Ok, it's now time to panic.

However, you have to love the name given to wild coffee. Psychotria Nervosa

Now, I want to try it.

Is that coffee actually vegan at that point? It involves the exploitation of animals.

I think Kopi Luwak is the only non-vegan coffee. And wouldn't any coffee exploit animals? Is not man an animal?

Climate change?

I never knew coffee grew at the North Pole. It'll all sink when all the ice melts...

So...Greenland will become the new hub of coffee growing?

So the wild variety will be gone, because it can't adapt to the new temperature. OK. Let's use our brains to do something about it. We could breed a temperature resistant version. Or genetically engineer one. It would probably take a couple of decades. So if we started now, we might just ensure we have coffee in 70 years.

no worries. a little work, a few bucks, you can grow all sorts of yummies even fish in tanks in your basement. as for coffee, i'll go the Mad Max route, shaving the sides of my head and risking life and limb as i lunge from a odd motorized buggy through the drive-in window at Dunkin Donuts, laying everyone to waste before i run out the door with a Box of Joe to go.

There has been too much violence. Too much pain. But I have an honorable compromise. Just walk away. Give me your grinder, the beans, the coffee, and the whole compound, and I'll spare your lives. Just walk away and we'll give you a safe passageway in the wastelands. Just walk away and there will be an end to the horror.

BTW - Peak coffe? Meh. Peak Oil though is now very real. Obama just created it by outlawing any and all oil drilling Out West on any federal lands. Where, you know, all the oil is. More oil than all the Mideast combined. Makes perfect sense.

I guess the good news is that we have a lot of ways to synthesize caffeine through chemical conversions that don't require the coffee bean.

Relax, guys, we won't all be reduced to drinking tea.

Even if this one goes extinct, they'll just use another species of coffee plant that grows at lower altitudes. coffea canephora, also known as robusta, is currently used for maybe 1/5 of the world's coffee. The flavor's not as good as Arabica, but the plant is more resistant to disease and pests, and has a higher caffeine content.

Also, there are a few others: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coffea#S pecies (even one that's caffeine free, but who would want that?)

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion,
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning,
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

You know... the whole point of peak oil is that expanding production to dirtier and more expensive extraction methods isn't actually a solution.
