While being a reggae music fan isn’t a prerequisite for enjoying Marley Coffee, it does seem appropriate to take that first sip while listening to Bob Marley’s ‘One Cup of Coffee.’
While much of the Marley merchandise appeals to those who see the Jamaican reggae star as the symbol of the pot culture, this coffee should be enjoyed the earth-friendly vision behind it. Founded last year by Marley’s son Rohan, the company uses certified organic coffee that is sustainably grown and ethically farmed on the family’s estate in Jamaica.
Marley Coffee sells in 12-ounce bags of whole beans for $14.99. Proceeds from each sale go to Kicks for a Cause, a charity founded by the Marley family.
Lively Up is one of five coffees in the line, including one decaffeinated choice. It is a strong, smooth five-bean espresso blend combined with Ethiopian Yirgacheffe.
Once that morning cup of Lively Up is gone, one can’t help but feel that ‘everything’s gonna be all right.
