The cutest little character to ever bless your cupboard. The Carita Cup is perfect for sipping anything small, from espresso to mezcal, sake, an herbal potion or whatever beverage your heart desires. It has been glazed inside with food-safe glaze. While the cups are all similar, each hand-formed face has a unique look and (if you will) personality. We suggest displaying these on an open shelf when not in use, to optimize the cute factor.
The Carita Cup loves the company of the Cara Mug.
The cups are made by an artisan family in a small village outside of Oaxaca City. They can trace their lineage of ceramicists back through countless generations, to ancient earthen kilns found at the nearby ruins of Monte Albán. Their home workshop is an impressive example if a family business, with multiple generations all working with clay, under one roof. Everything is fired in their backyard earth oven.
Made from unglazed, food safe clay.
Hand wash in warm water with dish soap. Do not put in the dishwasher.
