Been There – Charlotte 2

This is the sixth BT city mug with error so far. With the release of Been There Charlotte v2, Starbucks has fixed the names of the streets on the sign on the front of the mug. Instead of “Tyron st.” and “Trader st.”, which is wrong, it now says “Tryon st.” and “Trade st.” So again, we see two errors on the same mug. Nice job, Starbucks.
As for the intersection itself, it splits Charlotte Center City (a.k.a Uptown) into four neighborhoods.… Read more

Been There – Detroit 2

This was one of the first mugs from BT collection added to the site, yet it was still a preview. The actual release only happened today, and as you can guess, the delay was also caused by a misprint. Starbucks Been There Detroit v2 is missing “Startup city USA” “nickname” above Ambassador Bridge (which was replaced by two clouds). I, sincerely, tried to research where is that “nickname” coming from and can only assume it was supposed to represent the new era of entrepreneurship of Detroit.… Read more

Been There – Atlanta 2

Starbucks Been There Atlanta v2 has been released a couple weeks ago, yet I had no pictures of v1 to compare with. Now I do. As you can see from the collage below, the actual misprint was “Chattahoochie river” instead of “Сhattahoochee river”. It still amazes me how bad quality control at Starbucks was, while designing this series.

Been There – Canada

I somehow missed to publish Starbucks Been There Canada mug. By doing that I am finishing the Canadian BT series so far (hoping there will be more in the future). As for this particular mug, Starbucks has combined most of the cliches about Canada existing. … Read more

Been There – San Diego 2

We have finally got the confirmation what was the fix for Starbucks Been There San Diego v2 mug. It was actually saying “Americas finest city in motion” which doesn’t make any sense and it was replaced with “America’s finest city”
See two mugs side by side (San Diego v1 photo – credits to Facebook user James Y. Ku):

Been There – Delaware 2

We’ve been all waiting for the official release of this mug for quite a while. As you remember it was delayed due to an error made on the mug. As you can see, the “fixed” Starbucks Been There Delaware v2 mug is missing “Lower Slower” nickname on the front. So instead of making it “Slower Lower” they replaced it with crab. My guess, this phrase is copyrighted, and Starbucks decided to completely remove it, in order to avoid any lawsuits in the future.… Read more

Been There – Victoria

Starbucks Been There Victoria mug is the most recent release for Canada. It will definitely be in a great demand, yet somewhat easily accessible by Vancouver collectors. Getting there will include using the ferry, since Victoria is located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island… Read more

Been There – Whistler

This is not a province nor capital of the province, yet Starbucks Been There Whistler mug has been released as the part of the new collection too (similar to YAH and Icon). The reason is pretty simple, Whistler is the home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America. … Read more
