Diana Augūnaitė

I am an experienced specialist in international communication, marketing, and project management, with the know-how of public relations and mass media, with a strong analytical and strategic background. I love being a part of unique events and projects, and no doubt, the most significant coffee festival in the Baltics – Vilnius Coffee Festival – is one of them!

Laurynas Arlauskas

Events Coordinator

National Lithuania Barista champion 2016 and 2017, placed 22nd and 27th in WBC. 2018 National Barista Championship technical judge. 2019 and 2020 National coffee competitions organizer.

Akvile Armonaite

Education Coordinator

2013 was the year when I started working with coffee, and now I still have a massive passion for everything that involves coffee. I have attended Barista camps, World of Coffee events, national championships, and I am eager to learn. I have been working with the Vilnius Coffee festival for four years, and three years in a row, I have coordinated the education space. I am happy to have an opportunity to spread the word about coffee and help to increase the knowledge of coffee in Lithuania. Coffee is about sharing, and it is about people – we have to share our knowledge to improve!
