Mmmmmmm. Now I have to have a good cup of coffee with that. A good fair trade organic coffee is Kaffe Magnum Opus, or KMO for short. Awsome coffee! http://www.kmocoffee.com

Funny, I was just about to comment the same as above.
We made this earlier and just tasted the wonderful dates in the mixture,they were organic and gave evn more of themselves in the cake.
Washed down with our favorite espresso coffee, velluto nero.
