Hackney Rascal Coffee is a single-origin coffee born in Guatemala and roasted in London. Over 150 years ago, my great-great-GREAT grandfather, Manuel Matheu Ariza, started one of the first ever coffee farms in all of Guatemala and sold his first harvest nowhere else but London. He was known as the "grandfather of coffee" in Guatemala or, as I like to call him, the Original Rascal.
Today, I continue to honour that legacy and deliver Guatemalan specialty coffee to the UK. Rascal’s focus is to deliver high-quality coffee and value for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
We are proud to work with farmers directly in collaboration with my mother & sister at Coffee Bird so that not only premium Guatemalan coffee is shared with the world, but the supply chain is shortened, meaning their investment and well-being are ensured at every step of the process.
