"Date Mate"?

Testimonials  and Reviews

Pour Over (Manual Drip) Method


The Pour Over extraction method is great for those who prefer complete control over the strength of their brew, not because they  are control freaks, but because of the sheer enjoyment and full experience of the quality Date Mate date seed coffee.

The results are almost always great with the finer qualities of the ground better highlighted.


Some Tips To Know Before You Begin:

The first pour is known as the bloom pour which saturates all of the grounds. The bloom pour should be made slow and steady in spiral motions in order to allow the water to pull out more flavor from the grounds. This will result in a richer and more robust flavor.

You should pour in slow and steady spirals to keep things even.


And lastly, make adjustments!

Date Mate will taste great and different using various preparation methods.

But it will taste best if you give it a few runs to create your own perfect cup.

Pour Over Extraction Method for All Date Mate Products


1) Fold The Filter Into a Cone Shape (fold if using a paper filter)


2) Measure Out Your Grounds To Water

A good rule of thumb is 4.7 oz of water for every 2 teaspoons (10 grams) of ground date seeds (Find what works for you).


3) Heat Up The Water

For pour over coffee you’ll probably want water as hot-off-the-boil as possible.


This is because there’s no “open spout” lever that controls how long the water is trapped with the ground date seeds. Instead, the water can fall through into the mug or collecting vessel on its own. Therefore, the hotter water speeds up dissolution and ensures a properly extracted cup.


4) Saturate the Grounds

Let it bloom for 20-30 seconds. Like coffee, date seed coffee de-gasses or “blooms”. The date seed "bed" should raise up and bubble a bit.


5) Continue Pouring to Produce Your Cup

Slowly and continuously pour hot water to maintain only the thinnest layer of water on top of the grounds.

The pouring of water should be done in a slow, even spiral, adding water every 10 – 15 seconds for an even extraction.

Pour over the dark spots and avoid the light ones.


6) Serve, Enjoy and Always Experiment Again

The entire brew process for a 10oz mug takes about three - four minutes.


Date Mate tastes fantastic with milk and sugar or their alternatives.


We encourage you to experiment with it to find the best method for you and your manual drip coffee maker.


And remember there’s no right or wrong here. It’s all about your personal preference.

“My wife gave me a cup of Date Mate  without telling me she had switched from our regular brand of coffee.  To be honest, I couldn’t taste the difference.  In fact, we enjoyed it so much we had to brew a second pot.  I think it will be easy to take a break from caffeine."

"I love to drink coffee but one cup leads to another and then another and then I find that I get anxious and irritable.  A good friend told me about Date Mate alternative coffee made from date seeds, and I decided to give it a try.  I am sure glad I did.  All of the taste and none of the side effects.  I am sleeping better too!"

"I have been drinking coffee for well over 40 years.  Since I take Thyroid, my doctor suggested I significantly decrease my caffeine intake. Since I didn’t want to miss out on my favorite morning routine, I made the switch to Date Mate, and I feel so much better. I have more energy and my concentration has improved! It looks, smells, tastes and brews just like regular coffee! I am telling everyone I know!  I am a customer for life!"

"I am so glad that you have made this healthy, delicious beverage easily available online! I have been looking for a coffee substitute other than decaf, which irritates my stomach due to the acid I tried the original Date Connoisseur, and I can drink as much as I like and it does not bother my tummy.  I can't wait to try the hazelnut Amazing Date!"
