“A wonderful ode to coffee lovers everywhere. The story illustrates the power of coffee to unite us and jumpstart our days.”
— Rohan Marley, Chairman, Marley Coffee

“Critter Joe coffeehouse is a fun place for everyone to visit. Stop by for a delicious good morning latte or just to chat with your favorite kangaroo barista.” — Caroline Bell, Founder & CEO, Café Grumpy

“While the children’s classic completes the day with a yawn, Good Morning Brew awakens coffee lovers’ intense yearning for our favorite liquid.” — Ryoko Iwata, author of Coffee Gives Me Superpowers
