Thanks to Marley Coffee for sponsoring this post and a fun Coffee & Cookie party. All opinions are my own.
One of the few albums that’s been in constant rotation for me since I owned a walkman (yes that long ago) has been Bob Marley’s Legend. I grew up listening to Bob Marley before I even had my own means of listening to music. There’s something so comforting about his music. So solid. No matter what’s happening, it centers me, makes me believe that every little thing is gonna “be alright.” It’s an instant wave of calm.
We all have our comfort triggers.
My other comfort trigger is the smell of a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Oh! Optimism in a cup. There’s nothing you can’t conquer with that hopeful aroma.
So when you put together coffee, and Marley, what do you get?
Aromatic, fair trade Marley coffee, founded by Bob Marley’s son Rohan.
This week I hosted a little get together to share Marley coffee with friends and we also organized a cookie swap. Suddenly my home was full of friends, cookies and coffee. I was thrilled to tell people about the upcoming Eco-cups from Marley Coffee. Come summer the brand will be doing their part to keep k-cups out of landfills. It’s shocking when you hear how those little coffee cups have been piling up (stat). I have to admit it gives me pause when I consider using my Keurig. Those recyclable k-cups cannot come fast enough.
Marley Coffee® is also funding the creation of “vetiver wetland” sites in the Sidama region of Ethiopia to filter the water used in preparation of green coffee. This project will directly impact the water, health and welfare of over 25,000 residents of Ethiopia. To learn more, please visit www.waterwisecoffee.com.
Every cup gives back, Marley Coffee donates 1 cent per RealCup(TM) capsule sold directly to the project.
Marley Coffee is sustainably grown, ethically harvested and artisan roasted. You can read more about the beans on their site. If you want my two cents: my favorite is the One Love Brew. If you like something dark and roastier, I recommend the Buffalo Soldier.
My home still smells like coffee, and cookies. I’m listening to Bob Marley music as I sweep the crumbs, smiling to myself.
