Description:

Bob Marley always said he would return to farming one day. With Marley Coffee, Bob's son, Rohan Marley, fulfills the dream. Rohan remembers his grandmother drying their wild coffee berries in the sun, then hulling and roasting them for her own cup of coffee each morning.

To celebrate, Rohan Marley, chairman of Marley Coffee, and his sister Karen Marley, will visit Whole Foods Market Colfax on Saturday, December 10 from 1pm – 3pm to meet consumers, take photographs, sign autographs and help shoppers “Stir It Up” with a taste of Marley Coffee. Beginning at 12pm, the first 25 people at the event will receive a $15 Whole Foods Market gift card, while the second 25 people will receive a Marley Coffee tote bag with special gifts from Rohan and a surprise Whole Foods Market gift card. Samples of Marley Coffee will be served and other special giveaways will take place on Saturday, December 10 from 12pm - 4pm at Whole Foods Market Colfax, 14357 West Colfax Ave, Golden, CO 80401.

Marley Coffee Organic Ground, packed in 8-oz. bags featuring the iconic Marley Lion and image of Rohan Marley, is available in the following varieties: Mystic Morning, Lively Up! Espresso, One Love Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, Simmer Down Swiss Water Decaf, Buffalo Soldier and the company's new, lightly roasted breakfast blend, Get Up, Stand Up.

During the month of December, Marley Coffee and Whole Foods Market Colfax will donate $1.50 from each 8-oz. bag of Marley Coffee Organic Ground sold at the store to Family Tree, a non-profit agency serving metro Denver families whose lives have been touched by the national epidemic of domestic violence. As with all Marley Coffee products, a portion of every sale will also support Kicks for Cause Foundation. Started by Marley Coffee, Kicks for Cause aims to build playable soccer fields and soccer camps for children of coffee-producing communities in Jamaica. Please visit www.KicksforCause.org.

The Marley Coffee Organic Ground line is certified USDA organic with a suggested retail price of $9.99. All Marley Coffee products live up to the Rastafari standards of ITAL, standing for all things Pure, True and Vital, which insists that all products are sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted.
