Coffee with Chicory – New Orleans Style Coffee Blend ~ What is it and Where to Buy it
Posted: While Drinking Coffee! | The Cafe
Chicory was originall used in Germany as a coffee substitite to avoid the tax on imported goods.
The taste is both sweet and bitter (and it has NO caffeine), so when it is added to coffee you are getting less caffeine.
Chicory was used as a low cost coffee, often add to coffee to make 'more' coffee last longer.
The cans of coffee with chicory you can buy are often priced HIGHER than regular coffee.
One of those coffee mixtures that are worth trying at least once before you buy a whole can.
This is a popular coffee drink in New Orleans.
