The Titanic star is the latest celebrity to get into the coffee biz following James Murphy's talk of an upcoming espresso line, and Hugh Jackman's new coffee shop. Not to be outdone, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation (DiCaprio has a foundation, apparently) has lent its name to a line of beans from La Colombe. They're totally sustainable and proceeds benefit environmental charities. A press release says the Leo-branded joe is part of the launch of an "ultra-high-end coffee line" from the roaster, dubbed LYON, which is being sold at Williams-Sonoma, Whole Foods, and online. All this celeb-backed coffee is making us think New York might need to add a new category to its celebrity economy coverage.
