The seeds of Bob Marley

Posted By on Tue, Oct 15, 2013 at 11:03 AM

My goodness: Bob Marley spread his seed—and Bend continues to benefit (?).
Sure, there was Ziggy Marley here this summer. Now, his (less musically talented?, but former linebacker) son is selling his coffee at the local Safeway.
Rohan Marley is the Bob Marley of coffee, so to speak: Marley Coffee is what the p.r. person calls “an international, gourmet, ethically farmed, coffee company with over 6,000 retail locations in 10 countries-from Europe, to cities across the US, to South Africa, and to Asia. And most recently, at Safeway here in Bend! Marley Coffee is stirring it up.”
We found this vaguely interesting.
What we found more interesting is, like father, like son: Although married and with two children with his legal wife (one who is currently a linebacker for Tulane), Rohan is referred to by Lauryn Hill as “her husband” and has five children with him!
We sure hope he is paying his taxes on the coffee beans.
