If you are a lover of the famous Starbucks coffee brand, the theme mugs that Starbucks launches at every event are certainly not strange to you. The You are here mug set launched by Starbucks has also made a splash with its unique designs of famous places around the world. Although these cups are sold at a low price, thanks to their interesting and beautiful appearance, they still become attractive to consumers who love this coffee brand. It’s been a long time since these mugs were released and they’ve barely even appeared on the market, so the question is, did Starbucks discontinue You are mugs?
Did Starbucks discontinue You are here mugs?
‘You are here’ mugs are adorned with images of unique symbols of many countries around the world such as Belgium, Denmark, Scotland, etc. In the past, you could go directly to Starbucks stores to get a cup with the image of the country you wanted. At present, however, this is hardly possible. The reason is that the You are here cup set has been stopped by Starbucks and put on the market since 2018. This may cause regret for those who have not been able to collect the entire set of cups, but they can only be purchased by buying from others instead of buying from Starbucks.
After the You are here series of mugs were discontinued, Starbucks immediately replaced them with Been There, which had a similar theme to the previous You are here, and they were also very well received by Starbucks fans.
