Gear Patrol recently published a great look at the disposable coffee cup culture in New York City.

By and large, New York City is not the place where people “stay” for coffee. They drink it in transit, in subway cars and yellow cabs; and even when stationed at their office desks, New Yorkers are partial to the disposable cup. […] Obtained from blue-collar breakfast trucks and high-minded cafes alike, these cups, each emblazoned with its own place of origin, together represent the democracy of a place with too many people and too little time.

Check out the full article for more on each cup and design.
