1.05 Each

Product Overview

Chicory root is a hardy perennial best known for its association with coffee, producing a more roasted flavor without caffeine. A larger relative of the dandelion, chicory has been in cultivation for thousands of years along the Nile River in Egypt. Over time it spread north, and Europeans brought it to America in the 18th century. You can now find it naturalized over a wide area. The leaves are used in salads and spring tonics much the same was as dandelion greens. Just like dandelions, it has a large taproot, and it's this root that's been used as a substitute for and complement to coffee.

    Roasting chicory provides a bittersweet taste that resembles but, coffee lovers will agree, does not duplicate that of coffee. Some coffees offer blends with up to 30 percent chicory, which cuts down on the caffeine content of the blend.
