This is us:

Olga

Olga

Co-Founder

Originally from Moscow, Olga also has Israeli roots and lived in Tel Aviv before moving to Lisbon. She is a designer and had her own apartment renovation business, also previously working in design and photo studios.

A latte lover, she worked as a barista in Tel Aviv and when she created Buna, she had the chance to combine her two passions: coffee and interior design. Olga loves Buna´s vibes and the support net that the place naturally creates for regular customers and its own staff.

Oleg

Oleg

Operations Manager

Born and raised in Moscow, Oleg had a design studio and events agency. Before Buna, this is the shocking way he used to drink coffee: instant coffee mixed with milk and sugar! But after coming to Buna and trying specialty coffee for the first time, he completely changed his views and taste. Oleg now is a double shot latte lover that “only the best baristas in Lisbon can do – and well, they all work at Buna!”. You might not see him, but rest assured: he is usually inside the kitchen preparing great toasts for you!


Petrus

From The Netherlands, land of great coffee roasteries, meet Petrus! Also a flat white aficionado. For him Lisbon is a “warm and authentic city, where people truly seem to enjoy life”. He worked as a high school teacher and mentor for difficult learning teenagers and he is an professional actor and theatermaker. Here in Lisbon he also teaches English to immigrants. His favorite thing about Buna? The fact that we are all about “good coffee and good connections.”
