The name Iron Lion links to the Song “Iron Lion Zion” from Bob Marley.
The song’s lyrics are directly related to Rastafarian beliefs. Zion is “the promised land”, in the song referring to Ethiopia. The lion refers to the Lion of Judah, representing Haile Selassie, the former Ethiopian emperor whom Rastafarians regard as their Messiah.
During his reign he fought for Independence, progress and peace. This is a real coffee off the rebels.
