Our Values

People

Democratic Republic invests in people. We choose direct-trade because we are dedicated to the economic and social empowerment of African and Afro-descendant artisans. We exclusively work with independents, family-owned, and small businesses around the world to positively impact the professional and personal lives of those who create the things we enjoy.
Palate
Democratic Republic prioritises your palate. We create responsible lifestyle products without compromising on quality, craftsmanship, taste, and style. Our coffee is roasted to order allowing you to personalise your order and guaranteeing freshness for the perfect cup. We have insider access to the best vineyards and use your feedback to source wines you’ll savour, sip after sip. Count on us for good things you’ll genuinely enjoy.
Planet
Democratic Republic respects the planet. We want our shared home in its best shape to produce the crops, materials, and ambience for the moments when we enjoy the good things life has to offer. Our business model minimises waste across our supply chain, and we remain committed to working with our artisans and partners to improve the environmental impact of our products.
