The iconic "We Are Happy To Serve You" paper coffee cup was introduced in 1963 by Leslie Buck. More than 180 million of the distinctive blue-and-white Grecian-style cups are used in New York City every year. The environmentally minded design group, Exceptionlab, in conjunction with the SOLO Cup Operating Corp., converted the design from disposable to permanent. This ceramic New York Coffee Cup was designed by Graham Hill. Dishwasher safe. Microwave safe.
