Starbucks is set to raise many prices by one percent in the Northeast and will up the price of a "tall" latte by 10 cents, according to a story in The Huffington Post.
The chain's most popular drink, however, a 16-ounce "grande" brewed coffee, is not affected by the price hikes, a Starbucks spokesperson told Reuters.
For those who need their morning fix, the price hikes will likely be shaken off in the name of avoiding the dreaded "falling asleep on one's desk at 1 p.m." syndrome.
The real question is: Who actually sells the best cup of Joe? Starbucks is the world's largest coffee chain, but are its drinks better than the rest?
