How to Add Chicory to Coffee

Chicory is a perennial herb with cornflower blue blossoms. Blended with coffee, ground chicory adds body, smoothness and a bit of mellow, caramel-like sweetness. And because chicory is naturally caffeine-free, blending it with your coffee reduces its normal caffeine level.

Use half your usual amount of coffee grounds. For example, if you typically make 8 cups of coffee using 8 tablespoons of ground coffee, use only 4 tablespoons.

Add the same amount of ground roasted chicory.

Pour the full amount of water needed into the well of your coffee maker. For example, if you added 4 tablespoons of coffee and 4 tablespoons of chicory, add 8 cups water.

Brew as usual.
