Hong Kong Disneyland is celebrating 15 Years of Magical Dreams with exclusive Starbucks merchandise.

Been There Christmas – Pike Place 2

This could easily be the most exciting Starbucks release of the 2020 Holiday Season. Been There Christmas – Pike Place v2 introduces a completely unique design, never seen before. As you can see from the picture, the color of the mug is something in between chocolate and hickory with golden letters. The same gold color was also used to outline the symbols of Pike Place Market. I like this new design a lot! Let me know in the comments about your thoughts on this mug.… Read more

Been There – Turks & Caicos

Starbucks Been There – Turks & Caicos is the mug for a British Overseas Territory which consists of two groups of islands: the larger Caicos Islands and smaller Turks Islands. Being the perfect touristic destination it welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors each year, which is a lot, considering the size of the islands and the population of about 40k people.
Surely enough, sea life exploration and numerous water activities are what inspired the designers of the mug.

Been There – Cayman Islands

Starbucks Been There – Cayman Islands is the mug for the autonomous British Overseas Territory in the western Caribbean Sea. George Town is the capital and the most populous city in the country which consists of three islands: Grand Cayman (the largest), Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman (the smallest).

Been There – Santa Cruz de la Sierra

Starbucks Been There – Santa Cruz de la Sierra is the only city mug from Bolivia, with no country mug released so far. This city is the largest in Bolivia being its principal industrial center. It first founded in 1561 by Spanish explorer Ñuflo de Chavez. Interestingly enough, the location of the city has been moved several times since then (125 miles in total to the west).
Designers used a green palette for the design of the mug, which reflects the colors of the flag of the city – two green stripes divided by a white stripe.… Read more

Been There – Uruguay

Starbucks Been There – Uruguay is another mug from South America that I had no chance to add, even though it was released back in 2018. The country, whose official name is the Oriental Republic of Uruguay, borders Brazil on the north and Argentina on the south. Montevideo is the capital and the largest city of the country.
During the colonization times, the ownership of these lands was not very well defined. It was always under influence of both Spain and Portugal.… Read more

Been There – Ciudad de Mexico

Starbucks Been There – Ciudad de Mexico is a mug for the capital and largest city of Mexico and the most populous city in North America. Did you know that Mexico City is located at the altitude of 7000 ft and hence is considered a high-altitude city? It is also the oldest capital in the Americas. The city was originally built on an island of Lake Texcoco by the Aztecs in 1325 as Tenochtitlan, which was almost completely destroyed by the Spanish in 1521.… Read more

Been There – Guanajuato

I believe that Starbucks Been There – Guanajuato is a city mug, based on its design, which is mostly featuring the city’s landmarks.
Here are they:
– Alhóndiga de Granaditas was originally built as grain storage but later played a major role in the first battle of the Mexican War of Independence between insurgents and royalist troops on September 28, 1810.
– The Guanajuato tunnels are a series of wide channels that extended under the city and help divert traffic away from the city center.… Read more

Been There – Guadalajara

Starbucks Been There – Guadalajara is a mug for the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico. The city is an important center of business, finance, technology, science, culture, and education in the country.
Guadalajara is considered to be the home of Mariachi which is a well-known genre of Regional Mexican music. The usual mariachi group consists of as many as eight violins, two trumpets and at least one guitar, including a high-pitched vihuela and an acoustic bass guitar, called a guitarrón. You can see four Mariachi men on the front of the mug.… Read more
