At both events, Karen Marley will meet consumers, take photographs, sign autographs and help shoppers “Stir It Up” with a taste of Marley Coffee. Special gifts with purchase will be offered, while supplies last, and samples of Marley Coffee will be served from 11am – 3pm.
“Marley Coffee was born from my brother Rohan’s passion to honor our father, who came from the farm and always dreamed of returning one day,” said Karen Marley. “It’s always humbling meeting people who share our family’s values and have a deep appreciation for the response Marley Coffee has received from coffee drinkers. On behalf of my brother, our family and the Marley Coffee team, we look forward to sharing much love and great tasting organic coffee with fans in Northern California.”
Marley Coffee Organic Ground, packed in 8-oz. bags featuring the iconic Marley Lion and image of Rohan Marley, chairman of Marley Coffee, 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.
As with all Marley Coffee products, a portion of every sale will 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.
