The Latest Starbucks Mugs

Been There – Buenos Aires

Starbucks Been There – Buenos Aires complements Argentinian collection of BT mugs. It was no surprise to see it being released as Buenos Aires is the largest city and the capital of Argentina. The city, which name can be translated as “fair winds”, is the second-most visited city of Latin America and the top tourist destination. It is well known for its preserved Eclectic European architecture and rich cultural life. Interesting to know, that it’s neither part of Buenos Aires Province nor it’s capital.… Read more

Been There – Argentina

I can finally get back and review some mugs from South America released through 2018-2019. Let me start with Been There – Argentina. This one is designed using green colors. Most of the symbols from the mug represent flora and fauna of the country. Here’s what I was able to identify:
– The Andes is the longest continental mountain range in the world which stretches across all South America. It is the highest mountain range outside of Asia with the highest mountain Aconcagua being 22,837ft (6,960.8 meters) high.… Read more

You Are Here – Bucharest

Again, thanks to a kind Facebook user, the most recent YAH release has popped up on my radar. This time it is You Are Here – Bucharest mug which was designed using many shades of blue. The front of the mug is occupied with architectural points of interest from this Romanian city:
– The Romanian Athenaeum (Ateneul Român) is a concert hall opened in 1888. It became a landmark of the city and hosts concerts on an almost daily basis.
– Triumphal Arch (Arcul de Triumf) is a stone version of the previously built wooden arch.… Read more

You Are Here – Valencia

Starbucks You Are Here – Valencia mug has been revealed by an avid collector from Spain. I really like how they pictured The Falles (Fallas) – a traditional celebration held in commemoration of Saint Joseph and specifically La Cremà. The latter is a culmination point of the celebration when all “fallas” (decorations which include huge dolls) are burnt down. That’s what those “people on fire” are on the front of the mug.
Stay tuned for more pics.… Read more

You Are Here – Oktoberfest

There were some rumors about this mug coming, yet the release of Starbucks You Are Here – Oktoberfest has caught me by surprise. Thanks to a friend, here are some exclusive photos from which you can see that the new mug has all the elements from five Oktoberfest Icons combined in one!
This includes:
– Lederhosen and Dirndl (traditional costumes worn in Austria and Germany)
– The Bavarian pretzel which is a classic Oktoberfest snack (makes good pair with beer!)
– Beer and Würstl (Bavarian sausages) is another inseparable pair and symbol of the festival
– Krinoline which has been present at the Oktoberfest since 1924.… Read more

You Are Here – Jinghong

Starbucks You Are Here – Jinghong mug has been revealed by a Facebook user today. Yes, another one has joined numerous family of Chinese mugs already available in stores.
Jinghong is a city in the far south of China’s Yunnan province. It was founded in 1180 under the name of Chiang Hung and has been always under the radar of major surrounding powers like Burma(Myanmar), Siam(now Thailand), and China.
The picture I have doesn’t allow me to properly review design elements, however, I do see Jinghong Primitive Forest Park.… Read more

You Are Here – Warsaw

I somehow missed to add You Are Here – Warsaw mug to the site, even though it was released quite some time ago – in October 2018! And thanks to an attentive reader of this blog, the capital of Poland makes it’s appearance here. Anyway, here are some items from the mug:
– The Royal Castle has served as the official residence of the Polish monarchs for centuries. It is located in the Castle Square, at the entrance to the Warsaw Old Town.… Read more

Been There Ornament – Maryland 2

Since Starbucks is on hold with new releases, I decided to check the status of the “second versions” which I expected to come out. After the update of the Maryland Been There mug, the release of the matching v2 ornament was just the matter of time. And here it is, Been There Ornament – Maryland v2
As you can see from the image below, the only difference is switching “Chesapeake State” nickname, which didn’t make any sense anyway, with the official tree of the state, White Oak.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Scotland

It was just yesterday that I wondered if there were any new releases on Friday, as it usually happens, and voila, someone reveals a picture of You Are Here Ornament – Scotland today. Here’s the link to the bigger mug for comparison.
“Nessie”, Loch Ness Monster, is still there as an essential part of the local folklore.
I would also like to mention the Great Highland bagpipe on the other side of the mug. Interesting enough, while when we think of bagpipe, we remember Scotland, it came from Spain in the 15th century.… Read more
