I started out collecting coffee mugs which has morphed over time into collecting Starbucks City Mugs. I very rarely drink Starbucks coffee, but I love their mugs. In 2007 I met up in Paris with some friends from the Netherlands whom I hadn’t seen in years. Each morning they wanted to go to Starbucks for coffee and I didn’t because, well, I was in Paris and wanted to go to a café or anyplace but a Starbucks (or McDonalds). So the last day we were in Paris, my friends turned up with a present for me – a Paris Starbucks mug. I’ve been collecting them ever since.
