I know that piping to pbcopy copies command line outputs to the clipboard.

How can I still show the output in the terminal ?

The tool of choice is called tee. Full description is available via man tee but you canprobably just use

echo test | tee >(pbcopy)

to get the result you are looking for.

You could just pbpaste immediately after.
echo test | pbcopy | pbpaste
