    FloridaNative's Note:

    "Real, New Orleans-style coffee must be dark roast, brewed strong, and must include chicory. In fact, most of the coffee drunk in the Crescent City is a coffee-and-chicory blend". Some well-known local coffee-and-chicory brands are French Market (my personal favorite), Community Coffee, Cafe du Monde or Union. Brew your coffee in a drip coffeemaker only, and serve with half coffee and half scalded (NOT steamed!) milk. From www.gumbopages.com and posted for ZWT5.

      I used to love drinking coffee with chicory, but haven't for ages, so this was very good! I used decaf coffee and added chicory that I got from the health food store. Thanks! Made for the Epicurean Queens for ZWT 2009.

      A very pleasant way to start the day. I usually don't have cream or sugar in my morning coffee, but I did so for the purpose of making this recipe. And I think it was a very nice way to enjoy my morning coffee. Made for ZWT5.

      This brought back good memories of our trip to N'awlins a few years ago.Loved reliving this; Wish I could have had a beignet to accompany it. I ended up making it with a coffee I bought in Seattle.I sprinkled a bit of cinnamon on it( I guess that's a no-no)but I enjoyed. Thanks for posting this. I made it for ZWT5. Rita
