'coffee is only for rich people'. Let's put that idea to bed. The cost of the ingredients in a coffee from a coffee shop is a tiny part of the cost paid by the consumer. I believe it can be as little as 5%.
So the change in the price of coffee will make little difference to the cost of buying a cup.
(although coffee shops may decide to use it as an excuse to put their prices up a lot! That won't be the fault of the price of arabica in the futures market though)
