Starbucks (SBUX +1.1%) says it will begin selling K-cups on June 12 in its stores, providing more clarity to an earlier tip from Janney. Though the news should be considered good for Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +0.1%), it was a question of when, not if, on the initiative.

    Seems that SBUX & GMCR are strengthening their alliance!
    Could there be a buyout in order?

    This should increase sales for 2nd Calendar QTR above estimates. Even though sales in stores is only in effect last two weeks of QTR, this should still have an impact. K-cups already shipped for sales this Tuesday. Calculate total number of Starbucks stores X number of cases per store; additional sales should be substantial.
