Business.org said it is seeking "a self-professed Starbucks junkie" who "seriously loved their coffee" to document the experience of switching from the international chain to locally-owned coffee shops.

The chosen caffeine enthusiast will be required to visit at least eight locally-owned coffee shops during the month, take photos of their coffee during each visit,"log the key metrics" requested by the posting and write up a summary of their experience "going local."

Applications are being accepted through Sept. 30.
