crucial to be sure they have a positive experience and create a lasting first impression. We'll show you how.

Set Prices and Develop a Unique Menu

Many first-time coffee shop owners try to win customers over with low prices. We explain in detail why this is a losing strategy (and how to justify charging what your coffee is worth).

Make Your Customers and Employees Feel Special

In an industry with a ton of competition, it's imperative to stand out. How do you do that, though? It starts with treating both your employees and your customers like family.

Set a Marketing Plan and Put Goals Into Action

One thing that sets successful coffee shop business owners apart from those who try and fail is their marketing plan, and knowing how important it is to stand out (even with a small budget). Give your business goals, and a plan to achieve them.

What Others Have To Say About Bellissimo Coffee Advisors

We decided to invest time and resources into the best training we could find across the country and all due to the training from Bellissimo Coffee Advisors. Without them, our coffee dreams would have never come true. We now have a thriving retail store AND roastery and have revisited Bellissimo several additional times for training and collaboration and are finally preparing to open our second location.

The American Barista & Coffee Workshops are an invaluable resource and worth every penny you will spend. This is because of their acute attention to detail and care of each trainee that comes through their lab is unparalleled in the coffee industry.
