Caffeine lovers, unite: Krups, maker of coffee and espresso machines, kicked off its Krups Best Brew Awards 2012, a campaign seeking the best coffee shops across the country. Nominees in the Boston market are Polcari's, Thinking Cup, and Wired Puppy, all in Boston, Barismo in Arlington (a winner in last year's inaugural contest), and 1369 Coffee House in Cambridge.

Krups is taking votes for the awards through Feb. 24, with winners announced Feb. 27. Participants can vote for one of five local shops in each participating city, a list comprised of last year's winners and overall top picks. They can also write in their favorite shop if it's not on the list of nominees. Cities in the contest are Boston, New York, LA, Miami, Chicago, Philly, Dallas, San Francisco, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. To vote, visit the Krups Facebook page, www.facebook.com/krupsusa.

The contest is expanding this year to find the best baristas throughout the country in those cities who are interested in winning a seat on the Krups Coffee Council. Entrants must submit a video showing their talents and complete a questionnaire, which can be found on the Facebook page as well. Krups uses the coffee council members throughout the year for regional events and promotions, media opportunities, new product demos and more.

Pour yourself a cup of joe, sit down and vote. It is an election year, after all.
