The Malaysia Latte Art Championship (MLAC) is a newly introduced national competition that will witness local baristas battle to be crowned the first ever MLAC Champion. The championship has never been organized before, and 2015 was the first year that a national competition of this scale has organized.

The aim of this competition is to produce baristas that are technically skilled in both the craft of latte art as well as their technical skills. Competitors will need to present their art according to a planned routine, where competitors will be judged on consistency and visual aspects.

Eng Boon Hong of Just Want Café was crowned the first ever MLAC Champion and represented Malaysia for the first time in the World Latte Art Championship (WLAC) that was held in Gothenburg, Sweden in June 2015.

The MLAC returns and we are about to crown the new champion for 2016, which will see him/her represent Malaysia in WLAC that will be held in Shanghai, China this coming March.

MLAC 2016 will be held in conjunction with Cafe Malaysia coming 14th - 16th January 2016, located in MATRADE Exhibition & Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur.
