[T]here’s a lot to love about European Coffee Trip. The new website features gorgeous photography, interviews with coffee pros, and will soon be replete with guides to cafés in Europe. Most importantly, though, it offers a rare, English-language look at what’s going on in coffee in Central and Eastern Europe.

Want to know about the drinks prepared by the Czech Barista Championship’s finalists? They’ve got it. Want to meet a coffee consultant in Krakow? Well ECT is happy to introduce you to Martin Wojciack. Want to find a poster to decorate your AeroPress trophy room? ECT shows off plenty of great contenders, but I’d recommend this.

The site was launched by Ales Pospisil and Radek Nozicka, a pair of Czech engineers turned coffee enthusiasts. While its name points to a consumer audience, the content thus far skews toward professionals. It really should be a regular stop during your web browsing.

Ales and Radek, if nothing else, have done the coffee world the great service of getting the inimitable Gwilym Davies on camera to provide his pointers in a series of videos on proper espresso technique. It’s not comprehensive, but it should be required viewing for new baristas.
