Coffee, chicory + drip art

Coffe with chicory, the root from the endive plant.

"Must have coffee" - made from drip coffee

"Exhilaration", coffee art.

Coffee and chicory was developed by the French during their civil war as coffee was very scare. Adding chicory made the sludge that was coffee then nearly palatable- much more in fact. Chicory softened the bitter edge to the coffee,  added body, flavor and an almost chocolate taste to the coffee. The Café Du Monde coffee and chicory is traditionally served au lait (mixed half and half with hot milk).
