Starbucks in Talks to Buy Peet’s Coffee

Peet's Coffee

Peet's Coffee may soon become a part of the Starbucks empire, according to Reuters. Both company's CEOs have declined to comment, however.

The Emeryville company apparently held talks with Starbucks about a potential sale. Rumors have floated around the coffee industry for months, but this is the first concrete news we've had about a deal.

Peet's sells packaged coffee at Albertson's supermarkets and has 192 retail stores in six states.

Peet's has a market value of $589 million as of Tuesday's market close, according to the wire service.

Word of a deal may have Peet's loyal followers (Peetniks) up in arms.
