"We don’t limit the type of coffees to be given out," he said. What is important, Jefri said, is they can invite the people of Solo to celebrate the International Coffee Day. "As well as introducing the tradition of drinking coffee," he added.

A similar event was also held at the same location. At that time, as many as 3,000 cups of free coffee were given to the visitors.

According to Jefri, the habit of Solo society hanging out at the coffee shops just broke out two years ago. Today, many coffee shops in Solo have attracted some loyal customers.

"Most of the customers are youths, such as students," Jefri said. He hopes the International Coffee Day event can further introduce coffee to all levels of society.
