Guidelines for article submission

Do you drink loads of good coffee? Are you drinking any coffee now? And does it make you write stories about it? We feel you! It happened to us, too.

If you have followed our journey and you love what we do at European Coffee Trip, perhaps you would like to be part of our team.

All you need is having an interest in the speciality coffee culture in Europe. The next thing you know, someone else is sipping on a cup of coffee while reading your article.

Sounds good? We would love to hear from you then. But before we get to know you and your ideas, here is a little introduction of our magazine and of the type of content we’re interested in.

What is European Coffee Trip magazine about?

Our magazine is a section of European Coffee Trip, a digital media that aims to discover, support and grow the European speciality coffee culture.

In the magazine, this is done by sharing stories of the driven and talented coffee lovers and professionals, discovering and promoting the speciality coffee businesses, featuring coffee-inspired concepts and events that relate to the speciality coffee market.

In the magazine, we are fostering the growth of the community, promoting it from within—ourselves and our contributors being, in the majority of cases, active members of the coffee communities across Europe.

Who can become a contributor?

We have met many crazy-talented people who all come to speciality coffee from various walks of life. Do you travel and search for good coffee everywhere you go? Are you deeply interested in a coffee-related topic that deserves some attention from the coffee community and you would like to address that?

If you are into:

– Writing
– Coffee
– People and their stories
– Travelling

… and more, we are guessing you have many a story to share.
