Rohan Marley is pleased to announce the launch of Marley Coffee (www.marleycoffee.com), a certified organic coffee brand cultivated from the Marley family farm in Jamaica.
The brainchild of long time friends Rohan Marley and Shane Whittle, the company is a labor of love and a tribute to Rohan’s father, Bob Marley. “My father came from the farmland in Nine Mile. There, he learned a deep respect for nature and humanity–respect that helped guide his life and ours. He said he would return to the farm one day. That was his dream,” said Rohan.
Bob Marley’s dream has now become a reality, which is very much alive in the company’s core philosophy ITAL, meaning for all things Pure, True and Vital. ITAL is embodied in the ethical treatment of the company’s farm workers on the Marley Coffee farm to the sustainable cultivation of coffee trees. Additionally, proceeds from the sale of the coffee will go to the Marley Coffee Foundation, which helps youth soccer programs in rural coffee growing regions of Jamaica.
All of the company’s coffee is certified organic, with the beans sourced from the highest Class One Specialty grade. Additionally, each bag has Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, a coffee bean picked by hand and known for its distinctive floral bouquet, rich body and smooth taste. The 5 coffee blends offered are: Mystic Morning Wake Up Coffee Medium Roast, Simmer Down Organic Swiss Water Decaf, One Love Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Lively Up! Organic 5 Bean Espresso Blend and Jammin Java Organic Bold Full City Roast.
Marley Coffee is currently available for purchase online at www.marleycoffee.com. Marley and Whittle also recently opened a Canadian facility for international distribution. And, just this week, a U.S. distribution center in Los Angeles was opened to better serve domestic customers.
