Hugh Jackman and Coffee
Maybe the title isn’t weird and I am just the weird one…I mean it isn’t any weirder than Paul Newman and coffee right? No. It is weird. But in an interesting way, no? You are intrigued and want to know more, but instead I am stalling…you probably could have googled this by now.
Well here is the scoop…
Jackman isn’t the first to celeb to start a coffee brand, he will be following in the footsteps of the late philanthropist and organic food brand creator Paul Newman (brand: Newman’s Own). Hugh’s line is set to be called ‘Laughing Man’, a charitable coffee company that will donate money to coffee farmers in Ethiopia.
Inspired by his love of coffee (yea you read that right) and the book Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good by Paul Newman & A.E. Hotchner, Jackman thought Laughing Man would be a great way to give back and raise awareness while leveraging his celebrity status. I think this is a spectacular idea. Newman’s Own has fantastic, organic coffees so I am excited to try Laughing Man. I’m actually always excited by a new bag of coffee, but that is irrelevant right now.
You can pick up a bag at LiveLaughingMan.com. So go do your good deed for the day, all profits go to charity. You know you want to. For me? They also sell chocolate and tea. Yes. Chocolate. Go buy some of that too. 🙂
So if you read this blog regularly (aka you LOVE coffee), you can now say you have something in common with Hugh Jackman. Happy Wednesday, you are welcome!
