Hugh Jackman’s Coffee

Joelle Mentis, Staff Writer

Hugh Jackman

He’s got a Golden Globe. He’s got a Tony. We wouldn’t be surprised if one day he scores an Oscar too. So where do you go from there? Well, turns out Hugh found his passion in coffee. And it turns out Hugh’s appropriately named Laughing Man Coffee churns out a darn good cup of Joe.

Hugh Jackman has been on the silver screen for decades. But he’s more than an actor. He’s also spent over a decade as the dedicated founder of Laughing Man Coffee, a fair-trade coffee company. After learning that, indeed, farming is really difficult, and also that coffee bean farmers are routinely underpaid, Hugh created a marketplace with fair compensation for coffee producers worldwide. And now, there’s a trendy coffee shop downtown where his curated collection of fair trade coffees are whipped into lattes. Because you need your coffee. And the producers of your coffee need you (and Hugh). Here’s Hugh Jackman’s coffee.

Laughing Man Coffee

In 2009, Hugh visited the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia, to film a documentary on coffee for a philanthropic organization. There, he met the people responsible for producing the beans whose coffee became some of the most sought-after commodities worldwide.

Originally, he was just there to support the philanthropic efforts of Australian World Vision’s documentary. But after he and his wife spent time with people in the Yirgacheffe region, he knew he wanted to make a more lasting impact on the community. Surprisingly, although also not so unsurprisingly, those individuals that we owe for the most popular goods get routinely bulldozed over by bigger companies further down the supply chain. Hugh believes that ending global poverty may be largely achieved in part by addressing the unfair coffee trade.

Companies like Hugh’s Laughing Man Coffee prioritize fair trade practices, ensuring that the producers are able to support their families. But it’s more than that for Hugh. 100% of the proceeds of his coffees goes to his foundation which donates money to entrepreneurs all over the world. Hugh Jackman’s coffee gives back.

Laughing Man Coffee has cafés in NYC. But you can also purchase his fair trade beans on his website. As Hugh has personal connections to the coffee beans, the quality also goes unmatched. So, everyone can feel good about Hugh Jackman’s coffee.
