What is Chicory Root?
A hardy perennial best known for its association with coffee, chicory root produces a more 'roasted' flavor, with no caffeine. Some coffees offer blends with up to 30% chicory, which cuts down on the caffeine content. Roasting chicory provides a bittersweet taste that resembles but, coffee lovers will agree, does not duplicate that of coffee.
