The coffee is velvety, like the star.

Looks like celebrity-backed coffee is starting to become a thing. There's Hugh Jackman's Laughing Man coffee, David Lynch's signature coffee (with all its creepy commercials), James Murphy's potential espresso line, and now, Leonardo DiCaprio is coming out with a coffee line.

DiCaprio is linking his foundation with La Colombe Torrefaction, creating a "ultra high-end coffee line" called LYON. All profits will benefit environmental charities supported by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

LYON should be available now in select WIlliams-Sonoma stores, La Colombe Cafes, certain Whole Foods, and online. La Colombe describes the blend as "velvety, nectar like and sweet," much like the celeb himself.
