ABOUT US

Bellissimo Coffee is a team of passionate and enthusiast coffee lovers.  A young team on a steep learning curve but with a strong desire to share our appreciation of coffee with as many people as possible.

Bellissimo Coffee was established in 2009 and started roasting from our flagship store at Wandoo Street in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley in 2010. Since then we’ve won multiple awards over the years to become the current highest awarded coffee roaster in Australia.

After our success at Wandoo Street we further expanded to the Bulimba roastery in December 2013, up-sizing to a larger coffee roaster to keep up with our quickly growing wholesale network.

We’re proud to have achieved a number of awards along the way including:

  • Champion Trophy and Gold Medal at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Awards
  • Two Champion Trophies and two Gold Medals at the Melbourne Royal Fine Food Awards
  • Reserve Champion Trophy and four Gold Medals at the Royal Hobart Fine Food Awards
  • Overall Event Runner Up at the Golden Bean Roaster Competition
  • Champion Cold Brew and Champion Direct Trade at the Australian International Coffee Awards 2016.
  • Champion Cold Brew, Champion Direct Trade Coffee and Champion Milk-Based Coffee at the Australian International Coffee Awards 2017.
We’re fortunate to have a great team of very passionate and dedicated staff. Customer service is our priority and we work hard together with the aim to deliver the best possible experience.
Our team comprises not only of our skilled baristas and cafe staff, but also a hard-working marketing, wholesale production, and technical support team. This team works across a number of operations including roasting, coffee machine servicing and installations, warehouse operations, coffee quality control, customer relations, business development and research and more. We’re very excited to work on a personal level with a number of great cafes and restaurants sharing our knowledge and love of coffee.
Wherever possible, we seek to roast only the highest quality of green beans. Sourcing from Australian importers locally as well as directly from various international coffee farmers and plantations. We work on roasting the beans to their situated best, creating various unique and exclusive blends and offering a wide range of single origins to ensure you experience the very best of Bellissimo Coffee.
We recognise the great efforts and challenges coffee farmers face across the globe and seek to give them due respect and credit for their work in how we seek to promote their coffees. We feel that as part of the coffee community we can continue to educate and improve people’s understanding and enjoyment of quality coffee.
We are extremely grateful to have such a strong and loyal support base from so many great customers and are always humbled by the encouragement we receive.
