They are marketing the K-Cup brewers and coffee very aggressively.  When 
they run out of new customers the bubble will pop.  Fads come and go. 
Hula Hoop anyone?

Personally, I think it is a fad that will pass (but in the mean time, I have made some money off of GMCR). You are right, that stock has flown through the roof, I wish I had caught it before I did but I was not in the market at the time when it was really starting to take off(Heck, the stock double in value in December, I think it increased 400% last year alone). I know last Wednesday they released an earnings report that came back higher than expected- almost double in fact- the stock opened with a gap on Thursday- IE opened higher than the previous days high. They were down from previous quarters but some analysts expect some pretty impressive earnings in future quarters.
