A South Louisianna favorite. For the most part tourists can't stand it and locals can't live without it, but one thing's for sure: this WILL wake you up in the morning. Traditionally made in a French Drip pot, called a biggin, but a modern electric coffee maker works just fine.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pinch salt (salt brings out extra flavor in the coffee)
  • 12 cup ground dark-roast coffee and chicory blend
  • 7 cups water (3 1/2 pints)


  1. Place salt in basket of coffee pot with the coffee grounds.
  2. Pour water into resevoir and start coffee.
  3. Serve hot.
