Brace yourselves, coffee lovers.
The coffee chain didn’t actually plan to announce the change this soon, but the price increase was prematurely adjusted into the system which incorrectly charged customers — thus, forcing Starbucks to do some explaining.
As part of their planned annual price hike, select beverages (we don’t know which ones yet) will go up by 30 cents. Last year’s increase was around 5 to 20 cents. According to Eater, “the price of a large coffee landed at $2.45, up 10 cents from 2013’s price of $2.35.”
