Espresso with Chicory
Espresso can be mixed with Chicory root when ground and roasted, which serves to reduce bitterness and lower the acidity while maintaining a high concentration of solids. When made with milk, the flavour of the drink is transformed entirely and offers a pleasant repas from your daily brew. Making a Cafe Du Monde using real chicory and espresso is unimitable and will leave you craving it on-and-off again.
Since chicory is naturally caffeine-free, these espresso-chicory mixtures are more suitable than straight espresso for evening drinking, where one wants to avoid excessive caffeine if they wish to sleep well.
