Last week Starbucks announces that they will be teaming up with their Baristas to help cover their college costs. This week prices go up? Coincidence?

The prices for those “fancy coffee” drinks that you must have to keep you going throughout the day are going up. Albeit just a few cents:

• 15 to 20 cents: Tall and Venti Latte and Mocha drinks in some markets.

• 10 to 15 cents: Grande and Venti brewed coffees in most markets.

• No increase: Grande Latte, Tall Brewed Coffee and Frappuccino beverages, in most stores.

Prices for food are expected to stay the same. According to the USA Today, Starbucks reps say this has nothing to do with their offer to help employees with college expense.
