We roast and serve coffees that we think taste great. Our offerings change throughout the year, depending on what's in season and what we think will work for the consumer. We buy and roast in small batches to ensure we bring out the best qualities in every lot.
At our espresso bar, we are able to roast small highly controlled batches of coffee. The people roasting the coffee are the same people pulling shots and serving the coffee to the customers. This connection with the roasting process has enabled us to fine-tune our roasts over the last twelve years.
Important notice: Be Specialty Coffee has suspended accepting new orders while we operate under the guidelines provided by New Zealand Central Government for COVID-19 Alert Level 4.

We would like to introduce our newest addition to the roasting team. The IR24 Roaster from Diedrich. The fine, yet powerful burners, amazing build quality and the variable air control makes the IR24 roaster the one to have (and we have always had a hankering for). Unfortunately, the IR24 roaster was discontinued many years ago and replaced by the CR25. You can imagine how excited we would have been a few months back when we managed to get hold of this amazing IR24 roaster. We jumped to it and before you can say "matchy matchy", we had the IR24 roaster sitting next to our original IR3 roaster that we started out with back in 2006!
Our new IR24 roaster is equipped with full Automation, it can also be controlled manually, while we work on our roasting profiles. The repeatability of roasts and the accurate cross-referencing between both IR series roasters has all of us at Be Specialty very excited indeed. We have just started full production roasts on the IR24 and could not be happier, we will be adding a few bits and pieces over the next six months but do feel free to drop us a line if you are interested on having a peek at our new roasting set up.
