(SEATTLE) -- If your a fan of Starbucks coffee, get ready to dig deeper into your pockets because the price of their java is going up in certain regions.
The Seattle-based coffee chain is hiking up prices at Northeast stores and locations in the Sunbelt, although California and Florida are spared for now.
Starbucks says the costs of "coffee, fuel and other commodities" are rising so they have to pass the increases onto their customers.
According to the company, some items will increase by an average of 1 percent. Tall brewed coffees in New York City, for example, will cost 10 cents more. Other items, like grande brewed coffees, will not go up in price.
These latest prices increases follow ones that already affected Starbucks stores last November in the Pacific Northwest, California, the Midwest and Hawaii.
Economists believe these changes could hurt Starbucks, which has been on the rebound over the past year after the recession changed the coffee drinking habits of consumers.
