Coffee prices are exploding again. Futures are spiking, sending prices up 8% for the day to $2.00 a pound.
"Coffee prices are crashing up," tweeted trader Kevin Ferry, chief market strategist at Cronus Futures Management.

Prices were at a two-year high of $2.0065, and are up 81% since the start of 2014, reports Wall Street Journal's Leslie Josephs.
