Rohan Marley, one of Bob’s many children, has had an interesting life. After a successful college football career at the University of Miami, he moved on to the Ottawa Rough Riders.
In 2009, he co-founded a Marley Coffee, a coffee plantation–all-organic, of course–up in Jamaica’s Blue Mountains. If you’ve ever had Blue Mountain coffee, you’ll know that it’s worth the expense.
The company went public in 2011 under the name Jammin’ Java Corp. Rohan is also behind the House of Marley headphones.
But back to the coffee plantation. Business Insider recently profiled Rohan’s coffee empire.
The company is still small, however, with revenue of just $4.6 million in the nine months ending Oct. 31, 2013. That’s up from $1.4 million during the same period a year earlier.
Marley attributes the company’s recent growth to its sustainable farming practices, which he says were inspired by his father and his Rastafarian beliefs.
