Over nearly half a century, New York made the coffee-to-go cup with the customer-friendly "We Are Happy To Serve You" part of its culture. Once a staple of every corner deli, the easily recognized blue and white Greek motif is quickly disappearing from city streets, yet with countless cameos in New York City–set movies and television shows, including Law & Order, Men in Black, and NYPD Blue, the cup has become inextricably linked with certain qualities, the impatient, innovational, and caffeine-driven “authenticity” of New York City attitude.
The original NY Coffee Cup design is both genuinely unique and almost timeless, so it's no wonder someone turned the enduring icon from disposable to permanent, from paper to infinitely-reusable ceramic, and it's not surprising that it's been immortalized at New York's Museum of Modern Art. The durable design proves to be much longer lasting than the old-fashioned paper version, while still maintaining a distinctly city feel. Crafted in durable lead-free earthenware, the 8-ounce cups are microwave and dishwasher safe. Witty remake of an unforgettable original, offered in a gift-friendly Set of 2.
