You Are Here – Trondheim

Starbucks You Are Here – Trondheim is a mug for the third most populous municipality in Norway located on the south shore of Trondheim Fjord. It is a pretty old city, founded in 997 as a trading post under the name of Kaupangen, later renamed Nidaros. The city served as the capital of Norway during the Viking Age until 1217.
The design of the mug is very simple, showcasing the views of the city with old buildings located right on the water.… Read more

You Are Here – Cape Town

Even though the release of Starbucks You Are Here – Cape Town has been delayed for two years, it is still nice to see it finally coming out. Better late than never, they say. This release is accompanying the opening of the first Starbucks store in this South African city. It was announced back in 2018, but for some reason did not happen. The store will be open to the public this Thursday, but it seems that some people were able to get this mug earlier, probably at the party for the media that was held today.… Read more

Been There Christmas – Pike Place 2

This could easily be the most exciting Starbucks release of the 2020 Holiday Season. Been There Christmas – Pike Place v2 introduces a completely unique design, never seen before.

I like this new design a lot! Let me know in the comments about your thoughts on this mug.… Read more

Been There – Santa Cruz de la Sierra

Starbucks Been There – Santa Cruz de la Sierra is the only city mug from Bolivia, with no country mug released so far. This city is the largest in Bolivia being its principal industrial center. It first founded in 1561 by Spanish explorer Ñuflo de Chavez. Interestingly enough, the location of the city has been moved several times since then (125 miles in total to the west).
Designers used a green palette for the design of the mug, which reflects the colors of the flag of the city – two green stripes divided by a white stripe.… Read more

Been There – Guanajuato

I believe that Starbucks Been There – Guanajuato is a city mug, based on its design, which is mostly featuring the city’s landmarks.
Here are they:
– Alhóndiga de Granaditas was originally built as grain storage but later played a major role in the first battle of the Mexican War of Independence between insurgents and royalist troops on September 28, 1810.
– The Guanajuato tunnels are a series of wide channels that extended under the city and help divert traffic away from the city center.… Read more

Starbucks Been There – Guadalajara is a mug for the second-largest metropolitan area in Mexico. The city is an important center of business, finance, technology, science, culture, and education in the country.
Guadalajara is considered to be the home of Mariachi which is a well-known genre of Regional Mexican music. The usual mariachi group consists of as many as eight violins, two trumpets and at least one guitar, including a high-pitched vihuela and an acoustic bass guitar, called a guitarrón. You can see four Mariachi men on the front of the mug.… Read more
