buy up coffee and hoard it... itll be worth like gold.
Dollars stores sell whole bottles of caffeine pills for a dollar. If you buy in bulk, you might even be able to get caffeine cheaper online.
I wonder what the % of people in this country is that consume coffee? I'm water only (outside of alcohol) and I'm well aware at how popular coffee is for the morning crowd.
i think coffee and chocolate will become luxury food items soon. supply stays moderately the same, population grows.
All you guys need to invest in growing your own coffee beans. That's what I do.

Thanks to speculators, who remove volatility from the market, you won't be able to profit from that. That shortage is already priced in by the market. You can only profit from information that is not available to everybody else too.
Or to put it differently, it doesn't make any sense to buy now if you fear higher prices. If coffee is so durable that you can stock it, every seller can do the same and would have already done it, in which case today's prices already include the additional demand because of the coming supply shortage.
KONA coffee is $20 a pound... I buy wholesale direct from the main island
only a matter of time before the DC subsidies/corporate welfare to Starbucks, et al, start flowing to keep prices down.
PS: Starbucks coffee doesn't get my business
