Starbucks is hiking its prices again.
The coffee chain will start raising prices on select drinks by as much as 30 cents a beverage beginning July 12.
According to a news release, the company accidentally implemented the higher prices ahead of time, resulting in some customers being overcharged.
Starbucks said it will reimburse anyone who believes they were overcharged.
Starbucks last raised prices about a year ago.

On July 12, Starbucks is planning a small price increase on select beverages. Unfortunately, that price adjustment was prematurely entered into the point of sale systems in our U.S. company-operated stores. As a result, some customers were charged incorrectly. The maximum any customer could have been overcharged is 30 cents per beverage.
The error has been corrected and we sincerely apologize to our customers for the inconvenience. If a customer believes this mistake impacted the price of their beverage, we encourage them to please contact Starbucks Customer Service at 1-800-782-7282, and we will gladly make this right.
