The Latest Starbucks Mugs

Been There Christmas – Philippines

Starbucks Been There Christmas Philippines mug is the Holiday Edition of the regular mug that I’ve reviewed two years ago. If you compare these two mugs side by side (see the picture below), it becomes obvious that they’re quite different. Looking back at the holiday releases from previous years, I expected small elements added or replaced to introduce that Christmas spirit: trees are replaced with Christmas trees, gifts, snowmen, candy canes, etc. With the Been There Christmas Philippines mug, Starbucks decided to go that extra mile to make it unique.… Read more

Been There Christmas – Pike Place 3

With the holiday season approaching fast, Starbucks delights us with the release of the Been There Christmas Pike Place v3 mug. It looks similar to the last year’s release, at first glance, however, when giving it a second look it becomes obvious that the new mug’s color is much darker, making it black, almost. If you decide to buy this mug online, you need to pay attention, as the pictures might be deceiving, depending on the light. To be absolutely sure, ask for the picture of the bottom, which clearly shows the year.… Read more

You Are Here – Vienna 2

The brand new Starbucks You Are Here Vienna v2 mug brings a brighter design and more vivid colors when compared to the previously released Vienna v1 mug. The front of the mug is now occupied by the gloriette in the Schönbrunn Palace garden, which is considered the largest and probably best-known gloriette in the world. It was the last building constructed in the garden in 1775 to serve as both a focal point and a lookout point for the garden.… Read more

You Are Here – Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris

The release of this mug caused a stir among collectors, as this always happens with Disney-related items. And it is even more special this time, because the You Are Here Avengers Campus Disneyland Paris mug is dedicated to the Marvel-themed “land” (an area in the park). The campus was opened on July 20, 2022. You can find the following attractions inside:

It doesn’t necessarily mean that all 23 campuses are getting the mug, however, I am sure, we can expect more.… Read more

Been There – Notre Dame

Starbucks Been There – Notre Dame mug is expanding the Campus Collection, making me question how many are there planned for us. The University of Notre Dame du Lac, a.k.a. Notre Dame, a.k.a. ND, is a private Catholic research university in Notre Dame, Indiana. Established in 1842, the University consists of seven schools and colleges now and is considered one of the top universities in the US. Students of the ND enroll in more than fifty master’s, doctoral, and professional degrees in law, science, engineering, medicine, architecture, and business.… Read more

Been There Ornaments – country of origin

Not sure how important this information will be for most collectors, however, I feel obligated to bring this new interesting fact to your attention. If you collected Been There Ornaments from the very beginning, you probably noticed that all the US and Canada ornaments have a “Made in Thailand” label on the bottom. It was different, however, for some ornaments from Asia, like the Philippines, these were made in China. For instance, you can see Pennsylvania and Philippines ornaments side by side at the very top of the collage.… Read more
