Latest Mugs

Been There – Denver 2

Here’s another “updated” design, which has been spotted by a Facebook user today. The change we see for Starbucks Been There Denver v2 is kind of controversial. Because even though Denver’s Wikipedia page mentions “the Mile-High City” nickname once, I could not find it written with the hyphen anywhere else, including official site of the city of Denver. With that being said, I don’t consider this mug to be the “error fix”, but advise to buy v1 as soon as possible as they are going to disappear from stores pretty soon.… Read more

Been There – Arizona 2

Ain’t no error fix, but the desire to meet the people’s demand in removing “the Sand Hill State” wording from the mug. Even though no one heard of this nickname, some resources claim it is old, but legit. Nonetheless, with the release of Starbucks Been There Arizona v2 mug, that controversial element has been replaced with lizard. It’s worth mentioning, that ornament v2 was spotted before the bigger mug.

Been There – Michigan 2

As you probably remember, in my previous post, I’ve predicted the appearance of Starbucks Been There Michigan v2 mug. And here it is, spotted online. The only difference this version is bringing, is “Winter Water Wonderland” slogan being replaced with “Water Winter Wonderland”. I do consider the Michigan v1 a State error mug, since this is the actual fix of the mistake made in the design. We’re now left guessing, why it took Starbucks so long to replace the mug, but it could easily be negligence, human factor.… Read more

You Are Here – Turkey

It took Starbucks six city mugs before releasing You Are Here Turkey country mug. Unfortunately I was not able to identify the building on the front of the mug, but it is definitely something from ancient times.
Thanks to a comment below the post, I’ve realized I was wrong about the building on the front of the mug. It is in fact Anıtkabir (literally, “memorial tomb”) – the mausoleum of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. It was opened to public on September 1st, 1953 to honour the leader of the Turkish War of Independence and the founder and first President of the Republic of Turkey.… Read more

You Are Here – Romania

It is now confirmed that Starbucks You Are Here – Romania has been released along with Christmas Edition mug. This one has popping colors with the flag of Romania standing out, which is a vertical tricolour of blue, yellow, and red. Interesting enough, this flag is almost identical to the one of Republic of Chad, with only difference being that the blue is lighter on the flag of Romania or more specifically, ‘cobalt’ opposed to Chad’s ‘indigo’ shade. On the top of that, two other countries share similar flags:
– the Republic of Moldova – same colors and stripe size, but with coat of arms added to the yellow stripe
– Andorra, while having the same colors, has coat of arms on the yellow stripe while, which is also wider than two other stripes… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Romania

No regular mug has been released for Romania, nonetheless here’s the picture of Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Romania. In other words, Starbucks went straight ahead with Holiday Edition. While waiting for a better pics, I can only recognize Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest. It was designed and supervised by a team of 700 architects with the Anca Petrescu being the head architect. The construction has started in 1984 and even now it’s still not completed. Unfortunately there are some dark sides of it, as it was ordered by Romanian dictator, Nicolae Ceaușescu, who needed it at any cost.… Read more
