One Love Ethiopia RealCup by Marly Coffee Review |
  • Marley Coffee

    Fort Worth, Texas
  • One Love Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (RealCup capsule)

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: September 2013
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia. Price: $15.56/24 RealCup capsules

Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig K-Cup B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a "RealCup" capsule to produce a 6-ounce serving): Gentle citrus and floral sweetness. Candied lemon, flowers, suggestions of fine black tea in aroma and cup. Gently tart, juicy acidity; very light but silky mouthfeel. Flavor persists quietly in a sweet-toned but drying finish.

Notes: Marley Coffee was founded by Rohan Marley, Bob Marley’s son. It sources and roasts fine coffee from Jamaica, Ethiopia and Central America. Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively citrus- and floral-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. RealCup capsules are manufactured by Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee and are compatible for use with the widely distributed Keurig K-Cup line of single-cup brewing devices. However, neither Marley Coffee nor RealCup have any affiliation with Keurig or K-Cup. Keurig and K-Cup are registered trademarks of Keurig Inc. Visit for more information.

Who Should Drink It: A fine, balanced rendition of the great Yirgacheffe cup for owners of Keurig K-Cup and other compatible brewing devices.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
