The Coffee Surfers Tour of Google Maps

Coffee company illy have created a beautiful promotional website in which photographer Gabriele Galimberti shares his experiences and photos as he tours the world and meets fellow coffee lovers.

The whole website is worth a visit at it features some great scrolling effects as well as Gabriele's photographs and interviews. The Tour Map is also worth checking out, especially for its stunning use of the Styled Map feature in the Google Maps API.

When you load the map be sure to mouse-over the individual map markers! When you roll over the markers the whole color scheme of the map style changes. Each marker even has its own uniquely colored map tiles.
