In a follow-up on Starbucks' announcement that it plans to introduce a new product in the single-serve coffee segment, Reuters is reporting that Starbucks and Green Mountain -- which currently
dominates the segment with its Keurig brewer -- are in partnership negotiations.
There has been no official comment by either company. Reuters cited an anonymous source "close to the
talks" for its report.
Green Mountain's share price surged after the report was published.
