Our Story

Rahaf & Tamim, We met online while facing challenges due to war and visa issues. Despite the distance and obstacles, we fell in love and got engaged through online communication in 2016. Determined to be together, Rahaf pursued her master’s degree in Innovation in Spain and later sought asylum in the Netherlands in 2019. Finally, after three years of waiting, Tamim traveled to the Netherlands to meet Rahaf in person. Inspired by their love and resilience, they founded their own company called FirstDate Daffee, where they create a coffee alternative. With a supportive network, Rahaf and Tamim are determined to turn their dreams into reality and build a bright future together.
