3. Laughing Man Coffee (Hugh Jackman)

Hugh Jackman may be getting Oscar buzz for his role in “The Front Runner,” but the actor tells us he’s stopped more for his coffee these days than for his movies. The entrepreneur started Laughing Man Coffee in 2011 after a chance meeting with a coffee farmer during a trip to Ethiopia. Taken with the world-class coffee, and the sense of community within the farmer’s village, Jackman was inspired to start a brand that would not only deliver quality coffee beans, but give back to those same communities as well.

This holiday season, Jackman, whose drink of choice is a flat white, says he’s partial to Dukale’s blend, named after the farmer he met all those years ago (“It’s where we came from,” he says). Jackman tells us he is also loving the Colombia Huila blend. “It’s perfect any time, with or without milk, balanced, bold, rich with tons of cherry and chocolate notes.”

A portion of sales from every purchase goes to Jackman’s Laughing Man Foundation, which supports the health, growth and success of coffee farmers and their families. “What really makes us different is the sincerity and authenticity of our story,” Jackman says. “I really did not set out to start a coffee company. I was so inspired by what I saw in Ethiopia and when I came back, I opened a café and it grew from there. I love being able to use any notoriety I have in this to give voice to this brand.” Purchase: $8+ on Amazon.com.
