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, and very soon our social franchise will be added to this 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.

We recently partnered with our new beneficiary called Youth Zones & we are really excited for what the future holds for this partnership. Youth Zones 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.
