Beyú Caffè Brings Bold Flavors and Smiles to Boxyard RTP

One of the first things you notice when entering Beyú Caffè at shipping-containers-turned-food-and-retail-space Boxyard RTP is how all the staff members are smiling and upbeat. There’s an inspiring vibe that feels genuine and inviting.

With two other locations in Durham, Beyú (pronounced “be you”) is known for its quality coffee, fresh food and strong sense of community.

Connell Green, general manager of Beyú Caffè, and the rest of the friendly staff create an inviting atmosphere at the cafe.

Everyone who comes in notices that this is a friendly, welcoming place,” said General Manager Connell Green, who was greeting each customer during a recent midday visit.

The Boxyard locale is a hybrid of the other two Beyú spots, featuring cozy interior seating, grab-and-go food options and an intriguing coffee menu.

We have some breakfast items like muffins but also wraps, salads and sandwiches,” Green said. “And then there’s the excellent coffee.”

While standard java offerings are available, the menu’s aptly named Dope Specialties stand apart. Consider the Caramello macchiato with caramel and vanilla or the Oprah Mocha, which features espresso with dark and white chocolate and steamed milk topped with cocoa.

Looking for something a bit more unusual? Try the Mexican latte with espresso, dark chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg and steamed milk.

One of our employees said the Mexican latte makes you feel like little angels are break dancing on your tongue,” Green quipped with a smile.

Coffee drinks are served cold or hot and come in 12- and 16-ounce sizes. All beverages are priced $5 or less. Fruit smoothies and tea round out the liquid options.

When it comes to edibles, order the vegetarian-friendly quinoa bowl with diced sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, kale, dried cranberries, edamame and avocado. Or keep it simple with a garden salad or a handheld turkey club wrap.

It’s good to support a business that has been such a staple in the community, and the coffee is great,” said regular customer Matthew Konar as he sipped a hot version of the Mexican latte. Konar’s friend and colleague Jenn Truman enjoyed a cold Dirty Chai, a blend of espresso and chai tea.

Beyú’s At Home Coffee Collection offers bags for sale so you can enjoy the brew anytime. Try the “Say It Loud Dark & Proud!” or the “Heart and Soul” signature blends. If you prefer the flavor profile of single-origin beans, choose from among Colombian Classic, Indonesian Java Sumatra and Kenya Oh Kenya!

A portion of proceeds goes toward a give-back initiative called Beyú Food Project established to help feed children, families and frontline workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beyú Caffè is open Wednesday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
