TORONTO  – 

That jolt of java at Tim Hortons is going to cost you a bit more.

Canada’s iconic fast-food chain raised some of their “hot beverage and breakfast menu items” on Wednesday due to “operational costs.”

The price increases were billed as “slight” to customers via laminated cards posted on cash registers, including one spotted at a Toronto Tim Hortons location, which was addressed to “our valued guests.”

A request for comment and details from Tim Hortons — whose parent company RBI (Restaurant Brands International) on Wednesday announced lower quarterly profits and an expansion into Spain — was not immediately answered.

But the response from Twitter users to the price increases was swift.

“Thanks @TimHortons for saving me money. You raised the price of coffee and now I’ll drink elsewhere,” one person tweeted.

“And now this price increase? Wow, you’ve changed. #TimHortons,” another said.

Tim Hortons last raised the price of hot beverages and breakfast sandwiches in 2014 by about 10 cents.

RBI previously has been accused by Tim Hortons franchisees in Canada and the U.S. of pinching pennies, increasing expenses and general mismanagement, which it has denied.
