Yikes! This will certainly get you wide awake in the morning. First time I ever tried coffee with chicory. I love coffee and usually drink about 3 cups of black coffee per day. I couldn't drink it without adding a package of Splenda, and even then I think this is an acquired taste.
I was able to find Cafe du Monde Coffee and Chicory. However, since I don't have a coffee brewer or even press, I had to look up how to do this without one. I poured boiling water over it; steeped three minutes; stirred; steeped another three minutes. I then poured it through a very fine strainer into a cup that already contained the heated milk and cream. (Missed the part about pouring together.) Aak. BITTER. I don't know how much of this is my stupid brewing method or the chicory, as other people have commented that chicory is indeed bitter. However, it grew on me as I drank the cup. I do enjoy having a coffee drink with only some caffeine, however, versus a full load of it. I'm not feeling jittery at all. It's about like tea if terms of impact. ZWT9
Yum! All I needed was the beignets to transport me back to Cafe du Monde in New Orleans. The Community Coffee brand with chicory is sold here and is nearly as good as the Cafe du Monde blend. I really enjoyed this treat. Made for Mike and the Appliance Killers for ZWT9.
So nice. I used to drink chicory coffee alot back in the day, so this was brought back memories. Much enjoyed, thanks! Made for ZWT by a Hot Stuff.
I love cafe au lait and this charming recipe is no exception. Wow, was this good; dark, bold, rich and creamy. I love the nutty slightly bitter flavor of the chicory in the coffee. I bought a small can of coffee that already had chicory in it, this worked really well. With the cream, milk and sugar this coffee was the bomb. Thanks so much for sharing.

Wonderful café au lait! I don't get the ready made New Orleans style coffee here, so I mixed regular coffee and chicory in a 50 percent ratio. For the milk I used goat's milk and for the heavy cream almond cream. This made a wonderful blend, I love the nutty, malty bitterness of the chicory.

Very good! Nice and creamy and I just happened to have a can of New Orleans style chicory coffee! Perfect morning pick me up! Made for ZWT9
Great pick me up mid morning today!! I made this as written, using "French Market" chicory coffee, 2% milk and the heavy cream, and just like loof, I added 1 packet of "Equal" to the coffee. It is a very strong coffee, so having the large amount of cream and sweetner really makes for a great coffee!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 9.
Great way to make your morning coffee special! I did add a spoonful of sugar to tone down the bitterness of the chicory flavor a bit. Love coffee this way - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
