Starbucks Raises Prices: What Do You Think?

Talk about hitting where it hurts -- Starbucks coffee in the Atlanta area is pricier now.

The coffeehouse chain said Tuesday that it is increasing prices about 1 percent on some drinks, including the "tall" coffee. That's about a 10-cent increase. Most Sunbelt states are included, but not Florida.

The company says it is trying to recoup higher costs.

For many, Starbucks is about more than coffee. It's a great place for business meetings, dates and just hanging out with others from the 'hood. The company website lists five stores with a Suwanee street address, with some located inside other stores, such as Target and Kroger.

So now we ask, what do you think about this price increase? Take our poll, and tell us in the comments.
