Recently, I was invited to the 90th Anniversary Celebration Of La Marzocco, the artisan manufacturer of the finest handmade espresso machine and in conjunction with the official launch of their La Marzocco showroom in Malaysia.
La Marzocco, artisan manufacturer leading the industry in espresso machine innovation and design, celebrated its 90 years of heritage and technology with friends, partners and the specialty coffee community at the newly open showroom in Malaysia at Taman Perindustrian Bandar Kinrara Puchong, via its Malaysia distributor Classic Coffee & Beverage Sdn Bhd (CCB).

A total of 180 participants attended the event including café owners, barista, coffee lovers & dealers. Among them are the two distinguished guests from La Marzocco itself ~ Andrea Curtarelli, La Marzocco Export Area Manager and Tommaso Natale, Marketing Manager of La Marzocco Home. From CCB side, Managing Director Jacques Cosset and Assistant General Manager Ms Chuah also joined in the opening ceremony and celebration for the brand’s 90th Years birthday.
To add on to the excitement, a latte art throwdown themed “The Hero We Need” was organized whereby 24 heroes joined the battle. Each hero was to compete with his/her opponent to create the most beautiful latte art in 90 seconds.
