Genting Coffee Festival – Shows your talent
Malaysian coffee aficionados will be able to participate in a variety of activities spanning the entire supply chain of the humble bean which is worth RM500 each session.
These include coffee appreciation sessions, where highly qualified experts such as Daniel Liew, Academic Director and Co-founder of Barista Guild Asia will be on hand to guide guests through a Bean to Cup story.
Guests can also challenge their taste buds at these sessions, attempting to guess coffee – whether local, pure soluble, stale, commercial or specialty – just from the taste.
“We are extremely proud to host the very first Genting Coffee Festival which is the first of its kind at the resort with our partners, NESCAFÉ and the Barista Guild Asia. Throughout the three days, various workshops and contests will be conducted which includes ‘bonding’, ‘brewing’ and ‘tasting’
This is the first of its kind free workshop where visitors will learn everything about coffee. We hope that visitors will have a memorable time here as they spend their time learning to craft your own latte, smell the beans at cupping as well as sensory workshops.” – Said Clarence Tan, Vice President of Loyalty and Acquisition at Resorts World Genting
Specialist classes will also be available
Sensory Cupping class, latte art class, brewing class, Espresso workshop and many more are the few classes available.
During the Espresso workshop, Daniel Liew shared that there are two layers to the espresso: the crema and the liquid. The former contains the aroma whilst the latter contains the flavor and both layers have to be stirred and consumed within 30 seconds before drinking.
Speaking on behalf of Nestle Products Sdn Bhd, Mr. Ehsan Isa, Senior Brand Manager said,
“NESCAFÉ is collaborating with Resorts World Genting to celebrate coffee culture in Malaysia through the Genting Coffee Festival. We are inviting visitors of Resorts World Genting to engage in world of coffee through a series of barista-hosted appreciation sessions, coffee-related contests and barista competition throughout the three days.

Nestlé as food & beverage solutions partner of the resort will continue to support the opportunities and growth potential of leisure and hospitality industry at Resorts World Genting”.
Things will then kick up a notch with a Barista Smackdown and Latte Art Throwdown competitions scheduled for the second and third day.
