  • the story

Light Coffee, Two Sugars

The classic New York coffee cup is immortalized in infinitely reusable ceramic with this distinctive creation. Once a staple of every corner deli, the easily recognized blue and white Greek motif is quickly disappearing from city streets. The durable design proves to be much longer lasting than the old-fashioned paper version, while still maintaining a distinctly city feel. This witty remake of an unforgettable original is a must-have for every city-living coffee drinker. Made in Thailand.

The original paper cup, the Anthora, was designed by Leslie Buck in the late 1960s. It shot to popularity in daily use and in pop culture and has become one of the symbols associated with New York City. Mr. Buck passed away on April 26, 2010. He was 87 years old. You can read his life story in the New York Times.

          This is one of my favorite Christmas gifts from my husband! I love it's small size and the matte finish. It doesn't match our other mugs, so every time I get it out, I appreciate it as a special "one of a kind" gift. I'm planning on buying this gift for my dad for his birthday.

            This is a great cup! The thickness of the ceramic makes it nice to hold coffee or tea and keep your hand warm, but not get burned. This is my new favorite cup!!

                    I have been waiting and waiting to buy these cups – one for me and one for a friend who used to live in NYC. Finally ordered them. Was disappointed. They're not that cute. And there is a weird roughness to the outside. They're not smooth. Would not recommend.

                    Comments about CERAMIC GREEK COFFEE CUP:

                    This was a gift for a dear old friend of the family whose wants and needs are few, and is hard to buy for. This cup, for our family, is kind of part of an inside family joke, so it was the perfect gift for our friend. The only real drawbacks, and they aren't deal breakers in my opinion, are the smallish size and it does get rather warm when you pour hot coffee into it, so have something handy until your beverage cools off a bit. If you are buying this for somebody who likes to drink a lot of coffee at once, this might not be for them. However, it's uniqueness goes a long way, so that may not be an issue. At the worst you have a really cute piece of kitchen decor.
