Black Betty is a lively cafe in Christchurch City. Located opposite the main entrance of the Christchurch Polytechnic, Black Betty has a great breakfast spread and serves the city's finest Switch Espresso coffee.


Black Betty is also about specialty coffee. Yes we make great espresso, but we also have a variety of different flavours to taste through coffee syphons and pour-over filter cones. We also have a new 1kg sample roaster to roast batches of microlot coffees to specific depths in order to bring out the most subtle and delicate flavours. Black Betty specialises in mouth-watering coffee, serving a range of brew methods including Syphon, Aeropress, Pour-over, Cold-drip and of course our famous BBIV Espresso blend.
