Malaysia Barista Champion 2008 – Cheryl Lee

For the first time, a Malaysia Barista Championship (MBC) was held on the 5th of April. Organised by Coffex, it was quite a rush affairs. The Asia Barista Championship (also for the first time) was to be held on 22nd & 23rd April in Singapore. They were trying to find the most competent Barista to represent Malaysia at the ABC.

Contestant for the MBC were represented by baristas from Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Coffee Connection, Dome, Glitter’s Cafe, Bakerzin and Hilton Hotel.

And the winner goes to Ms. Cheryl Lee from Coffee Connection.

Here are the photos of Cheryl at the Asia Barista Championship (ABC) in Singapore.

Judges watching over the contestant like a hawk.

Finished and relieve.

Congratulation Cheryl for making us proud. Getting 5th place on her maiden attempt and competing against veterans like Carl Sara and Scottie Callaghan is truly a great effort.
