Ceramic Greek Coffee Cup

The classic New York takeout cup is immortalized in reusable ceramic.

$12.00

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 China.

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.

What a great coffee cup. Spotted it on [@] in their "Get the Look" feature for Scorcese's film "Taxi Driver" and I knew I had to have it. Probably the most iconic coffee cup ever (take that, Seattle [...] hipsters!) My only real complaints are that a) without a handle (and I wouldn't have wanted them to add one, because it would have ruined the aesthetic) it's super hot when there's liquid in it. The other thing, it's a bit on the small side, which just means I drink four cups of coffee in the morning instead of two.[...], reasonable price, great product!

Got this is as Christmas gift for my boyfriend who has always dreamed of a non-disposable Greek NYC take away cup. Little did he know that such a thing exists and that I saw it on one of my favorite sites, Uncommon Goods.

It's made of pretty durable ceramic and is a bit smaller than I expected but my boyfriend said it was absolutely true to scale of the model take away cup.

Only problem is that there's no handle and the ceramic isn't thick enough to handle while the cup is filled with boiling water for tea or fresh coffee. A kitchen stash of Starbucks cup sleeves solves the problem of heat but it also covers up the fantastic design of the cup. =( I reluctantly have to detract points for this. It's thisclose to being a deal breaker but I still love it!

Comments about UncommonGoods Ceramic Greek Coffee Cup:

I bought one of these for myself and two for my parents, since I knew they would love them! They are super cute, but unfortunately they are not great for their intended use, coffee, unless you fill it up only halfway or something. The cup gets really hot, and since there's obviously no handle, it's hard to hold. But it's great for water or beer. Overall very cute and nostalgic!

Comments about UncommonGoods Ceramic Greek Coffee Cup:

I bought this to use as a makeup brush holder. As an actual cup for coffee it's smaller than average, and no handle probably means burned fingers. The colors are muted, which I like but that might deter others. Looks great next to my vintage palmistry hand for my jewelry!

    I can't drink a whole cup of coffee, so choosing the 6 ounce button on the Kuerig is perfect for this cup.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Ceramic Greek Coffee Cup:

      My colleague is a native of NYC and when I saw this cup, I knew he'd not only like it, he'd love it.
      The look on his face was all the confirmation I needed, he fell in love with it.
      It made him think of home.
      This gift was small in price, but big on heartfelt appreciation.
      Uncommon Goods you're so awesome.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Excellent, received in record speed.
