For the third summer running, Starbucks is raising coffee drink prices in the US. The increases will vary market to market, but for the beverages affected, the price hike will be between $0.05 and $0.20, Starbucks spokesperson Sanja Gold told Quartz. For the most part, summer favorites like frappuccinos and iced coffee/tea are exempt. But Tall (Starbucks’s 12. oz size) and Venti (its 16 oz. size) brewed coffee are both jumping up $0.10 a piece in most stores.
The price increases go into effect tomorrow (July 7).
