(CNN/WLTX) - Climate change could send the coffee you drink to extinction. 

That's the report from a new study from done by scientists in London and Ethiopia. 

They say that Arabica coffee could be extinct by 2080. The reason for this is that the coffee grown on most plantations comes from a limited genetic stock. The bean doesn't have the ability to adapt to a shifting climate, pests, or disease. 

Experts also say coffee prices are the highest they've been in 30 years because of a combination of high demand and poor harvests.
