I first came across date coffee after finding it on a stall at our local Farmers Market.

It is only called date coffee because it goes through the same roasting, grinding and brewing process. The process required to craft a smooth, fresh caffeine-free drink which can be enjoyed as an alternative to edgy buzz you get from too much coffee coffee.

Date coffee in the UK

Dating back for thousands of years in Middle Eastern cultures it can be found wherever dates are grown. A little lighter than regular coffee, it is more refreshing, more hydrating and more chocolatey and of course caffeine free.

Emsworth

There are more coffee shops in Emsworth than there are Estate Agents which is a good sign.

Loretta’s Coffee Bar on the High St is a quirky cafe with a distinctly Italian feel to it. Besides coffee, cake and a light lunch menu they sell olive oil, wine, post cards and newspapers.

Cafe on Platform 2 is another. However, more often than not, it is closed. But if you understand the difference half a mug of condensed milk makes to the usual house coffee, this is the only place to go.
