    A dual appearance by the CEOs of the Starbucks (SBUX) and Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) on CNBC gives a good indication of the expected synergies between the coffee players in areas of distribution and international expansion which spurred the new 5-year deal. Is Starbucks (SBUX) considering making a bid to buy Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR)? A good tap dance from Starbucks' Howard Schultz (video). Premarket: SBUX +0.9%, GMCR +17.7%.

    Starbucks (SBUX -2.5%) buying Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR -0.8%) makes sense to The Motley Fool based on the emerging strategic fit between the two companies. Even allowing for a hefty premium - say $30 - a SBUX-GMCR deal goes off at a reasonable valuation in a merger that would give the combined company the muscle to outlive worries over K-Cup revenue and patent expirations as the single-cup market matures.

    Even after shares shed 39% yesterday and 63% since September, Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR +5.8%) is still nearly twice as expensive for potential acquirers as the median S&P 500 company. Analysts say potential buyers would risk overpaying for a firm that faces competition, as patents on its brewing system expire in less than a year, and scrutiny of its accounting practices.

    Starbucks (SBUX +1.3%), whose shares are unscathed by partner Green Mountain's (GMCR -37.1%) day of infamy, announces it's acquiring Evolution Fresh, a maker of premium fruit, vegetable, and protein juices, for $30M. Starbucks, which will distribute Evolution's juices in its stores, says the deal is part of an initiative to "build a national Health and Wellness brand."
