1/3 Photos of New Orleans Style Cafe Au Lait
"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.

Units: US | Metric
- 1Bring the water almost to a boil, to a temperature of 204-208 degrees F.
- 2Using a drip-style coffeemaker with filter, pour a small amount of the water over the coffee grounds to dampen them, then wait 30 seconds.
- 3Pour more water over the grounds until the upper pot container is full.
- 4Allow to drain, then repeat until all the water is used.
- 5Scald, do NOT boil, the milk. This means to heat it until JUST below the boiling point.
- 6Pour coffee into warmed large mugs, then add the milk.
- 7Add sweetener if desired and serve.
