The event hosted over 100 guests, highlighting senior representatives of Lavazza International, Marketing & Distribution partners, celebrities, bloggers and media.

The event generated positive buzz on social media, through numerous posts and stories from participants while also receiving extensive coverage by the most important media in Albania.
