Topic: Chicory Shot (2 msgs / 37 lines)
1) From: Les & Becky
I was 5 grams short on my second double shot this morning for an Americano.
The bag of Chicory was sitting there next to the coffee, and I thought to
myself why not!  So I tamped the short load, and then put the chicory on
top.  I then tamped and polished the Chicory into the top of the espresso.
I pulled a nice double, good dark crema.  The 25 sec. pull didn't seem to be
affected.  I made my usual Americano, and OH was it sweet!  The Chicory
added some sweetness (not a sugary sweetness), that the straight coffee just
didn't have.  I think I will try that again.  Sat. I will be roasting some
Monsooned Malabar for Chicory experiments!  I would like to hear some
reports on some of Tom's latest coffees.  What all are you discovering?
