What are Chicory Beverages?

Chicory beverages are made from roasted chicory root.   For hundreds of years infusions of chicory have been known and appreciated on different continents as a nutritional and valuable drink as an alternative to coffee, tea and cocoa.

Chicory root tea is made by steeping chicory root - ground or chopped.  Chicory coffee is a beverage made using the roots of the chicory plant, which are roasted, ground and brewed into a coffee-like drink.  Chicory coffee tastes similar to coffee but has a flavor that's often described as slightly woody and nutty.  It's used either on its own or mixed with coffee to complement its flavour.

Tea or Coffee - Hot or Cold

This kind of coffee-chicory mixture is also popular in New Orleans, and in some other countries. While this tradition likely started as a way to stretch coffee grounds (which are more expensive than chicory root), some people now do it as a way to lessen the caffeine content of a cup of coffee.
While chicory root coffee is delicious and caffeine-free, it doesn't really contain much fiber, since the grounds are strained out of the finished drink. There's nothing wrong with that, but keep in mind that you won't get the same prebiotic benefits from chicory root coffee as from the root itself.
