On the heels of the now-mostly-confirmed Stumptown sale, the New York Times investigates why big business would invest in artisan coffee bars. According to the piece, new Stumptown investor TSG Partners has a $900 million cache to work with — and "independent coffee companies could use some of that cash." The piece notes that while "the high-end coffee scene is expanding... costs of making a great cup of coffee have never been higher." [NYT]
