June 7, 2018

That Starbucks habit just got a little more expensive.

Starbucks says it's raising the price of a regular drip coffee by 10 cents to 20 cents this week in most U.S. stores. It said a small brewed coffee, which it calls a "tall," is now $1.95 to $2.15 in a majority of locations.

The company said Thursday prices remain unchanged on drinks such as lattes and iced coffees in most stores.

Overall, Starbucks Corp. says it has hiked prices by an average of 1 to 2 percent in the past year, though the hike may be higher for particular drinks.

The company, which operates more than 28,000 stores in 77 countries, said inflation in product and operating costs prompted the increase.

There are about 220 Starbucks locations in Indianaapproximately one store for every 30,149 residents, according to culinary website Spoon University.
