This is part of the promotion of Indonesian coffee which is unique and rich in taste. He has also said that coffee is continuously served until the end of activity on 13 July 2022.

One of the famous coffee types abroad is Flores Coffee with Arabica coffee type. The owner of Florasta Barista Kopi Tuk, Agustinus Suban Puka explained that the character of the taste of Flores Coffee makes the coffee one of Indonesia's mainstay coffee products in foreign countries.  Augustine, who sells coffee every day by riding a motorcycle, said that foreign tourists really  like Flores' typical coffee. They always appreciate the strength of Flores Coffee's taste after drinking the blended coffee.

Moreover, Agustinus further hopes that the G20 event in Labuan Bajo can further promote the enjoyment of the coffee to delegates from abroad.
