LOS ANGELES and KINGSTON, Jamaica, Aug. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Marley Coffee (OTCBB: JAMN), a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, will help celebrate the 50th Jubilee Anniversary of Jamaica's Independence, which will be officially commemorated on Monday, August 6, 2012.

The Jamaica division of Marley Coffee, based at historic 56 Hope Road in Kingston, will display the company's new mobile retail concept, the Marley Coffee BikeCaffe, at the National Arena in Kingston, where it will serve free, fresh brewed cups of Marley Coffee to those joining in the Jamaica Independence Day festivities on Monday, August 6.

"Jamaica is where it all begins for Marley Coffee, for me and for my family and I'm excited to roll our new Marley Coffee BikeCaffe concept onto the streets," said Rohan Marley, chairman, Marley Coffee. "We are blessed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Jamaican Independence and are very proud of the work we are doing to help spread a more sustainable, earth-friendly and people-friendly farming movement for the coffee industry in Jamaica and beyond."

BikeCaffe, found in select cities nationwide and in Europe, is a new approach to serving coffee to customers: the three-wheeled, geared bikes are full-service mobile cafes that can roll from location to location, leaving little carbon footprint behind. Moving forward, the Marley Coffee BikeCaffe will be stationed at 56 Hope Road / Bob Marley Museum, Nine Mile, and Falmouth Port, where hundreds of thousands of tourists go each season. Marley Coffee BikeCaffe worldwide franchising opportunities are available now by contacting BikeCaffe Franchising at or calling 877-PEDAL-ME. Learn more at
