Extremely reflective, Bob Marley constantly looked at the world and at himself with the desire to make a difference. It came through in his music, which in so many ways is a poetic call to every individual to shape themselves and the world they’ve inherited into something better. His lyrics worked to instill a sense of pride and strength in the face of injustice and adversity.
An international success and cross-cultural inspiration, Marley began his life humbly in the rural areas of Jamaica. It was his hope to eventually return to his roots and work the land. Marley’s son, Rohan, has worked to combine his father’s philosophy and love for farming by co-founding Marley’s Coffee with his friend Shane Whittle.
Marley’s Coffee is an organic coffee company that strives to support local communities and the environment by adhering to environmentally sustainable and socially ethical practices. It has been said that “…intellectual activity has to be informed by the arts of the imagination…” It is by working to help the people: the farmers and children of the local communities, that Rohan and Whittle have honored Bob Marley’s fierce desire to better the world. By working solely with like-minded free-trade farmers in Indonesia, Ethiopia, Jamaica and Central America, Marley’s Coffee remains at the forefront of sustainable development.
They have emulated not only Marley’s humanitarian beliefs, but his sense of pride as well. Each blend of coffee (named after Bob Marley songs) is completely organic and offers delightful, rich bouquets that rank up with some of the finest coffees in the world.
“Lively Up”, named after Marley’s inspirational song, Rastaman, Lively Up, is a 5-bean espresso blend that works in perfect harmony with premier Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. Full-bodied and well-balanced, the coffee has a long and savory finish with hints of candied fruit, sweet caramel and cocoa. “Lively Up” can be prepared using either drip, press or espresso methods.
“One Love”, a tilt-of-the-hat to one of Marley’s most widely acclaimed songs, is a well-rounded, brightly acidic coffee made of 100% Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. “One Love” is one of Marley’s Coffee’s most popular blends, defined by floral notes and hints of blueberry, cocoa and spices. This cup will finish off with a profound cherry finish.
“Mystic Morning” is a blend of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and the finest grade 1 coffee beans from Central America. A medium-bodied blend, “Mystic Morning” is known for its vibrant spice flavors and undertones of cocoa and cinnamon.
“Buffalo Soldier” is a blend of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and the finest beans from Central America and Indonesia. Sweetly roasted with delicious smoked earth notes, this sultry coffee blend has dark chocolate and berry undertones with a smooth and lingering finish.
The most prized, however, is “Talkin’ Blues,” a sweetly mellow full-bodied coffee made from 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans. “Talkin’ Blues” is admired for its delicate balance of floral aroma and acidity. This coffee is grown in the rich soil of the Blue Mountains along hilly, rugged terrain beneath a canopy of banana, Inga and Mango trees. “Talkin’ Blues” carries the Marley
Coffee ITAL seal and is recognized the world-over by coffee connoisseurs as one of the best coffees on the market.
Marley’s coffee also offers a delicious decaf blend called “Simmer Down.” This distinctive coffee is made with a unique process called the “Swiss Water” technique. Pure water from the mountains of British Columbia to gently removes the caffeine. It is in this way that the beans maintain their delicate flavors and smooth characteristics. “Simmer Down” is roasted dark and full-bodied with mild acidity and subtle aromas of nutmeg, spices and cocoa. Marley’s Coffee also offers a decaffeinated blend called “Mountain Roast Decaf” which is also made using the Swish Water technique.
