One of the most popular, if not the best cafes around the world, Starbucks Philippines is an empire of tasty selections of coffee, and desserts that everyone just can’t get enough of. When you talk about Starbucks, among the many things that come to mind (aside from coffee and frappe) is their set of collectibles including planners, notebooks, small bags, and most importantly their own line of mugs and tumblers. Originally designed for customers who want to “take away” their drink, Starbucks tumblers and mugs have become more than just another way to enjoy your beverages.
Our favorite coffee chain started out in 1971 in Seattle Washington and was founded by three students at the University of San Francisco - Jerry Baldwin, Zev Siegl, and Gordon Bowker. The name “Starbucks” was coined after a brain storming session between the three founders. Owning an advertising agency, Bowker suggested that the name should begin with “St-” as it was an impressionable syllable. During this time, somebody pulled out a map of of the Cascade Range, and spotted a mining town called “Starbo”. Quickly, Bowker thought of the Moby Dick character “Starbuck”, thus became the name of our favorite coffee shop.
While Starbucks is popular for their coffee and frappes, the first Starbucks exclusively sold roasted coffee beans without a single drop of coffee to sell. However, they do have free samples that they give out to encourage customers to purchase their coffee beans. It wasn’t until the 80s that they first made their own coffee and sold it to customers. From there the brand grew immensely, opening several branches around every state in the US. In 1996, the brand’s first international store opened in Japan, and had spread all over the world like wildfire. Today, Starbucks is seen as an all-time favorite because of their dynamic menus of caffeinated and decaffeinated beverages, and desserts with a relaxing, warm atmosphere.
Aside from the food and drinks that you can get from Starbucks, the chain also boasts its extensive collection of tumblers and mugs that you can purchase online or from the store. For years, Starbucks have been providing mugs and tumblers with different designs per series, and have been considered collectibles for many coffee enthusiasts. While there are no official classification, Starbucks mugs and tumblers can be divided into three categories: (1) the city mug series, (2) the architect series, (3) and the global series.
City Mug Series
This Starbucks series was available from 1994 to 2007, and one of the first and oldest in the Starbucks collection. It is called “city mug” because each mug or tumblr vary in design that best represented their respective branch or city from where it is bought.
The Starbucks architect series was first launched in 2007, and like the city mug series, it’s design has a visual representation or a landmark of the city from where it is bought. The architect series was first distributed in the United States but later became known internationally and thus the Global series was born.
The Global series, like the architect features famous landmarks of the country where it is distributed. Due to Starbucks’ constant expansion across many countries, the Global series is a timely concept, making starbucks more popular across the globe.
Aside from that, Starbucks also has non-city mugs and tumblers which represent each season, holiday, or even Starbucks anniversaries. You can find the best starbucks mugs and tumblers here.
What makes your starbucks tumbler and mugs awesome is that you can drink your coffee on the go, anywhere and everywhere. It is made with top quality plastic and glass, and even has other features that are not present on normal coffee mugs and tumblers. Starbucks tumblers have a secure lid as well as a non-slip bottom surface which keep your coffee secured on top of your table. If you are looking for a Starbucks mug or tumbler online, here are are some tips on how to choose the perfect one:
- Determine how large your cup should be. Like their cups at the shop, Starbucks mugs have tall, grande, and venti, so determine which one would you need for your daily dose of coffee or other beverages.
- If you are not much of a coffee drinker but are a big fan of starbucks cold beverages and decaffeinated drinks, then you should consider a different type of tumbler. Instead of having the usual lid you can sip in, you get a straw and a cup which is a hard plastic version of the Starbucks plastic cup.
- The best thing about Starbucks mugs is that you can choose from their wide selection of styles and designs that would fit your personality and preferences.
