We developed Daffee as we love the taste and the ritual of coffee but can’t drink it because of the caffeine content and dietary restrictions. Hence, we created Daffee as an alternative to coffee so that everyone can still have their ritual and daily joy with a unique, healthy spin.
Date seeds are normally regarded as a residual product. We upcycle these seeds and give them a worthy purpose. In addition, we collect the date seeds from organic date farms, making Daffee a circular and sustainable product.
Idea of Daffee
Rahaf had surgery for a stomach issue in 2013, and due to the post-surgery restrictions, she was missing out on crucial nutrients. After consulting specialists for a solution, she was advised to eat dates as they have a tremendous nutritional value.
Normally speaking, the seeds of the date are wasted and thrown away, both by private consumers as in production processes. However, as Rahaf really doesn’t like waste, she kept the date seeds and soon realized that they held a lot of benefits. She then decided to produce a drink from them, but because of the war and many conflicts in her native Syria, it seemed impossible to do so. Now, years later, she has made her dreams come true and launched Daffee together with Tamim in the Netherlands.
We aim to provide all our customers with an innovative, caffeine-free beverage rich in flavors, which promotes a healthy lifestyle. In doing so, we offer it at a price that is fair to both our producers and our customers.
Our commitment to best practices lies in customer service, the environment, corporate responsibility, and a community that is defining of Daffee.
We aspire to be the market leader of the highest quality and most sustainable coffee substitute beverages and date products.
