“…If you’ve ever been to an NYC diner you’ve most likely had Vassilaros and Sons Coffee, the family run company that’s been supplying most of them for years. Immigrant-grown and women-owned, they’ve been in the coffee game since 1919, filling those iconic little blue Greek coffee cups (called the Anthora) so closely associated with New York. The company recently expanded from strictly wholesale to direct to the consumer, so you can now enjoy a perfect cup of NYC diner coffee at home.  Order yours here – and while you’re at it, you might as well get your own anthora cup!
