    The captivating history of Maatouk Coffee began with the birth of its visionary founder, Mahmoud Maatouk, in Beirut, in 1931. Even at a young age, Mahmoud's passion for coffee ignited the spark of a promising business. At the tender age of 18, he laid the foundation of his enterprise in Azarieh, downtown Beirut, and from that moment, success became a constant companion.

    In 1960, a significant milestone marked the remarkable growth of Maatouk Maison du Café, aligning with the flourishing prosperity of the charming city it called home. This pivotal year witnessed the establishment of the original Maatouk Maison du Café roastery in Azarieh, which soon expanded into a series of culinary destinations a restaurant, a pastry and sweet shop, and a café. Mahmoud Maatouk's pioneering initiative quickly became the talk of the town.

In 1977, Maatouk Maison du Café extended its reach, unveiling a coffee shop in Khaldeh. This renowned branch, located in southern Beirut, swiftly emerged as the nation's leading coffee roaster, recognized for its exceptional sales, diverse offerings, and the esteemed Maatouk family name.
  • Late 1970s

    As the civil war escalated in Lebanon, the Maatouk family sought refuge in the UK. In the late 1970s, Mahmoud Maatouk founded a coffee factory in Hayes, Middlesex, becoming a trailblazer in producing premium Lebanese coffee blends on British soil.

Late 1980s
Amidst the persistent political turmoil in Lebanon during the late 1980s, the Maatouk family embarked on yet another expansion, this time to Dusseldorf, Germany. Mahmoud Maatouk initiated a thriving business venture that flourished for several years, cementing the Maatouk legacy in international markets.

    In the 1990s, a profound desire to return to their roots stirred within the Maatouk family. Determined to believe in the revival of their home country, they made the decision to settle permanently in Lebanon, the heart of the Middle East. Perhaps it was the yearning to be close to Mahmoud Maatouk's birthplace and to spend his twilight years in the land closest to his heart that guided this poignant choice.

In 1996, Mahmoud Maatouk bid farewell to this world, leaving behind an invaluable tradition and a legacy of cherished values for his children to uphold.

    In 2001, a dream turned into reality when Jawad Maatouk, who had accompanied his father on countless journeys and developed an intimate love and understanding of the coffee bean, established a state-of-the-art coffee production factory in the Bchamoun Industrial Area of Lebanon. This significant leap forward enabled Maatouk Coffee to cater to a broader audience in both local and international markets.

Returning to Downtown Beirut, Maatouk Azarieh triumphantly reopened its doors in 2003 after an absence of more than three decades. Once again, the vibrant city was filled with the alluring aroma of Maatouk's freshly brewed coffee blends.
