Café Younes is a Lebanon-based specialty multi-national coffee roaster founded in 1935 that genuinely embraces modernity throughout its history. It is today the largest and oldest chain of specialty coffee shops in Lebanon.
Café Younes offers its clients a cozy, contemporary and convenient setting with a diverse menu selection, bringing the aesthetics of its authentic visual history into a contemporary setting. It also brings the roasting process to each of its outlets. By integrating the roasting journey to the café experience, Café Younes immerses its customers into a unique concept: The customers not only witness the live coffee roasting "show" but are also part of it. Each client is individually personalized and enjoys the highly praised possibility to create his/her unique signature blend.
In 2018, and in an effort to push our passion for coffee further, while remaining true to our heritage of uncompromised quality, Black Coffee by Café Younes was born as a sub-brand to Café Younes. It thoroughly specializes on sourcing, roasting and serving premium coffee beans from around the world, and proudly offers a multi-sensorial coffee experience through various roasting methods. Black Coffee’s adventure started in Dubai, with a flagship store that opened in October 2020 in Sheikh Zayed Road.
Every Café Younes and Black Coffee by Café Younes outlet has an easygoing, contemporary and convenient setting that can naturally blend in any neighborhood: It is a friendly place people consider their second home. Most importantly, it is supported by a franchise network with proven systems and procedures, in order to be able to insure that the highest possible quality is constantly predominant and meets customers’ demands in each franchised market.
