The Latest Starbucks Mugs

You Are Here Ornament – Germany

There was a confusing delay in releasing more ornaments from Europe, but today, we finally see the Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Germany making its appearance in stores. Apparently, the releases will happen in batches, so we can expect other minis coming out soon.

With this new releases, Starbucks is actually bringing more questions, rather than fixing things.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Romania

We’ve already seen Slovakia and here’s another one: You Are Here Ornament – Romania. Since this is a complete copy of the regular mug, please check this post for a full review. … Read more
