Frontier Co-op Organic Roasted Chicory Root (Cichorium intybus) makes a great non-caffeinated coffee substitute. Chicory is a larger relative of the dandelion, chicory was in cultivation for thousands of years along the Nile River in Egypt, then spread to America in the 18th century. Chicory root is a hardy European perennial best known for its association with coffee, producing a similar roasted beverage with a robust flavor profile.
Chicory root is commonly used to make a caffeine-free coffee substitute. Chicory coffee is a delicious beverage that has a similar flavor to actual coffee, but with less stimulating properties. You can also add chicory to enhance the roasted, nutty flavor of regular coffee. To prepare as a tea, pour 8 oz. boiling water over 1 tsp. of herb, cover and steep 3-5 minutes. Strain and serve immediately.
