Malaysia Barista Championship 2013

I only managed to watch the performance by the last contestant in Malaysia Barista Championship 2013 today.
And the last contestant, Evon from Top Brew Coffee Bar will be in the final tomorrow with the other 5 finalists. All the best to them!

The event is held in Black Box MAP @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas.
The final tomorrow will start at 10am.
Go cheers kuat-kuat for them!

Update from finale today!

Too bad I wasn't in time to watch the finale, but I did enjoy the latte art jam, interesting!

The Champion is Jason Loo of Red Bean Bag (right); 1st runner up is Bruce Khong of Departure Lounge (centre) and 2nd runner up is Mavin Gunaseelan.

Best espresso goes to Joseph Long of Plan b. Roasters while best signature drink goes to Evon Tan of Top Brew. If I'm not mistaken, Suren from Whisk won the best cappuccino. (correct me if I'm wrong)

Anyway, congratulations to all the baristas. It was a tough competition and you guys were great!


  1. I missed the 2 days...was more exhausted than I thought I was and stayed home to hibernate. Wanted to catch them in action...not an easy task to perform under the watchful eyes of the judges.

    1. Ah, it was a great event! I vow to watch everything next year~ :)
      yeah not easy to be in the competition.

  2. Yup,
    Best Espresso from Joseph Long
    Best Cappuccino from Suren
    Best Signature Drink from Evon.

    1. Thanks for the carification, Mr Chan.
      I bet it wasn't easy to be a judge. :P
