The bazaar will present ancient culinary, silhouette art, the history of stamps, coffee communities, Indonesian fabric communities, and others.

"Coffee is an integral part of Jakarta since its old days," she said in Jakarta, Saturday, August 25.

Linda said Jakarta, formerly known as Batavia, is one of the storage places for the coffee commodity. The street's name where the festival will be held is also closely related to the history of the archipelago coffee.
