Costa Rican coffees will be promoted in Japan next month during an annual fair organized by the Costa Rican Fine Coffees Association, according to a statement from the National Coffee Institute (ICAFE).

Costa Rican representatives from the institute and coffee producers will present their products at the fair, scheduled to take place Aug. 7-9 in Tokyo.

Gourmet Costa Rican coffee will be introduced to Japanese importers with the goal of increasing exports to the Asian country.

Visitors will be able to sample coffee from the country’s seven coffee-producing zones and learn about the production process.
