This goes for "most Minnesota stores" as well.

If you're anything like my wife, who absolutely needs her coffee every morning, then I know that headline caught your immediate attention and now you're probably thinking: "So how much is a little more, and what coffee shop's involved?"

The answers: Starbucks, and not much.


According to Consumerist and GoMN, Starbucks customers will be spending around 15-20 cents more on their brewed coffee. See, not bad.

Perhaps you've already noticed, but several price hikes have also affected a few of their espresso drinks, and select food items.

Not every store saw the same increases, but just know that they're out there.

If you have the Starbucks app, you can check the price of something at a specific Starbucks... so there's that if you're really concerned.

In the grand scheme of things this probably isn't a huge deal. If you need your coffee, then you need your coffee.
