The era of expensive coffee is not going to end any time soon, judging from dwindling amounts held in reserves. 

Stockpiles of high-end arabica beans, a favorite of artisan coffee shops and chains like Starbucks Corp., totaled 1.078 million bags or about 143 million pounds, according to data released Monday by ICE Futures U.S. exchange. That’s the lowest level for inventories monitored by the New York exchange since February 2000.
