"If selected, your job will be to document your experience -- tracking and comparing the cost, benefits, and potential setbacks of moving to a buy-local lifestyle for your daily coffee fix," the website said.

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.
