You Are Here Christmas – Sweden

Christmas mug in July? I’ll take it! Thanks to our follower, it was revealed that a very interesting release was missing from the Starbucks-Mugs.com collection. I hasten to fix this mistake and place You Are Here Christmas – Sweden mug where it belongs! The release of the Sweden Christmas ornament makes more sense now. For some reason, I didn’t question why there was no bigger version of it then.
Below, is a side-by-side comparison of the holiday edition mug with the regular mug.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Amsterdam

Since these cute mini cups always had a particular place in my heart, I was more than happy to learn about the release of the Starbucks You Are Here Amsterdam Ornament. What makes it even more special, is the fact that it comes out exactly one year after the very last YAH ornament that I’ve reviewed here. The new release has exactly the same design as the bigger mug, obviously, as it was always the case for You Are Here collection.… Read more

You Are Here – Innsbruck

After getting multiple messages about the release of Starbucks You Are Here Innsbruck mug, I have no choice but to add it to the site immediately. In fact, it’s not very often we get to see the new mug from the collection that is being discontinued since 2018. Innsbruck makes it the fifth (including the Christmas version) mug from Austria. On a side note, it is 474th YAH, if my calculations are correct.
The mug has a colorful, simple yet eye-catching design which will please the true fans of this series.… Read more

You Are Here – Rome

Here’s an interesting release from Italy! Starbucks You Are Here – Rome makes it the fourth mug from this country (after Italy, Milan and Turin).
Similar to other Italian mugs, this release was timed to the opening of the new Starbucks store, this time in Rome. After doing some small research, I can see that it was supposed to be opened back in 2020, then in 2021. Two years later, this finally has happened yesterday (April 7, 2022).… Read more

You Are Here – Montpellier

Starbucks You Are Here – Montpellier might be one of the last mugs from the YAH collection. Montpellier is a city in southern France close to the Mediterranean Sea. This location made it an important municipality of the Crown of Aragon in the 13th century. Montpellier is home to one of the oldest universities in the world – Université de Montpellier, which was established in 1220.
The front of the mug showcases La Fontaine des Trois Graces (The Three Graces Fountain) from La Place de la Comédie.… Read more

You Are Here – Hulun Buir

Starbucks You Are Here – Hulun Buir makes it the 81st YAH mug from Zhongguo (the Middle Kingdom in Mandarin, a.k.a China), and that’s not counting the Christmas Edition mugs.
Hulun Buir, located in Inner Mongolia (autonomous region of the PRC), is probably the least populous and the northernmost Chinese region that got the mug. This region is governed as a prefecture-level city and that makes it one of the biggest cities in the world by area (though very uncrowded).… Read more

You Are Here – Euskadi

Here’s an interesting release for a country within a country. Officially, it is the Basque Autonomous Community, but probably a more common name is “The Basque Country”. Starbucks chose to use the local (Basque) name for the mug, hence the title is You Are Here Euskadi.
Speaking of the language, it is very important to note, that the Basque language (Euskera) is not related to Romance languages (Latin) like Spanish or French, and is one of the oldest languages that are being spoken today.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas 2020 Glass Mugs

For some reason, I was hesitant to add this trio of Holiday mugs from the 2020 Christmas season to the site but decided that it actually makes sense to include them in the collection. In fact, there was no fair reason to not compare them to previous releases:
– they do belong to the “You Are Here Collection” and the boxes they come in look like other Christmas YAH boxes (see the pics below)
– their design is a revision of the respective city Christmas mugs from the previous years (see the comparison for Paris, London, and Amsterdam)
– there were no other Holiday mugs released for these cities at the same time
– these are 14oz mugs, the same size as other YAHs (see the photo of the bottom of the mug)
It’s worth noting, however, that even though they can be stacked with other YAHs, they are shorter (again see a comparison picture below).… Read more

You Are Here Christmas Glass – Paris

So different, yet, the resemblance is there. You Are Here Christmas Glass – Paris mug shows a revised design of the YAH Christmas Paris v2 released back in 2017. It is amazing how fast time flies!
For your convenience here’s the side-by-side comparison of these two below. The changes are subtle: the snowman has moved closer to the title of the mug, certain landmarks became smaller, including the Eiffel Tower.

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow

You Are Here Ornament – Krakow is the second in a row city release from the YAH ornament series. Starbucks has been only releasing country ornaments recently, so it is nice to see that there is more than that. There are certainly many countries that we, collectors, would like Starbucks to come up with the ornaments for, but it won’t hurt if cities are added to the schedule too!
When reviewing the full-sized mug, I didn’t mention the dragon on the right of the front of the mug, so I would like to give it attention now.… Read more
