Java Republic is also a carbon neutral company and sustainability is at the core of their ethos. This was a high priority for us, as we also constantly strive for sustainability as a group. Our operations team is very much looking forward to working with Sean Francis from Java Republic to train and recruit skilled baristas to serve the best Java Republic coffee to our guests.”
