Marley Coffee is hitting it big!!!!

21 Feb

Bob Marley had always said he would return to farming one day, but his destiny was filled with the passion for music, and he never had the chance. With Marley Coffee, Bob’s son, Rohan and friend Shane Whittle fulfill this dream and offers his family’s treasures to the world.

Marley Coffee is an international gourmet coffee company with offices in Vancouver, Los Angeles and Jamaica. The Marley Coffee 52 Acre Private Estate sits atop the Blue Mountains in Chepstowe, Portland Jamaica, long revered as the region with the world’s most desirable coffee beans.

Rohan remembers his grandmother drying their wild coffee berries in the sun, hulling and roasting them for her own cup of coffee each morning. Marley Coffee is determined to deliver that same intoxicating aroma and rich, smooth flavor into every cup that bears the Marley name.

Marley Coffee is patiently awaiting their Jamaican Coffee Industry Board (CIB) license approvals to be able to share their private reserve beans with the world. Marley Coffee intends to adhere to the quality and control procedures that Jamaica’s CIB holds so proudly. “Blue Mountain coffee holds its own legacy and Marley Coffee is grateful to be a part of this legacy with Jamaica,” said Whittle.

Marley Coffee offers an assortment of shade-grown coffee blends from the finest coffee producing regions in the world, including Central and South America, Papua New Guinea, and Indonesia. They also offer an organic single origin java from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Marley Coffee is determined to deliver intoxicating aroma and rich, smooth flavor into every cup that bears the Marley name. All of the coffees are certified organic by the USDA, and the Pacific Agricultural Certification Society of Canada (PACS), and comply by the company’s ITAL standards.


35+ Year Old Women and the “C” Word

18 Feb

Depending on your preference, being called the “C” word or “Cougar” is not a compliment. The urban definition is: A 35+ year old female who is on the “hunt” for a much younger, energetic male. Cougars are non-committal, choosing to move from mate to mate without ever settling down. They are usually financially independent, and enjoy having total control.

 When you consider the male to female ratio and the suggestion that a woman’s odds of getting married deceases significantly after age 35; quite a few women may be erroneously mislabeled with that term. Let’s briefly examine the nature of an actual cougar.

 The cougar also known as the puma, mountain lion, mountain cat, catamount, or panther is an adaptable, solitary cat. A capable stalk-and-ambush predator, the cougar pursues a wide variety of prey. While it is a large predator, it is not always the dominant species in its range.

 Many mature, financially independent women seeking love look for quality relationships. Forced to maintain control in the workplace, they welcome the opportunity to let their guard down at home. Although most women want a man that is energetic and young at heart, they don’t necessarily want a man young in age (or mind).

 Maybe it’s just me, but making a real connection between definitions is a stretch. Besides the fact that the term is in poor taste in general, I think the word cougar should not have been chosen because it starts with the letter “c” and women already have another “c” word we can’t stand.

When I’m accused of “not having a sense of humor” or “taking a slang term too seriously”, I look the person squarely in the eye; consider one of Webster’s Dictionary definitions for the word “slang” which means: Slang (noun) – the special vocabulary of thieves, vagabonds, etc.; argot. and I laugh.
