  • Coffee wars: While Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR +1.2%) maintains a healthy market share advantage in the U.S. at the moment and Nestle (NSRGY.PK) is a force to be reckoned with in Europe, the battle for China is wide open.

    GMCR is not available in CHINA,even the espresso of nestle is not popular here.But starbucks do run a great business in China,I think
    having coffee with friends in SBUX is kind of social networking for these highly educated or rich chinese people,few of them are caffeine addicts.Single serve is hardly being as popular as in US.

    gmcr is not available in China, in fact,Sbux does great here.But I am afraid single serve will not be popular in China, Cause the customers who visit starbucks are rich or highly eductaed people.Among these having a cup of coffee with friends are more like social networking instead of coffine addiction
