Caribou's good news: We're drinking more coffee
Caribou Coffee finally saw its profits go up in the first quarter of 2010. Gotta be a good sign that people are drinking Joe again. It's the little luxuries that count, right?
If you're interested in learning more about the Brooklyn Center-based company's most recent financial situation, here's a link to the call with reporters from yesterday on how things have been going. And the good news isn't just Caribou -- big coffeemakers everywhere are seeing a return to profitability, according to business reporter Tom Webb, of the PiPress. Starbucks, Peet's and Green Mountain Coffees are all seeing caffeine junkies come back to spend.
That's good news on a rainy Friday.
