This is a fully functional (~8oz) coffee cup. See the Post-Printing section for recommendations on how to heat treat.
Make sure you use a filament that is made from FDA food safe materials (such as ProtoParadigm $5 Filament).
The vertical lines visible in the pictures slightly make it look like the mug has flat sides, however, that is actually the infill. The cup is smooth all the way around.

The amount of infill is up to you. More infill will result in a heaver cup. You could probably get away without using supports -- the only reason I printed with them is to make sure the arcing spots in the handle turned out.
In order for this cup to be safe to drink out of you'll need to use a filament made from FDA approved material(s) -- such as ProtoParadigm $5 Filament.
You will also need to heat treat it by boiling or baking it. The cup included in the pictures section was heated in a 230F oven for 12 minutes (per ProtoParadigm recommendation). There are several resources online that discuss how to "anneal" PLA to improve it's Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT).
Some warping might occur when heat treating. Based on experience, baking it resulted in less (barely noticeable) warp than boiling.
