Marley Coffee

OUR STORY

Bob Marley dreamt of one day putting his passion of music into farming. Through his son Rohan Marley, that dream was finally brought to life.

When asked “Why coffee?” Rohan Marley often speaks of his family and his legacy. He comes from a family full of passion for music and the earth.

While visiting a farm in Ethiopia, Rohan began to understand that, like the music his family creates, people have a rhythm. The passion he saw in the farmers inspired him to follow his passions and create Marley Coffee.

Heat sensitive cups reveal the dark side of cocoa

Last week, the Canadian Fair Trade Network and Rethink Communications took to a Canadian campus to raise awareness for what the United Nations refers to as, “some of the worst forms of child labour” with a stunt that left university students speechless. Passers-by were treated to a cup of hot cocoa that, when filled, activate thermal ink to reveal a devastating message: 1.8 million children work on cocoa plantations.
