The Latest Starbucks Mugs

Star Wars Been There – Endor

Star Wars Been There – Endor is a mug for a small forested moon that orbited the Tana (Endor), a gas giant from the Endor system. Other names of the moon included the Forest Moon of Endor or the Sanctuary Moon.
The front of the mug shows Ewoks, native inhabitants of the moon. They were primitive but curious and friendly furred bipeds that used spears, slings, and knives as weapons. On the other hand, they appeared to be quick learners of advanced technologies and concepts brought by the Empire.… Read more

Star Wars Been There – Batuu

Here’s Star Wars Been There – Batuu, the release that I’ve mentioned in my previous post. It makes it the fourth mug from this mini collection.
In the Star Wars universe, Batuu is a remote terrestrial planet on the edge of the galaxy’s Outer Rim Territories. Batuu was once covered by massive trees, that later transformed into stone towers after a cataclysm. These formations, referred to by local Batuuans as “spires”, became landmarks for settlers. Black Spire Outpost is the largest settlement on the planet, which was a busy stop for travelers before the invention of hyperspace travel.… Read more

Batuu, Tatooine and Endor mugs have been released

Not just two but three Starbucks Star Wars mugs have been revealed this morning by Disney. Batuu, Tatooine, and Endor are now available for purchase at Disney Shop, but the demand is huge. You have to act fast if you want to get them. I am expecting the new mugs to be gone very soon and who knows when the new batch is going to come out! It is limited to two mugs of the same kind per customer, but I am sure that won’t stop people from buying more and reselling for a profit later.… Read more

New Star Wars-themed mugs from Starbucks

It seems it became a good tradition for Starbucks to release new Star Wars-themed mugs on May 4th. The rumor floating around has it that the new locations from the famous universe are about to be added to the collection. As a reminder, a year ago I reviewed the first three mugs from this series: Hoth, Bespin, and Dagobah and did mention that I expected other cities and planets to follow. I am particularly satisfied to see one of the new releases to be the mug from my prediction list, which is Tatooine!… Read more

Unique mugs selection in Starbucks stores in Vietnam

Starbucks stores in Vietnam found themselves in a unique situation, where they can offer four different collections of mugs, ornaments, and demis, some of them 10 years apart between the releases. And I think this is great, it gives the customers an option to choose what they really like. They are not forced to only buy mugs from the latest collection as it happens in most other countries.
The picture below shows the display from the store in Nha Trang city.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang

Starbucks has opened two new stores in Vietnam, both in Nha Trang city. Both have promos during the first two days from the opening. You Are Here Ornament – Nha Trang was given as a gift with any purchase on April 28th at the Nha Trang Center location! At the time I am posting this, the day is over in Vietnam, but it is not too late to get the Bearista Key Chain for any purchase on Apr 29th.
Nha Trang makes it the sixth YAH ornament from Vietnam and raises the question of how is it possible to still release YAHs, with Been There Vietnam mugs already on the shelves?… Read more

You Are Here – Karlovy Vary

I suspect that Starbucks You Are Here Karlovy Vary mug was planned a long time ago, but considering the circumstances, this release was delayed. I very much like this nice design with soft colors and certain bright red spots. Those symbolize the fall colors of the mountains that surround the city and also the red roofs of its buildings.
Karlovy Vary is the most visited spa town in the Czech Republic with numerous hot springs. The German name of the city is Karlsbad and it had a mostly German-speaking population till 1945,
Here are some points of interest that designers of the mug were inspired by:
– The front of the mug showcases the historical buildings of the city.… Read more

You Are Here – St. Andrews

Thanks to a message and photos from the reader of this blog, it came to my attention that Scotland is getting a new mug. Starbucks You Are Here St. Andrews is joining an already big family of the UK mugs.
St. Andrews is located on the east coast of Scotland, not far from Edinburgh, the capital of the country. The town is named after Saint Andrew the Apostle and is home to the University of St Andrews, the oldest university in Scotland (and the third oldest in the English-speaking world).… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan

Mini mugs have a special place in my heart and I am always excited to see the new ones coming out. This release is no exception, please meet Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Kazakhstan that makes it the 150th little “ornie” from this collection. Interestingly enough, there is no sign of the bigger mug being released yet, but something tells me this is just a matter of time. I don’t recall a country ornament without a full-sized mug from Starbucks, do you?… Read more

Been There – Delhi

At the very first glance it might seem that Starbucks Been There Delhi is the mug for the same city as we’ve seen within the YAH collection: New Delhi. Make no mistake, these are two different entities. New Delhi is an administrative district within the borders of Delhi. In other words, it’s a city within another city.
Delhi is one of the oldest cities in the world and has always been a dominant trading and commercial center in northern India.… Read more
