Coffee names fall out of favor with investors as Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -1.6%), Starbucks (SBUX -1.4%), Peet's (PEET -2.9%), and Coffee Holding (JVA -1.5%) all rack up losses for the day. It's the demand side of the supply and demand matrix that draws concern, with the conventional wisdom that says consumers will pay premium prices for coffee through thick and thin starting to get turned on its head.

    This recent article from the WSJ goes into more depth about the supply and demand of coffee. According to the article, the price of coffee (as a commodity) is down. That's a good thing for companies like the ones mentioned here. However, it also mentions demand for coffee being down in some European countries. I would just say - my two cents at least - that these companies having a bad day on wall street doesn't mean that overall demand for coffee is impacting coffee retailer's pricing.
