    Let's see how many people can take this. It's interesting that such a domino effect is always set in motion when prices go up, I would love to see such effect when prices go down as well. Do prices ever go down for the consumer? This depends, I guess. Thanks Newscience. :)

    If people are unable or unwilling to pay the prices being asked, they'll go down. If they are willing or able to pay, they'll stay the same or go up. That's how a free market economy works.

    Some kind of coffee virus/rot reported in South America. Happened also a few years ago, and no perceptable increase in coffee prices (although they had threatened to do so) at that time. If it's happening at Starbucks and Dunkins I guess our Tim Hortons up here will shortly be following too. Might mean only stopping in for a coffee on our way home for just six days a week instead of seven, which will no doubt have a disastrous effect on their bottom line.

    I guess it may be a good time to find an alternative for the 7th day :D

    Or perhaps limiting my seventh day's coffee to only a small single-single, instead of my usual larger double-double for the other six days. That'll teach 'em :cool: to mess around with coffee prices.
