Local roastery legends Bellissimo is one of the most decorated coffee roasters in Brisbane, and the MOST awarded coffee in the country (true story!) having garnered 185 industry awards in less than a decade.
Besides roasting and supplying, Bellissimo also run cafes in Bulimba and Fortitude Valley where bean fiends can get their fix of premium, award-winning java. Well, now they can add one more locale to the list as Bellissimo sits on the verge of opening their third location within a humongous Coorparoo warehouse space.
The extra-roomy digs are full of promise for owners Michael Koo and Mark Bignell, who have big plans for Bellissimo Coorparoo to become the new roasting HQ for the entire operation, as well as a hub for coffee-passionate locals to throw chat over a single origin. (A new menu might also be on the cards as the warehouse will include a café with a commercial kitchen—so expect us to go bananas when that drops.)
With the production strain taken off their other venues, both the Valley and Bulimba cafes will be free to devote themselves to the dine-in experience and providing customers with expert brewing advice. Which we're totally down for.
The current open date is tipped to be late September, but we recommend staying abreast of Bellissimo’s social for an official launch date, or otherwise watch this space.
