Despite our ability to make gourmet coffee at home, we all stop at local coffee shops to pick up a cup of coffee while on the run. Recently, Krups has honored ten coffee shops across America with the “Cup O’ Joe” Award. The basis of selection was consumer-based response gathered through a variety of mediums – email, fans and followers on social media sites and face-to-face discussions. The only stipulation is that no major retailers were able to take the award. So whether you live in one of these cities or plan to visit one soon, you may want to check out Krup’s “Cup O’ Joe” winners. They are: Manhattan: MUDTruck
Brooklyn: Gimme! Coffee
