Japanese coffee roasters are scheduled to visit the Tarrazú area next week to learn about the production there.
The Asocafé Tarrazú said Monday that Japan has a growing coffee market even though the country is known for drinking tea.
Some 20 persons who are described as Japanese microroasters will arrive to sample local coffee.
They will visit Santa María de Dota Monday where local coffee growers will put the visitors to work for their first time in picking the beans. Later they will travel to other coffee growing areas nearby.
