Been There – Jamaica

Starbucks Been There – Jamaica introduces the switch from Icon to Been There series for “the land of wood and water.” As per the company’s Facebook page, this mug is available for purchase in all stores right now. As soon as we get better pics, we will go over the details of the design. So far, it seems they’ve added the famous motto of the island – “no problem”. I guess it is supposed to symbolize the philosophy of life or a part of Jamaican culture, which is a big topic of its own.… 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 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).

You Are Here – Luxembourg

Starbucks You Are Here – Luxembourg is the first YAH mug for this country. Something tells me it will be the only one since this collection is being phased out. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is one of the smallest countries in Europe but is also one of the richest countries in the world as per GDP per capita and purchasing power.
The design of the mug is very laconic with few elements (apart from the city street with the old buildings):
– The Adolphe Bridge is a double-decked arch bridge in Luxembourg City.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey

A brand new release has just popped up online. This is You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey which is the second Holiday mini mug from this country. The first one is the Istanbul ornament of course. And just as a reminder, it remains the only city Christmas ornament outside of the US!
As you can see from the pictures below, apart from the gold color, there are very few Christmas symbols on the new mug: only the hat and the gift box.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway

Just recently I’ve mentioned the release of the new mini mug from this Nordic country and we have its Holiday edition sibling Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway hitting the shelves. For easier comparison, I’ve placed this new ornament next to the regular one and there is one interesting detail that I would like to point out. Apart from Holiday symbols added to the design, the shape of the Christmas trees is different on both the front and the back of the mug.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Ireland

Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Ireland is the latest addition to the Holiday mugs family. As you can see from the pictures below, the differences with the regular mug are subtle: Holiday hats and gift boxes. I would also like to point at Santa Claus’s sleigh at the roof of the house (see the back of the mug). Speaking out of my head, I don’t recall this nice little detail from any other Christmas mugs.
