Chicory Root Grind - FRENCH CHICORY

Chicory is a plant that looks like a blue dandelion when in bloom. The root of the chicory plant is cultivated and processed as a coffee substitute. In times of coffee shortages throughout history, chicory, which grows beyond the coffee belt, could be cultivated, roasted, ground and mixed with coffee. In the mid-1700s, coffee with a French influence, typically imported through New Orleans, had a chicory additive that imparted body and softened the bitter edge of the dark roasted coffee with a chocolate flavor. This practical solution to a coffee scarcity evolved into a traditional New Orleans beverage.

washed & sun dried and cups with notes of dark chocolate, a slight citrus sweetness, some nuttiness and a well rounded body
Aged outside in monsoon season. Akin to dry wine, earthy, pronounced nuttiness, with a tea-like flavor.
With milky notes of vanilla, and a nutty aftertaste, with heavy strawberry aromas that carry over into a stone fruit flavor.

Can’t go to New Orleans? Have a hankering for some Café du Monde with chicory? Served traditionally café au lait (half coffee ☕️ and half milk 🥛)? I dark roasted Kenya AA and used dark roasted chicory from india. I measured two scoops of coffee and two scoops of chicory to the grinder and ground just a little finer than medium. Measured out for a 8-cup pot. Actually, cup size is six ounces. Look out Café du Monde! You can’t touch this for freshness!! 😀 Serve with or without sweet (sugar). Make your own beignets (french pastry squares, sprinkled with powdered sugar, similar to fried dough).👍
