You Are Here – Hoi An

Starbucks You Are Here Hoi An mug came out in 2022, almost two years after the release of the country mug from the Been There series!

Nestled along the central coast of Vietnam, Hoi An is a captivating town that effortlessly combines the allure of ancient history with a vibrant modern-day spirit.… Read more

You Are Here – Cambridge

Starbucks You Are Here Cambridge is an interesting release in a sense that a mug from this series, with exactly the same name, was already released in the past. Make no mistake, it’s not the new version of the existing mug, this is the brand new release for a different city with the same name. Therefore we have a mug for Cambridge, US and a mug for Cambridge, UK.

Cambridge, located in Cambridgeshire, England, is a city steeped in captivating history.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament – Vienna

You Are Here Ornament Vienna is a complete copy of the bigger mug that I reviewed some time ago. Interestingly enough, while that release was the second edition of the full-sized mug for this city, there was no ornament for the first version. I really wish there were two variants of the ornament as well, however it doesn’t seem to be happening.
The color of the string is dark red or maybe the shade of purple.

You Are Here – Belgrade (Београд)

Starbucks You Are Here Belgrade mug is the first from this series to use non-Latin letters for the title. We’ve seen local variants of the names before, but never Cyrillic. I think the reason Starbucks decided to use that option is that in Serbia, both the Latin and Cyrillic alphabets are officially recognized and widely used. This unique characteristic reflects the country’s historical and cultural diversity. The Latin alphabet, also known as the “Latinica” (латиница), is predominantly used in everyday life, including signage, official documents, and digital communication.… Read more

You Are Here – Orléans

In an attempt to review all of the YAH releases by the end of this year, let me present Starbucks You Are Here Orléans mug to you. Orléans is a city in north-central France, not far from Paris. It was an important trade port for ages, thanks to its location on the river Loire, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. You can see the waters of Loire across the mug (in the lower part).
Another interesting fact is that Orleans was the capital of the Kingdom of France during the Merovingian period and played an important role in the Hundred Years’ War, specifically in the siege of Orleans.… Read more
