You Are Here – Morocco

Starbucks You Are Here – Morocco is another fresh release reveal that I would like to thank my reader for. She has confirmed to me that Morocco and Rabat are now available in stores.
This new mug has a bright colorful design showing multiple small boats along the sandy shore with the city skyline in the background. We see three pieces of the traditional Moroccan pottery, above that. There are three cities in Morocco that specialize in ceramic artistry: Meknes, Safi, and Fez.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Jordan

I believe Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Jordan will be somewhat hard to get. A small number of stores in this country do not make a collector’s life easier. Fingers crossed it stays on shelves for some time, so everyone can get it eventually.
Here the link, to a full-size sibling of this ornament where I mentioned that the front of the mug features Al-Khazneh – “The Treasury” (Arabic) – amazing ancient temple and dromedary (camel). … Read more

Been There – Vietnam

Something special has finally happened. We knew it was just a matter of time till Starbucks expands Been There Series beyond the Americas. Well, this time has come on Friday with the release of the first Asian BT mug and ornament. It is this Been There Vietnam mug that has been chosen for this role in particular. The box it comes with is of the same light blue color as we’re used to. As a nice touch, you can also buy it in a special gift box, which, along with the mug, includes a card and coffee filter (see the photo below).… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Italy

With Christmas just around the corner, I gave up on seeing Holiday Edition mugs from Italy. Boy, was I wrong! It has been revealed today, that Bel Paese gets both Christmas full-size mug and ornament.
As you can see, You Are Here Christmas – Italy has traditional (for the last two years) design with the red handle. Let me remind you, that there are not that many stores in this country. In fact, only two cities have Starbucks stores – Milan (most of those) and Turin (only one so far).… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Malta

Starbucks You Are Here Ornament – Malta has been finally released, after being in “rumored” state for almost six months. Not sure what took Starbucks so long, some production issues maybe. Anyway, it’s here and ready to join your collection.
As always, the mini mug kept all the elements of the design of the bigger mug. Here are some of Malta’s symbols to see:
– Bażilika Santwarju tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu (Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel) – which is probably Valletta’s most iconic landmark with its large dome dominating over city skyline.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland

Great news for UK collectors: Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Scotland is out! The regular Scotland Ornament is already not that easy one to get, and I bet it will be even worse for this Holiday Edition mini mug. My understanding, Scotland is considered a “remote country” compared to Central Europe.
When looking at the regular version these are the changes I’ve noticed in the new release:
– The highland cow got the Christmas Hat. Btw, highland cattle are a Scottish breed of cattle with long horns and long, wavy, woolly coats, which can be of multiple colors.… Read more
