BROOKLYN - If you're a Starbucks fan, your coffee could be getting more expensive, again. 

The chain will charge between 5 and 20 cents extra for some drinks at most of its stores within the U.S. A small or large brewed coffee will go up by about 10 cents. 

In a statement, Starbucks said that it regularly evaluates its pricing to balance the need to run a profitable business while still making customers happy. 

News 12 talked to Brooklyn coffee drinkers to see just how much they're willing to pay for a cup of Joe. Many said the most they will pay is less than what Starbucks charges.
