The festival will also feature a number of workshops including a Barista Workshop, a Roasting Workshop, Coffee Talk, Indonesian Coffee tasting program, trips to Coffee plantations, and various entertainment activities.

Inviting coffee enthusiast and coffee industry stakeholders, the festival introduces and promotoes the wide variety of Indonesian coffee and each of their exceptional qualities which make Indonesian Coffee one of the best commodities in the world. In 2012, Indonesian Coffee exports reached a total value of USD 1.2 billion. Among some of Indonesia's favorite brands are Toraja Coffee, Bajawa (Flores) Coffee, Bali Coffee, Aceh Coffee and a lot more.

Each region in Indonesia has also its own distinct style of serving "Kopi Tubruk" or the freshly brewed coffee, that it has become a particular local lifestyle. The unique ways and different styles in processing and serving coffee will present an interesting experience for coffee enthusiasts. An example of one the most unique traditions in serving coffee is by adding condensed milk, a raw egg, and even hot charcoal in the coffee, which in some parts of Java is known as "Kopi Joss".

The Indonesian Coffee Festival 2013 is a collaborative work of The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy, The Ministry of Agriculture, the Indonesian Special Coffee Association (AKSI), The Association of Coffee Exporters (GAEKI), and the Association of Coffee Exporters and Industry (AEKI).
