He told me 3 times in one day how good they were and left me a tiny sandwich bag of them. This mix has a blend of pecans, cranberries, walnuts, raisins, blueberries and dark chocolate. It is ALL natural!

Products: Whole Bean, Ground, and K-Cup Coffee
About: Marley Coffee was actually founded by the son (Rohan Marley) of Bob Marley, to honor his father. His father grew up in a farmland and he always wanted to return to farming one day.

Do your loved ones some good this year and give them the special gift of Marley Coffee.
