You Are Here – Wrocław

Starbucks You Are Here – Wrocław has also been released past weekend. It makes it the fifth Poland YAH (not counting the Christmas version). Is it me or the latest YAHs are all pretty nice looking, at least the colors used are brighter? I think this is great, it means the designers are still investing time and effort into the You Are Here Collection, even though it is set to be phased out.
Wrocław is the largest city in the historical region of Silesia and is located on the banks of the River Oder.… Read more

You Are Here – Poznań

I could not actually believe my eyes when I saw the message from the blog reader about this release. You Are Here – Poznań pretty much questions my belief on how fast YAHs will be replaced with Been There mugs. It seems that we still have some pretty nice releases ahead of us.
Poznań is the fifth-largest and one of the oldest cities in Poland located on the Warta River in the west-central part of the county. Established in the 10th century it has a rich history and for a long time was an important political and religious center of territories that later formed the Duchy of Poland.… Read more

You Are Here – Metzingen

Starbucks You Are Here – Metzingen brings bright colors into this winter season. It makes it the eighteenth German mug (not counting Christmas versions) in the YAH collection
The mug showcases the views of the historical part of this small (with a population of 22,000 people only) city, which, in my opinion, makes the design of the mug look great.
There is a suit on the back of the mug, which, I guess, refers to Hugo Boss brand, that calls Metzingen home.… Read more

You Are Here – Turin

With the release of You Are Here – Turin, Starbucks covers both Italian cities where it actually has stores. It is safe to say that the expansion in “Bel Paese”(beautiful country) is not going as fast as it was expected (or it wasn’t?). Nonetheless, let’s welcome this new colorful mug into the YAH family.
Turin is well known for its Baroque, Rococo, Neo-classical, and Art Nouveau architectures and its numerous palaces, squares, parks, art galleries, museums, theatres, and churches. There was no way to fit them all on the mug, so it was a tough choice for the Starbucks designers.… Read more

You Are Here – Alicante

I’ve almost missed this release from December 2020. It seems that Starbucks You Are Here – Alicante came out along with another Spanish mug that I’ve previewed yesterday.
Alicante is located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea with Mount Benacantil in the center of the city. The mountain (or rather the large hill) is 550ft tall and offers an opportunity to explore Santa Bárbara Castle and enjoy the views of the city below. I don’t see it on the front of the mug, but I am sure designers placed it on the back.… Read more

You Are Here – Augsburg

A new mug for Germany was revealed on Starbucks’ Instagram page. You Are Here – Augsburg is available at both stores of the city (Hauptbahnhof and Königsplatz). It is featuring some historic buildings of the city with the clock tower standing out (on the front of the mug). This 230ft tower, called Perlachturm, is attached to the church of St. Peter am Perlach. As a bonus, you can get to the top of the tower to enjoy city views.… Read more

You Are Here – Malaga

Starbucks You Are Here – Malaga mug is coming from Spain, making it the 12th YAH mug from this country, with 10 being regular and 2 Christmas (Spain and Madrid). This new mug has a very colourful design featuring the views of the city.
I would like to mention the fish on the skewer, that you can see on the right side of the front of the mug. These are Espetos de Sardinas, a local classic specialty, which is a must-try dish when visiting Andalusia.… Read more

You Are Here – Stavanger

Starbucks You Are Here – Stavanger was another Norwegian mug released back in 2020. It features the views of the fourth largest city in the country, with the oil industry being a key industry in this region.
I would like to mention a group of words that can be seen stuck in the mountains on the side of the mug. The name of this commemorative monument is “Sverd i fjell” (Swords in Rock). The three 33ft tall bronze swords planted into the rock of a small hill next to the fjord commemorate the historic Battle of Hafrsfjord that took place in the year 872.… Read more

You Are Here – Colmar

Starbucks You Are Here – Colmar is the latest addition to the French mugs collection. The city is located in the north-eastern part of the country, close to the German border. The well-preserved historical center of the city is worth visiting for its numerous architectural landmarks, museums, and of course “La Petite Venise” (Little Venice) – a part of the city along the La Lauch River.
The front of the mug reminds us that Colmar is considered to be the capital of the Alsatian wine region known for its sunny and dry climate ideal for the production of Alsace wine.… Read more

You Are Here – Mulhouse

Starbucks You Are Here – Mulhouse is a city mug from France with a distinctive design. The location of the city close to Swiss and German borders played a significant role in its history. It was a part of the Holy Roman Empire, the Swiss Confederacy, the German Empire, and obviously France throughout the years.
The city is well known for its museums, two of which, the Cité de l’Automobile (a.k.a. the Musée national de l’automobile) and the Cité du Train (a.k.a.… Read more
