New Orleans Café Au Lait

The secret to this coffee is the earthy taste of chicory. A dark roast works best and if you mix the chicory in yourself you can vary the proportions to suit your tastes (20-40% chicory for most people). I recommend 25% chicory. The proportion of milk to coffee can also be varied to suit your taste. If you can't find chicory or coffee premixed with chicory in your area, both are available online at and premixed is also available at or or
