What a great way to "come alive" on a Sunday morning! Great flavor. I used half-and-half, and no sugar. Eons ago, in my college days, a roommate used to use French Market chicory coffee and i would have a cup of it now and then. I always liked the slight bitterness of it, but have not had any for years. Thanks for reminding me how much I liked it. I will be having it more often now! Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.
