4th Malaysia Barista Championship 2013, MBC 2013

Aha! I smell coffee everywhere when I entered Blackbox Map @ Publika… wootz! It’s the launch of 4th Malaysia Barista Championship 2013 by Racing Creatures Sdn Bhd and Barista Guild Asia with the support of the Malaysia Barista Committee. With exclusive partners: MAP, Publika, Tourism Victoria, Global Coffee Resources, Coffex Coffee, Dankoff Coffee, Monin, Nouva Simonelli, Concept Art and Farmhouse Milk.

The coffee culture in Malaysia is growing gradually. I think more people begin to learn and appreciate coffee and also willing to pay more for a cuppa.  Baristas are playing a crucial role in the culture and consumption of specialty coffee.
