Unique Neighborhood Coffee Shops

Best coffee shops across the country


Whether dark roast, light roast, with milk, or black, no matter how you take your morning cup, you are part of a worldwide community of java drinkers that have made coffee one of the world’s top-traded agricultural commodities.

For as many coffee drinkers as there are in the country, it seems there are just as many coffee shops, from international chains to the coffee house on the corner. To honor the best neighborhood shops in the country, coffee appliance maker Krups created its Best Brew Awards in 2011. Facebook users nominated and voted on cafés in major metropolitan areas to choose the winners.

"Krups is about coffee and beverages, and we want to support the industry and support the local coffee shops that are doing such a great job within the industry," Michele Lupton, Krups’ director of marketing communication, told CNBC.com.

This year, voters chose these shops to receive the Best Brew Award. Check out the winners!
