The Latest Starbucks Mugs

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 Ornament Christmas – Sweden

To my surprise, Starbucks releases You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden along with the regular ornament. For a country with only ten stores (all in Stockholm), it is great news! See these two ornaments below for a comparison. As you can notice, it is a giant Christmas Tree and a Snowman that were added on the front.
To my understanding, these can still be found in stores, so you better hurry up before they are gone.

You Are Here Ornament – Sweden

I salute the release of Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Sweden as it completes the Nordic countries ornament list (with the exception of Iceland, which doesn’t have stores). Similar to the bigger mug, the ornament presents the Royal Palace (an official residence of the Swedish monarch) on the front. The Palace was built between 1697 and 1760 in Italian Baroque style on the remains of the “Tre Kronor” castle which was burned down in 1697.

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 Christmas – Luxembourg

You Are Here Christmas – Luxembourg is the country mug from the past Christmas season. Even though Luxembourg is one of the smallest European countries, and according to Starbucks, it only has three stores, it gets both regular and Holiday edition mugs. You can see them side by side below (see this post for better pictures and the review of the design of the regular mug).

YAH Schiphol is now available in stores

It was confirmed by a kind reader of this blog, that Starbucks You Are Here Schiphol is finally available for sale! What you see is a picture of this mug on the shelves of the Starbucks Plaza, located at Schiphol Airport. And you know what is the best part? You don’t have to pass the security check to get to the store. This discovery automatically moves this mug from “the unicorn” to “absolutely possible to get” and makes it a perfect addition to the YAH collection, especially considering it being phased out.… 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
