Date Coffee is the home of Dafé. Delicious. Fresh. Caffeine-free. Sustainable. Comforting. Enjoy an alternative coffee date.
Date Coffee Co (DCC) is an online company based on the Surrey/Hampshire border. We specialise is the roasting of Dafé. What is Dafé (life café but with a 'd'), we hear you ask?
Dafé is a 100% caffeine-free coffee alternative made from the roasted up-cycled seeds from dates. Fresh and delicious, Dafé tastes somewhere between chocolate coffee and tea.
DCC co-founders Rupert and Rachael are keen cyclists and runners. Ever on the quest to live a healthier lifestyle, they came across this caffeine-free drink whilst running in Lebanon a number of years ago. Fast-forward a few years and Date Coffee was born, providing UK customers with a delicious coffee alternative.
One of DCC's goals is to have as low a carbon footprint as possible. We use only plant-based compostable coffee bags with no foil or plastic, FSC certified kraft corrugated cardboard envelopes/boxes and paper based tape. We believe enjoying good coffee doesn't need to be at the expense of the environment.
"Dafe has made it super easy to cut down my caffeine intake. It brews like coffee [in my cafetiere] and is really refreshing. Tastes great too."
"Initially I wasn’t sure about any coffee alternative but trying Dafe has changed my mind. It’s a very satisfying option if you don’t want caffeine. I drink mine black as I would normal coffee and I really enjoy it. Try it and you’ll be very pleasantly surprised."
