SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The price of your prized morning cup of Starbucks is about to go up.

The coffee chain plans to raise prices on select drinks by as much as 30 cents.

Starbucks says a computer glitch that overcharged customers recently caused the price adjustment to go into effect early – and for people to learn about the price hike earlier than expected.

The change will take effect on July 12.
