New York's Most Famous Coffee Cup Goes To Battle Posted on 06 Apr 14:06
If you ask New Yorkers about their favorite coffee cup, most of them will mention the Greek one, aka the Anthora, a staple in the NYC coffee scene for several decades. Debuting in the 60's, production of the iconic cup was stopped in 2006 due to the rise of Starbucks and a resulting decrease in demand. Production would resume in 2015, but during those nine years, imitation cups spawning those blue, white and gold colors with Greek symbolism popped up everywhere. Despite the countless knock-offs however, none would perfectly replicate that original design (copyrights and trademarks can be a great thing). Check out this article by The Outline detailing the rise, fall, and eventual revival of one of New York City's most beloved products - the Anthora coffee cup.
