Will never use it. Bought it for iconic souvenir reasons (New York City). I knew it is basically unusable (no handle, heavy ceramic, slip through fingers/break).
I use this mug for both hot and iced coffee, and although there are some reviews that say it gets too hot to hold, I find it really isn't that warm, and I can carry in by the space I would leave room for cream. Design is cute, and cup seems sturdy.
Agree with another review that these cups are not bright royal blue like in the photo. Truthfully, they look a bit washed out. Still very cool, but just a heads up on that. They also get *very* hot--we have to let our beverages cool for about 10 minutes before handling the cup. Good conversation piece but we probably won't use them as much as I'd hoped. Will stick with using our mugs that have handles.
Great gift or a great item just to have around the house or office.
Love my little cup!!!!
I brought this for dad because when I was younger everyday he had to get coffee and it always came in one of the paper Greek cups. It sparked alot of memory's for him and took him down memory lane. It brought me to tears that cup could do that.(Old age health and memory problems) I LOVE IT!!

I was very excited to get this product! Before I order anything I always love to read the reviews and how other families enjoyed the product. This one has received rave reviews so I bought it no questions asked. Once I got the product the first thing I noticed when I got it out of the box the cup is very durable and well crafted. Then I noticed the blue coloring seemed faded compared to what it was shown online and in others' pictures. I've never seen the actual cup from New York in person so I have nothing to compare it to but from my perspective the coloring of blue was not the royal blue I was expecting. I still LOVE the product and so does my father-in-law, I would buy it again any day of the week!

I'd keep it for myself!
I love the memories evoked by this design. I hope it does not disappear in a flurry of Starbucks!
This cup came at a great price. Better than other online stores or gift shops. So I bought 2!
