Archer Consulting sees the premium that arabica coffee commands over robusta beans falling by 50% to its lowest level since 2009. While packaged sellers Kraft and J.M. Smucker have dropped prices already (I, II), mum is the word so far from Starbucks (SBUX +0.5%), Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -1.8%), and Peet's Coffee & Tea (PEET -0.3%).
