New Orleans Coffee - Cafe Noir
  • 4 tablespoons drip-ground coffee

  • 2 tablespoons chicory

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional

  • 4 cups water, filtered

  • 1 teaspoon sugar, optional

  • Place the coffee, chicory, and salt, if using, into a filter into your brewing basket.

The addition of chicory, an ingredient made from the dried, roasted roots of a bitter herb is what makes this coffee so distinctive. Originally from Europe, chicory plants are now common in Australia, North America, and Asia. Some varieties are used for cooking, by using the leaves as a leafy green, and some others are grown to use the dried and ground roots for adding into other recipes, like in coffee.
