About Marley Coffee
Bob Marley always said he would return to farming one day, but his destiny was filled with his passion for music, and he never had the chance. Rohan Marley—Bob Marley's son—and his friend Shane Whittle fulfill this dream and offer the Marley family's treasures to the world.
What began in Jamaica 2007 as an effort to develop a small organic coffee farm with sustainable farming practices has turned into an expanding and environmentally conscious business venture. The Marley Coffee 52-Acre Private Estate sits atop the Blue Mountains, long revered as the region with the world's most desirable and delicious coffee beans. Today Marley Coffee has grown into a thriving international gourmet coffee company with beans roasted in Vancouver, Canada, and Kingston, Jamaica.
Marley Coffee offers its unique line of organic, Fair Trade and Kosher Certified coffee sourced from the top growing regions in the world including Central and South America, Africa, and Asia/Pacific. The coffees comply by the Rastafari standards of ITAL, standing for all things Pure, True and Vital. The Company is determined to deliver intoxicating aroma, and rich smooth flavor into each cup that bears the Marley name.
