Marley Coffee UK, founded by Bob Marley’s son, Rohan, has launched a new range of premium coffees into the Foodservice sector.

Product details:

The three blends to hit the trade are Lion Blend, Kingston City and Get Up Stand Up. Each will be available in 500g and 1kg bags and each blend is 100 per cent certified organic Arabica.

  • Get Up, Stand Up​ - This blend of Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, supported by volcanic Sumatran beans, produces a delicate and floral coffee with winey acidity, juicy body and blackberry notes complemented by a bitter-sweet cocoa finish. Ideal drunk as either a rich textured filter or a complex full bodied espresso.  
  • Kingston City Espresso – ​This blend is full-bodied and creamy with dark berries and chocolate notes throughout as high grown Peruvian meets volcanic Sumatran beans. It produces a thick and satisfying espresso with a powerful kick, molasses sweetness and subtle acidity. Combined with well-textured milk, this espresso is the perfect base for lattes and cappuccinos that are nutty, sweet and unforgettably delicious.
  • Lion Blend - ​This blend of high-grown Peruvian and Eastern Papua New Guinea beans from organic farms that are ITAL approved, has a malty sweetness, notes of toasted almonds and a bright fruity acidity. It delivers a coffee in a bean-to-cup machine that has good body, real smoothness and a prolonged milk chocolate finish.

USP:

A proportion of all profits from Marley Coffee UK will be given to support Kicks for Cause, a foundation that aims to build playable soccer fields and soccer camps for children of the coffee-producing communities around the world, enriching their lives through sport.

Marley Coffee UK is also a supporter of 1Love.org​ and both have been working together to raise the money for Chepstowe Basic School in Portland, Jamaica, built by Ziggy Marley´s charity U.RG.E, to build a new Canteen and Computer Lab.

Availability:

The three blends are available to all UK foordservice businesses in 500g and 1kg bags now.For sales inquiries, contact fnyrf@zneyrlpbssrr.pbz​.

Consumers are much more discerning when it comes to good quality coffee with provenance, and it is imperative that foodservice can deliver on this.”
