Rohan Marley Built A Coffee Empire To Honor His Legendary Dad
Rohan did not grow up in a musical household like his other brothers did. His mother Janet Hunt when she was 16 and while his father was still married to singer Rita Marley.
According to him, his mother is not an artist neither her family comes from a musical background. He lived with his mother and paternal grandparents who were normal working people.
Rohan built a coffee empire to honor his legendary dad saying that he could not inherit his father’s musical talents so he wanted to fulfill his father’s dream. His father dreamt of putting his passion for music into farming.
Rohan was 27 when his friend contacted him about an opportunity to purchase a property in Jamaica.
At the time, he had $200,000 in his pocket which he had received at the age of 12 in Royalties from his father’s music.
When he visited the property, he was instantly captivated by the property and the river included in the property so he gave all his money and bought a 55 acres property. It was in 1999.
After he bought the land, people came up to the property and Rohan asked the community what it was known for and they replied “Coffee”. He then asked if they knew anything about coffee.
When the community said that they have been farming all their lives, he became sure that he wanted to do a coffee business, one that was organic.
It was a long journey from there onwards from coffee growing ideas to building a coffee empire along with getting an export license, organic certification, and a coffee growers license on the way.
In 2009, he co-founded Marley Coffee. But the coffee business was not his first venture. In 2004, he created a clothing company and got into about 75 stores.
He said the clothing line was his first move to the business where he learned a lot that led him to Marley Coffee.
According to him, he came to a point where he was completely running out of money to produce the brand and eventually shut it down.
He felt like a complete failure at the time because he already had a coffee farm and was trying to get a license to export which he was not getting.
He had moved to America to play soccer but tore his hamstring on the team. He moved to Ethiopia in September 2007 and restarted his life focusing on his aim and purpose in life.
While in Ethiopia, he learned about true spirituality, Christianity, Rastafari, and way of life, and doing all of that he was able to create a coffee company.
