Topic: Anyone use chickory? (15 msgs / 218 lines)
1) From: David F Iseminger
Last month I saw a friend of mine who I recently got into roasting and he
laid several pounds of greens on me.  along with them there was a bag of
Chickory with a note that said "For new orleans style coffee add one part
chickory to two parts roasted coffee"  A few minutes ago I put some in my
french press along with some India Malobar (Though it was not quite 2 to
1 more like half a scoop of chickory to 2 1/2 scoops coffee) and while I
wouldn't drink it everyday it is good  and makes for a nice change of
pace.  Anyone else use this?

David,
After having lived around and worked in New Orleans for the last 12 years, I
have never acquired a taste for chicory.  I'm certain, like anything else it
is better fresh (and I've entertained getting some), but I could never
tolerate it unless it had just been brewed.

along the same lines, anyone know where to get it?  I just did a quick
look at SM and didn't see it

4) From: David F Iseminger
I have been to New Orleans all of one time for about 12 hours.  During
that time I did get to set at the cafe du monde in the quarter and have
Cafe Au Lait and those little doughnut deals.  Was certainly a good
coffee memory

Look under "Islands & Others" ... its just above the Kona.

Beignets (been-yayz) ... they do go great with coffee.  The place has a nice
atmosphere and it is one of the more positive aspects of New Orleans.

I like chicory in my coffee.  I don't drink it every day, but I do drink it
quite frequently. My gr grandparents would only drink chicory coffee and
since I spent a fair amount of time with them I drank it too.  They talked
about times when they couldn't get coffee so they only drank chicory. Not
sure if I like it that much, but if I was desperate, I might.

Only when in New Orleans. I think it is a waste of time to homeroast and th=

 too many non-coffee flavors for me. Remember, I'm a purist...

exactly what is chickory anyways?   i was told it was a cheap additive 
thrown into coffee to take out bitterness of substandard beans.... then 
again, I was told many things that didn't turn out to be true... like 
that I was a nice person for example....

13) From: Eddie Dove
IIRC, it is a root ... it was used many blue moons ago to make coffee go
further (during wars and such) because it is "similar" in taste ...
"complimentary" might be another term ... at least that is the New Orleans
folklore on the stuff.
I will say, that while coffee stales and loses its flavor, I think chicory
is less so ... it still has quite a taste, albeit probably not the same as
fresh chicory.

This tells you more than you probably want to know about chickory.
