SEATTLE - Coffee lovers the world over are facing a potential jolt - and not the kind that comes from that cup of java first thing in the morning.

Starbucks is warning of a serious threat to world coffee supply - due to climate change - which could mean the caffeinated beverage loved by millions is on the verge of extinction, according to news reports.

Komo News Link (http://www.komonews.com/news/local/131921038.html) :rolleyes:

I was thinking of putting this in the CU Weather Channel forum but since it involves the "extinction" of coffee, the End of The World forum was more appropriate.

Starbucks may disappear. Coffee will not.

Global warming?.........We'll just grow it in Minnesota.

These hacks will go to any lengths to justify their exorbitant prices.

The only way I like coffee is to make it virtually a milkshake. McDonalds' has a really good, much cheaper latte than Starbucks. I tried one a couple of weeks ago when I took one of my hungry foster kids out for lunch. I think it cost about $2.50.

Some are better then others!

We have a local one that is hit or miss. Mostly miss. Our McDonald's is ok at times...but they simply just used old coffee for the iced coffee...who knows how long it has sat and grown bacteria as it cools down...yummy!

I've had some great Starbucks in airports...except for the last time it was not even mixed! They were really busy...but I did not have to expect to "stir my own" with the green bio friendly straw. :)

Ew. I guess it's good that my preferred beverage and caffeine delivery system is Diet Coke.
