Marley Coffee – Ital Organic Goodness from Jamaica
Rum is the drink most closely associated with Caribbean culture and good times. Coffee, though, is no slouch in these areas either. For most of us, the two go hand-in-hand. You know, since long nights of living it up with the bottle are almost always followed by late mornings living it down with a pot.
When you consider that 90% of the world’s coffee can be traced back to the first coffee tree successfully grown in the Caribbean on Martinique back in 1723, perhaps Caribbean coffee deserves a little more respect.
I’ll have a lot more to say about Martinique’s coffee tradition later. Today, though, we’re focusing on Marley Coffee, one of the newest caffeinated creation from Jamaica’s legendary Blue Mountains.
The fascinating video above not only introduces the new brew, it also gives a nice, concise history of coffee. It also details coffee’s importance to the agricultural sectors of developing countries.
Consistent with long-held Marley family ideals of brotherhood and caring for the earth, Marley Coffee practices sustainable farming techniques. That means no chemicals, or fertilizers. It’s a method Marley Coffee calls Ital-Organic, and it makes a lot of sense if you care about what you put into your body.
It’s a great story, that no doubt results in great-tasting coffee.
