Last week I had the absolute pleasure in co-hosting a media event with my pal, Alison of Sassy Moms in the City, and a very special brand - Marley Coffee. It was the right fit from the start given my daily caffeine consumption. I completely respect a brand that not only has heritage but has introduced the EcoCup capsule which is a green alternative to the K-Cup you're used to seeing on the shelves.
Marley Coffee was founded by son of Bob Marley, Rohan Marley, in 1999. The farm is located in the Jamaica Blue Mountains and the goal was simple: support local farmers, the economy and the environment.
I suppose I could always be a little more eco-conscious, however it's the small things that create maximum impact, right? Well, here's a scary fact - over 10 billion single cup capsules are consumed and go into landfills annually. That's just for North America which is enough to circle the earth 12 times!
Our ladies were introduced to the Marley Coffee brand and some fun recipes to try at home! Hello Kahlua!
Our food was generously donated from Goddess and Grocer. This is a small snippet of the gorgeous spread we feasted on. Stunning...yes!
Marley Coffee is the first premium coffee brand with an easy recyclable solution in the EcoCup. You can also learn more about the brand's process and philanthropic mission here. Every single serve capsule purchased gives back (.01 cents) to the Waterwise Project, an initiative to help clean the river in Sidamo region and improve lives and communities in Ethiopia where Marley Coffee sources beans.
You can sample the Marley Coffee essence with this coupon or find them at your local Mariano's.
