Iced coffee.... Why so expensive?

Is it just me or is the price of a iced coffee at a coffee shop seem a little high?

 Well the buzz is that not only with the up tick in bean prices partly to blame but it's the ice, the special cup, the amount of coffee used in iced coffee.

Cry me a river! A typical 16 oz iced coffee is over $2.75 in my location. If you cant turn a profit at that price on something that is over 90% water. Your overhead is out of control.

Oh! it takes a lot of ice they say and ice is expensive to make or buy.
 The cup is not a typical paper cup and is more expensive.
 It takes almost twice as much coffee to make iced coffee.
Bean prices are going up.

Sounds like big oil talking to me.

Or perhaps big coffee.
