The Latest Starbucks Mugs

You Are Here – Kaifeng

Starbucks You Are Here – Kaifeng is a mug for one of the Eight Ancient Capitals of China. It is probably the most known for being the Chinese capital and one of the major trade centers of East Asia under the Song Dynasty. The design of the mug is presented with multiple architectural examples from that era. Here are some of them:
– The Iron Pagoda is a Chinese Buddhist pagoda built-in 1049. What we see now is the second construction.… Read more

You Are Here – Andorra

You Are Here – Andorra made its surprising appearance today. Who could imagine that Starbucks will go ahead with releasing the mug for the country with only one store available? One store only? Why? That’s because Andorra is a microstate on the border of Spain and France. Despite the size though, it has dozens of little villages with the smallest one, Llumeneres, having only one resident officially!
The design of the mug makes an emphasis on “things to do” when visiting the country.… Read more

You Are Here – Nice

Starbucks expands the family of French mugs with this fresh release – You Are Here – Nice, which we greet with joy, as always. This French Riviera’s city is very well known outside of the country for being a perfect holiday gateway with its amazing beaches and mountains, weather, shopping, and restaurants, as well as many other attractions. From the picture, which is kindly provided by a Facebook user, we can only see one landmark:
– Place Masséna on the front of the mug is a historic square which was named for André Masséna (a French military commander).… Read more

You Are Here – Northern Ireland

The release of this mug has been rumored for a couple of weeks now, but no real pictures have been found. Well, thanks to a kind barista who shared the hands-on images, we can now see what Starbucks You Are Here – Northern Ireland looks like. I feel like this one will be a little bit hard to get, given a somewhat limited amount of stores in the country. For those who are planning to visit Belfast any time soon, the advice is to wait till Belfast mug is out.… Read more

Been There – Valparaiso

Starbucks Been There – Valparaiso is the third BT mug from Chile released so far. Valparaiso is a major city and seaport located on the hills of the Pacific Ocean shore. People used to call it “Little San Francisco”, back in the days when it served as a major stopover for ships traveling between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Starbucks designers used the green and blue palette for the mug and by reviewing the points of interest and symbols, it looks like they picked those from both Valparaiso and Viña del Mar (“Vineyard of the Sea”).… Read more

Been There – Santiago

This is Starbucks Been There – Santiago mug released for the capital and largest city of Chile. The city is also known as Santiago de Chile and can literally be translated from Spanish as “Saint-James”. Along with other nearby cities it forms Santiago Metropolitan Region which is home to almost half of the population of the country (around 7 million people live here).
The color palette used for this mug is green, and it seems that architectural points of interest are predominant in the design.… Read more

Been There – Chile

Starbucks Been There – Chile is one of my favorite mugs from South America probably because of the color palette they chose for it. Here are some symbols and points of interest for this country that can be found on the mug:
– The Andes or Andean Mountains (Cordillera de Los Andes) – are the longest continental mountain range in the world with the length of about 4300 miles spanning across seven countries! Aconcagua is the highest peak being 22,841 ft high.… Read more

You Are Here – Changde

Starbucks You Are Here – Changde is supposedly the first one from the new batch of 11 Chinese mugs coming this Fall. You heard it right, Starbucks is adding 11 new YAHs for China in addition to dozens released already. Well, more mugs, more fun. It is also an opportunity to learn something new about the places you’ve never been to before (but probably going to visit someday).
The first mentions of the settlement in this area are dating back to as far as 8,000 years ago.… Read more

Been There – Cordoba

Starbucks Been There – Cordoba is the fifth and the last Argentinian mug from this series for now. It is the second-most populous city in Argentina and one of the oldest Spanish settlements in this region.
Here are some points of interest worth visiting:
– La Cañada de Córdoba is the canal going through the whole city. It’s a quaint, tree-lined avenue with iconic, stone walls and bridges that is a great pleasure to stroll along.
– The Arc de Córdoba (Arco de Córdoba) was built in 1943 and can sometimes be seen on the postcards as the symbol of the city.… Read more

Been There – Rosario

Starbucks Been There – Rosario is yet another mug from Argentina. Rosario is the third most populous city in the country and a major port sitting on the west bank of the Paraná River. It is worth noting that it’s still not clear what is the actual foundation date of the city. Some say it’s October 7, 1793, however, most of the historians claim that the only right date is August 3, 1852, when town known as Pago de Los Arroyos (“land of the streams”) was declared a city.… Read more
