You Are Here – Trondheim

Starbucks You Are Here – Trondheim is a mug for the third most populous municipality in Norway located on the south shore of Trondheim Fjord.

The design of the mug is very simple, showcasing the views of the city with old buildings located right on the water.… Read more

You Are Here – Luxembourg

Starbucks You Are Here – Luxembourg is the first YAH mug for this country. Something tells me it will be the only one since this collection is being phased out. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe but is also one of the richest countries in the world as per GDP per capita and purchasing power.
The design of the mug is very laconic with few elements (apart from the city street with the old buildings):
– The Adolphe Bridge is a double-decked arch bridge in Luxembourg City.… Read more

You Are Here – Cape Town

Even though the release of Starbucks You Are Here – Cape Town has been delayed for two years, it is still nice to see it finally coming out. Better late than never, they say. This release is accompanying the opening of the first Starbucks store in this South African city. It was announced back in 2018, but for some reason did not happen. The store will be open to the public this Thursday, but it seems that some people were able to get this mug earlier, probably at the party for the media that was held today.… Read more

Starbucks You Are Here – Thessaloniki is another mug from Greece, released recently. Thessaloniki is the second-largest city in the country, located on the north shore of the Aegean Sea. As pretty much anything in Greece it has a long history of periods of prosperity as well as periods of wars and occupation. Some of which led to considerable destruction of the city buildings. Nonetheless, it was always a major port and hub of the Kingdom of Macedon then the Roman Empire then the Byzantine Empire then the Ottoman Empire.… Read more

You Are Here – Crete

Starbucks You Are Here – Crete is an island mug rather than city mug if you will. Crete or Kríti is the largest of the Greek islands with a rich history. There are settlements found on the island, which date back to 130,000 years ago. Crete was later the center of the Minoan, Europe’s first advanced civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC) and hence full of myths and legends. Names and characters like Icarus, King Minos, the Minotaur, and even, Atlantis are all coming from Cretan mythology.… Read more

You Are Here – Sharjah

Starbucks You Are Here – Sharjah is the city mug from the United Arab Emirates which is the third-largest city in the country. Sharjah is also the name of the emirate, which is interesting in a way that it has a coastline of both the Persian Gulf to the west and the Gulf of Oman to the east.
