To hold it, his side cooperated with one of storeowners in the market in order to help people who want to start a coffee business, especially millennials.
He explained that the current coffee drinks were very in demand by the community from children to adults. It also became a way of life, especially for millennials ranging from rural to urban.
"Coffee business is growing and developing, either from the suburbs or famous restaurants, very promising," he explained.
Before starting a coffee business, every person needs to know things that are the key to successful coffee business. The problem often faced by coffee business beginners was the lack of knowledge about the quality of coffee and the ability to mix coffee according to consumer tastes.

"This can add insight for those who want to open a coffee business and work as a barista," he stated.
