Celebrating 20 Years of Java Republic

Java Republic are delighted to have just celebrated their 20th anniversary. The company was founded in September 1999 by David McKernan, whose vision was to create a coffee experience that was unparalleled in its quality, transparency and commitment to sustainability.

From the day he opened the first premises on the Old Naas Road, David stood steadfastly to his principles. He wanted to put an end to unethically sourced beans, low-quality roasting and inferior blends. Throughout the years Java Republic have remained wholeheartedly committed to his vision and in doing so have become one of the most successful players in the industry. Among the things that have made Java Republic the success it is today, is their values and ethos.

They are “Coffee for the People, by the Coffee People”. Within their walls you can find some of the top industry experts delivering you your favourite cup of coffee and tea every day. 20 years into the Java Republic journey and some of the original team are still in place today, continually working and innovating to be the best in the industry. Between them all they bring a wealth of experience and insights to their customers. With nationalities from all over the globe, Java Republic can offer you premium products that have been created based on knowledge and research, not just from Ireland, but from a huge variety of markets and cultures.

Java Republic’s commitment to quality is just one of the things that has paved the way to them becoming one of the leading brands in Ireland’s food and beverage industry. Most recently they were recognised at the Food & Drink Business Awards, taking home the prestigious award of Beverage Company of the Year. Combine this with them winning the title of Sustainable Manufacturer of the Year at the inaugural IMR Manufacturing & Supply Chain awards in January, 2019 has been a stellar year for the company.
