- 1960 witnessed the original Maison du Café Maatouk roastery in downtown Beirut that blossoms into a succession of gourmet establishments: a restaurant, a pastry and sweet shop as well as a café. Pioneer in this initiative, Maatouk's successful step soon becomes the talk of the town.
- Maison du Café Maatouk expands and sets a 150-square-meter coffee shop in Khaldeh, in 1977. The famous branch in southern Beirut soon becomes the leader in the coffee roasting industry across the nation in terms of sales, variety, and family name pedigree.
- The civil war erupts in Lebanon and destroys businesses. Due to force majeure, the Maatouk family moves to the UK, where Mahmoud Maatouk founds a coffee factory in Hayes, Middlesex in the late 70s and becomes a pioneer in producing premium Lebanese coffee blends in the UK.
- Continuous political chaos in Lebanon forces the Maatouks to expand further in the late 80s, this time to Dusseldorf, Germany. Mahmoud Maatouk initiates a successful business that prospers for several years.
- Abandoning success for believing in the revival of the home-country, the Maatouk family returns to Lebanon and re-founds a coffee factory in Dohat al Hoss in the early 90s. In fact, the Maatouk revival takes place in the beginning of the 90s and is marked by a fusion of taste, culture, heritage, and an intuitive grasp of the world's most innovative trends.
- A dream finally came true in 2001: a state-of-the-art coffee production factory is founded in Bchamoun Industrial Area, Lebanon. This huge progress allows the operation to cater to a wider audience in the local and external markets.
- Back to Downtown Beirut, Maatouk Azarieh is reopened in 2003 after more than 3 decades of absence. The glowing city is back scented with Maatouk's fresh coffee blends.
- And the story goes on. Maatouk Coffee is an-eye witness to success as days pass by.
