Chicory comes from the dried and roasted root of the Chicory Flower (Cichorium intybus). Throughout history, Chicory has been used as a substitute for coffee in times when coffee was in short supply, and very expensive. Caffeine free with a more "roasted" flavor than regular coffee, it is also more soluble in water, which means you use a lot less of it when brewing. It has a very distinct flavor, and can be an acquired taste for the uninitiated. Product of India.
- “We have been ordering this Ground Chicory from Coffee Bean Direct for more years than I remember. It is ALWAYS fresh and tasty. Aside from the great taste it adds to all the various flavors we use from Coffee Bean Direct, Chicory has the added bonus of providing health benefits. LOVE it! Ordering more today. Oh, yes, and it freezes VERY well, so feel free to order more so you won't run out! No, I have not been compensated by Coffee Bean Direct to say these things. In fact we frequently "gift" samples of various flavors to family and friends!”
- “Great ground chicory. I used it in my cold brew to round out the flavor. Delicious. Coffeebeandirect is the best - great products; quick delivery!”
