the voice of the specialty coffee industry

For more than 25 years, Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup has advised the specialty coffee industry and set the standard for education and training. Thousands of coffee business owners from around the world have benefited from our expertise and created successful, profitable operations, from single cafés to drive-thrus to major chains across the country.

Fueled by the passion of its founder, Bruce Milletto, Bellissimo has stayed on the cutting-edge of this explosive growth industry, and the company has evolved and expanded to address the needs of those entering the ever-changing specialty coffee market.

The latest expansion of Bellissimo is the opening of the American Barista & Coffee School, where students from all over the world attend classes to learn what it takes to be successful in today's competitive specialty coffee market.

The original mission of Bellissimo was to produce video training materials and business manuals for the newly born specialty coffee industry. In the early 1990s, these types of educational tools were not available. Bellissimo soon became the specialty coffee industry's leader in the development of these materials. As a natural outgrowth, Bellissimo soon branched into the consulting field worldwide, helping individuals open their coffee businesses and companies add specialty coffee to their existing programs.

Bellissimo has written and published four manuals on how to open and successfully operate a specialty coffee business. The company's video/DVD training line includes 12 titles. Bellissimo's consulting division has grown well beyond helping individuals, and our clients include Fortune 500 companies as well as American and International entrepreneurs.

As a result of Bellissimo's success, Bruce Milletto is recognized by the press and the industry as "the voice of the specialty coffee industry."
