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.

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!!

Very durable cup but colors seemed faded.

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!

Cute, but too hot with coffee!

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!

Cute!

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!

This cup is so cute!

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