    Since Starbucks first ventured into China six years ago, it has opened 230 branches across the country, and plans to open a further 10,000 outlets over the next few years.
    Oh dear...

    Thats a lot of additional coffee beans coming out of an already stressed supply. Were probably looking at on-going and price increases in the up-coming years. Very likely with a spike preceding the Beijing Olympics.
