to MBC 2020

A big congratulations to YBR’s very own Sean Sue who qualified for the finals of the Malaysian Barista Championship (MBC) 2020 on 12 January! This was Sean’s first time competing at the MBC, and he spent several months in rigorous training with competition champions Jason Loo and Shaun Liew. Each session involved pulling and perfecting numerous cups of coffee.

Getting to the finals was a great achievement for Sean, who powered through the competition with his characteristic quiet calm and focus. “It was quite scary,” he admits, “but I had a lot of help and support from Jason and all my colleagues at YBR. It was such a great experience—and it’s inspired me to keep learning and bettering my skills. I’ll be back for the next competition!”
