Date Coffee Co is a unique company based on the border of Surrey and Hampshire. It makes coffee from Dafé, which is a caffeine-free coffee alternative, made by roasting the upcycled seeds of dates. It tastes like a cross between tea and chocolate coffee.
The co-founders are keen runners and cyclists, and came across this drink, while running a few years ago in Lebanon. Now they have brought this low-carbon drink to England, and sell the coffee in compostable plant-based coffee bags with no foil or plastic, sold in cardboard boxes with paper-based tape.
Just prepare in the same way as coffee with a cafetiere, moka pot or espresso. Nice with a dash of oat milk, and good as an afternoon or evening drink, or for anyone wishing to reduce their caffeine consumption. Mixed with hot frothy plant milk, you also get a nice hot chocolate alternative. May contain traces of nuts.
