What is Chicory Coffee?
Chicory is a herb that is often used instead of coffee because it doesn’t have caffeine. It is best known for being used in New Orleans coffee (also called “chicory coffee”) recipes, but you can brew it on its own and enjoy its dark, rich taste. Chicory is a good choice if you want to drink something that tastes like coffee but doesn’t have caffeine. The taste is a lot like regular coffee, but no caffeine exists.
The roots of the chicory plant are used to make this hot drink.
