You Are Here – Basel

Starbucks You Are Here – Basel was released almost a month ago and I am finally adding it to the list.
Basel is the third most populous city in Switzerland and is located on the border with two other European countries – Germany and France. Interestingly enough, some of Basel’s suburbs are located outside of the country. Switzerland is a member of the Schengen Area so no passport check is required when crossing the border from France or Germany, however, since it is not a member of the EU, you have to declare any goods you bring in.… Read more

You Are Here – Kuwait National Day 2020

Starbucks You Are Here – Kuwait National Day 2020 is the third Middle Eastern mug dedicated to National Holidays. As a reminder, YAE and KSA National Day editions were released last year and I didn’t expect similar mugs from Starbucks anymore.
The design of this new release resembles the design of the regular Kuwait YAH, but with green and red colors prevailing. The skylines on the fronts of the mugs are not identical though. If you take a closer look, you can see the following changes:
– Al Hamra Tower (1,358 ft, the tallest building in Kuwait) – has been moved from the center to the right, replacing Mushroom Towers.… Read more

You Are Here – Schiphol

Starbucks You Are Here – Schiphol seems to be another mug that was never released. It was brought to my attention by a kind reader with an eagle eye. The picture is coming from a promo video that was posted 2 years ago, this is why I believe that YAH – Schiphol is a prototype and very few of them if not just one were produced. I did spend some time trying to find any mention of this mug anywhere else, but no luck.… Read more

You Are Here – Morocco

Starbucks You Are Here – Morocco is another fresh release reveal that I would like to thank my reader for. She has confirmed to me that Morocco and Rabat are now available in stores.
This new mug has a bright colorful design showing multiple small boats along the sandy shore with the city skyline in the background. We see three pieces of the traditional Moroccan pottery, above that. There are three cities in Morocco that specialize in ceramic artistry: Meknes, Safi, and Fez.… Read more

You Are Here – Rabat

I would like to thank my reader, who kindly provided the image of Starbucks You Are Here – Rabat mug. The release of this mug is another proof that YAH series still has some steam!
The mug is designed using some colors and showcases the Chellah or Shalla on the front. This fortress was built in pre-Roman and pre-Islamic times, then abandoned in 1154 AD. It was later used as a necropolis, a holy complex that included a mosque, minaret (can be seen on the top of the front of the mug), and royal tombs.… Read more

You Are Here – Rhodes

Even though we’ve just witnessed the release of the first BT mug outside of the Americas, YAH series is not over yet. This is Starbucks You Are Here – Rhodes mug from Greece.
Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands of Greece and is also the island group’s ancient capital. The island and the city have a rich historical past, which you can tell by its old buildings and monuments. Thanks to that and the great climate with long warm summers, it’s a very popular destination for tourists from all around the world.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Italy

With Christmas just around the corner, I gave up on seeing Holiday Edition mugs from Italy. Boy, was I wrong! It has been revealed today, that Bel Paese gets both Christmas full-size mug and ornament.
As you can see, You Are Here Christmas – Italy has traditional (for the last two years) design with the red handle. Let me remind you, that there are not that many stores in this country. In fact, only two cities have Starbucks stores – Milan (most of those) and Turin (only one so far).… Read more

You Are Here – Nantong

This is a new release from China, Starbucks You Are Here – Nantong mug.
Nantong is a city in Jiangsu province. It is located on the northern bank of the Yangtze River, near the river mouth. It was and remains an important port due to deep waters and canals. Interesting to note, that Nantong is getting further from the seashore year by year, due to the silt added by the Yangtze River to its delta.
– The front of the mug is occupied by the Sutong Yangtze River Bridge which connects Nantong and Changshu.… Read more

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
