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.

Doce Verao or ‘Sweet Summer’ comes from Carapina storage and processing facility where producers from neighbouring regions are invited to come to sell their green coffee. This way of trading is not too dissimilar to what you’ll see at a Sunday Market and is quite common among coffee farmers. Founded in 1983, Carapina works closely with their producers, providing training programs to help farmers increase their quality and sustainability. Carapina holds certifications in Fair Trade, UTZ, and Rainforest Alliance.
