From the time it was discovered, which was thousands of years ago, dates were known to have healing powers. And while science has proved that for sure, we love to eat them mostly because of how delicious these fruits taste.
Generally, when dates are consumed, the seeds are discarded as food waste, whether at home, in supermarkets supply chains, or in food manufacturing. But here at Daffee, there was no way we were about to waste them at all.
We turn those organic date seeds into an excellent coffee alternative drink that is healthy, caffeine-free, gluten-free, non-acidic, yet is a natural energy booster that is full of vitamins, ions, and proteins.
Studies have shown that date seeds possess high amounts of phenolic acids and flavonoids. These compounds are known to have many beneficial effects, including antioxidant, antidiabetic, and anti-inflammatory activities, that help with the reduction of cardiovascular issues. Date seeds have been also cited to remarkably have up to 10 times higher compounds than its fruits and other popular dietary antioxidant-rich food products.
That’s why Daffee is the perfect sustainable, environmentally friendly alternative to coffee for people who are health-conscious and don’t want the negative side effects of caffeine.
So, how exactly is Daffee made:
Daffee is made from the finest organic date fruits in the market, with no additives or preservatives whatsoever, and only from organic dates that are certified as having been produced to fair trade standards by fair trade organizations.
The ripe date fruits are harvested, and they are picked individually by hand.
Once the dates have been picked, processing begins as quickly as possible, by separating the seeds from the date fruits.
Then, the seeds are thoroughly washed and left to dry completely.
Next is the most important step, which is roasting. The roasting process has a major influence on the quality and flavor of Daffee. The roasted date seeds develop a unique bold aroma.
Once cooled after roasting, the date seeds are carefully grounded to deliver an exquisite flavor.
Finally, our product is filled in 100% biodegradable & sustainable packaging to help our planet while preserving the flavor & aroma and ensuring optimal freshness.
The result is a unique drink that tastes somewhere in between coffee and tea with a little hint of chocolate!
