An Update on our Standardized Cup Size

An Update on our Standardized Cup Size

February 28, 2022

Immense change is happening around the globe, and as unprecedented as things can be, it's important for us at Cartel to keep pace.

With that being said, due to the elevated costs of green coffee, alternative milks, cups, lids, rent, water, gas, raw materials and other utilities, we'll be moving forward with a single, 12 oz drink size offering in our retail locations – with the exception of 6 oz cups for traditional drinks – beginning March 1.

We know you have questions, and we have answers:

Why one size?

We moved to a single size offering to match the rising prices of ingredients and maintain our quality standards.

Did you increase your prices? 

We increased prices to contest with the higher costs associated with our business, preserve the caliber of our beverages, and to continue providing top-level service.

What if I want more than 12 ounces?

If you'd like more than 12 oz, we are happy to offer you a refill on daily drip, teas, and cold brews at a discounted price.

Is there an incentive to bring your own cup? 

Yes! All customers who bring their own cup will get 25 cents off their drink.

If you have any questions or comments about our price increase or sourcing standards, you can voice those responses by reaching out to
