The Latest Starbucks Mugs

You Are Here – Sihanoukville

Starbucks You Are Here – Sihanoukville is the recent release for the YAH series from Cambodia. It seems the company still has a couple of aces up its sleeve. What caught my attention, though, it doesn’t seem that designers spelled the name of the city properly, namely, they used a space between “Sihanouk” and “ville”. I can’t find this way of spelling this city anywhere else, so it looks like an error to me. However don’t expect the “fixed” v2, as no one is going to release that at the twilight of the YAH series.… Read more

Been There – Peruvian Mugs

There were reports from locals that they could not find Lima mug, which I reviewed earlier. I thought there was a delay and I still expected it to come out sooner or later. Imagine my surprise, when one of the followers revealed the news that not one but four Peruvian mugs hit the stores today! I have these exclusive photos to share with you on behalf of the kind reader of this blog.
Interesting enough three out of four mugs have either Llama or Alpaca on them, and this is no surprise since these animals are native to Peru.… Read more

Been There – Cusco

I now think that Starbucks Been There – Cusco mug had to be released no matter what since the Constitution of Peru designates it as the Historical Capital of Peru (it was the historic capital of the Inca Empire between the 13th and 16th century). It attracts more than 2 million visitors a year as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and a major touristic destination.
The full review is yet to come, stay tuned. The photos were offered by the follower of the blog.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Malta

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Malta has been finally released, after being in “rumored” state for almost six months. Not sure what took Starbucks so long, some production issues maybe. Anyway, it’s here and ready to join your collection.
As always, the mini mug kept all the elements of the design of the bigger mug. Here are some of Malta’s symbols to see:
– Bażilika Santwarju tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu (Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) – which is probably Valletta’s most iconic landmark with its large dome dominating over city skyline.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland

Great news for UK collectors: Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland is out! The regular Scotland Ornament is already not that easy one to get, and I bet it will be even worse for this Holiday Edition mini mug. My understanding, Scotland is considered a “remote country” compared to Central Europe.
When looking at the regular version these are the changes I’ve noticed in the new release:
– The highland cow got the Christmas Hat. Btw, highland cattle are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long, wavy, woolly coats, which can be of multiple colors.… Read more

You Are Here – United Arab Emirates National Day 2019

Very much like adjacent country, UAE is getting its Holiday release – Starbucks You Are Here – United Arab Emirates National Day 2019 mug. As it states in the title, it has been released to commemorate UAE’s Union Day between the seven emirates which is celebrated annually on December 2.
The comparison picture of the regular and Holiday edition mugs below show that in order to accommodate the space for a longer title, which is also dubbed in Arabic, designers had to rearrange certain elements on the mug:
– The palm tree and the horse became smaller and moved further from the city skyline
– In order to fill the gap, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah hotel has moved from being on the right of other buildings to the left.… Read more
