Sabah International Coffee Festival was inaugurated in 2018, and is organized annually to showcase the rich natural offerings, coupled with Sabah’s rich culture comprising diverse indigenous customs, traditions and rituals. Tourists from both domestic and international sources are welcome to visit and partake in the celebrations, to enjoy Sabah’s food and beverage hospitalities, visit places of attractions, immerse in the culture, and bring home memories with products.
Borneo Coffee Festival offered a wide range of coffee-related products and services. It has consistently attracted nearly 20,000 visitors, over the weekend.
Many exhibitors were also happy with the number of crowd visiting their booths…some even had to replenish their products two to three times per day to cater to the crowds’ demand.
