Dear Citizen,

Welcome to the Re:public.

Roast Re:public was founded back in 2013, and has grown from a dream into a thriving social enterprise. We run a roastery and a couple of cafés, as well as our social franchises are adding to our ever growing list.

We roast and sell coffee from our home base in Johannesburg, South Africa. We operate as a social enterprise which means we have a double bottom line as a business and a brand. Ours' is simple - we give away 50% of our profits in the form of education development programs. 

Not only do we pride ourselves in sourcing & roasting the finest coffee beans on the planet, but we also have a huge passion for South Africa and her beautifully diverse people. We have a dream for our country, and that dream is a republic in which education is accessible for all.

Coffee is our currency, education our priority.

We trade a cup of coffee for a day at school.


The Roast Re:public Team



We are very proud of our strategic partnership with Youth Zones, which has a footprint in most of South Africa's poorest communities & they currently run more than 40 zones countrywide, reaching in excess of 40 000 our nation's youth.
