Advanced Barista Training
Bellissimo Media Productions

2006 winner of the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s “Best New Educational Product” award.

Award This 40+ minute DVD features four of the country’s most talented baristas demonstrating sophisticated latte art techniques, expanding the viewer’s idea of what is possible when espresso and milk are combined in a cup. In addition to The Simple Heart, viewers will learn more complicated pours including The Triple Rosetta, The Apple, The Autumn Leaf, The Little Flower and The Fire-breathing Dragon. The featured baristas also discuss the fundamentals of coffee grinding, espresso extraction and milk texturing.

The DVD was shot at the American Barista & Coffee School in Portland, Oregon and directed by Bruce Milletto, president of Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup. The featured baristas — Billy Wilson of Portland, Oregon, Chris Deferio of Ithaca, New York, Austin Gregory of Seattle and Bellissimo consultant Matt Milletto — exhibit a passion for coffee and flair for showmanship that make the DVD entertaining as well as educational.

Training with the Champions
Bellissimo Media Productions

After over a year of filming, Bellissimo has brought together in one DVD some of the best baristas in not only the United States, but in the world. In this approximately 45-minute training and educational DVD, each barista shares his or her techniques and philosophy of coffee and espresso, as well as what it takes to be a champion.

This training DVD is the first in which regional, national and world barista champions share their passion one-on-one with the coffee world. Featured are 2006 World Barista Champion (WBC) Klaus Thomsen and three former United States Barista Champions (USBC): Matt Riddle, Bronwen Serna and Phuong Tran. Northwest USBC champions Kyle Larson and Billy Wilson are also included, along with Cup of Excellence judge Stephen Vick, who is featured in a special cupping section. Making appearances are long-time barista competition judges Sarah Allen, editor of Barista Magazine, and Brent Fortune, owner of Crema Bakery and Café of Portland, Oregon.
