Starbucks prices hike

Starbucks prices are rising

Starbucks is hiking up their prices. Despite many consumers already feeling like the coffee-giant's

prices are way too high, the cost of a cup of coffee is going up.

On Friday, Starbucks announced that starting Tuesday many of their drink prices are increasing five to twenty cents, and bags of coffee will retail in supermarkets for a dollar more than their current price.

Starbucks Announces Price Hike

The prices will depend on the region, but we're likely to see Tall and Venti sized lattes go up between 15 to 20 cents, Grande and Venti coffees to go up 10 to 15 cents, but no increase on Grande lattes, Tall coffees, or their popular Frappacinos.

While the exact reasoning behind the price hike wasn't mentioned, a Starbucks spokesperson said, "There are many factors that contribute to our pricing decisions, including competitive dynamics and our overall cost structure."

This price increase comes just two months after Dunkin Donuts and Folgers raised the own coffee prices.

Starbucks...it has been fun but when you dictate and then ask me for more money?.....You're a liberal gold digger with no future.

I sold my shares a month ago . I knew the CEO was a big donor to Obama . Turns out he was one of those CEO's on those secret meetings with Obama around same time . Afterwards he comes out in favor to high wages an starts raising prices across the board an again on certain drinks .
So he is for higher wages as long as WE Pay for it . Nope not me , thru with them now as customer also !

Their coffee is no higher than any other coffee store. But go on back to McDonalds.

I knew it. Initially sounded like Starbucks was doing a good deed be paying for college. But all that was a scam. Customers are really flipping the bill. What a lot of BS.
