By Judy K. Polhemus VINE VOICE on May 25, 2009
It's summer. It's so muggy you can see the steam rise off the pavement. Yep, you're in the semi-tropics now. It's New Orleans and the living is easy. And it is 8 o'clock in the morning. Time for cafe au lait made with coffee and chicory and a plate of beignets dusted with powdered sugar. It's the chicory that gives cafe au lait its robust, mellowed down flavor.

Chicory? What is chicory? Thought you would never ask. I just happen to have that answer right here:
From Wikipedia: "Root chicory (Cichorium intybus var. sativum) has been in cultivation in Europe as a coffee substitute. The roots are baked, ground, and used as a coffee substitute and additive, especially in the Mediterranean region (where the plant is native), although its use as a coffee additive is also very popular in India, parts of Southeast Asia and the American South, particularly in New Orleans. Chicory, with sugar beet and rye was used as an ingredient of the East German Mischkaffee (mixed coffee), introduced during the "coffee crisis" of 1976-9." Chicory is also related to endive and raddichio.

Cafe au lait is strong coffee mixed half with hot milk, and sugar added as desired. There is nothing like it, especially when drunk in the atmosphere of New Orleans.

Note that this is a very coarse grind, so do not try brewing it in a paper filter type maker, and definitely not in Keurig or espresso type makers. The grind is all wrong for those. Use with a French press or a percolator (I use a Farberware Classic Stainless Steel Percolator specifically for this coffee.

Because the chicory in this blend is fairly prominent, I usually make my coffee au lait style. Actually, I make it more like cafe Cubano with scalded or steamed milk, but that is a personal preference. If you have never tried a chicory blended coffee you may want to at least use a little cream or milk and a touch of sugar, even if you normally take your coffee black. Once you grow accustomed to the chicory you can cut back on the additives until you can enjoy it straight up. I'll forewarn you, though, that once you develop a taste for this you will get cravings at the oddest times.

Chicory in coffee was practically the de facto blend when I was growing up in Virginia. It's a traditional flavor throughout the south and especially New Orleans. I do not often drink this coffee, but when I have a craving this is the only brand that I trust.

If you are from New Orleans I am guessing that you associate this with beignets. I prefer mine with a palmier or one of my favorites, Stella D'oro Original Breakfast Treats.

I have been to NOLA twice, and both times drank as much Cafe Du Monde as possible. Make it 50% coffee (I use a french press) and 50% hot whole milk. I get mine at the local asian market for $3.65 a can but this price is fair for the coffee, and it is simply the best, full chickory taste. Great with grits in the morning too!

There is a reason that this is the preferred (maybe exclusive?) brand for the famous Vietnamese ice coffee. In black, I do not quite enjoy the taste. The bitterness overwhelms other flavors. But with cream and sugar, the taste transforms. It becomes rich yet smooth. It is so easy and addictive to drink that you can get caffeine overdosed without knowing it until bedtime. I happens to have a can of Cafe Bustelo for comparison. Although Cafe Bustelo also receives rave reviews, Cafe Du Monde gets my vote for cream coffee.

This coffee comes in drip grind. But I would not recommend using drip coffee maker as the brew would be too diluted. If you do not have the time of coffee press, I recommend using Senseo (http://www.amazon.com/Senseo-Single-Serve-Gourmet-Coffee-Machine/dp/B001QTVS5K). It takes me 10 seconds to make a Senseo coffee pod with a regular 4-cup basket coffee filters. The brew from Senseo is stronger than drip coffee maker with crema on top similar to the result from an espresso machine. You will love the result without the mess from a coffee press.

Since this is the coffee of choice for Vietnamese ice coffee, you can find this coffee sold in most large Asian supermarkets. You will also find that the price in the local markets significantly lower than online.

I love this coffee. Its pretty much the only thing I drink but these prices are steep.

There are several Asian Markets in the San Gabriel Valley (near Los Angeles) that sell these for $4.00-$4.50 per can.

I've never had chicory coffee before, or chicory at all for that matter, so I didn't know what it tasted like. I still don't.
This coffee just tastes like coffee; I don't taste any other flavors in there.
However, it's still good coffee, and was pretty cheap as well. When you're drinking it, you first taste the dark roast coffee. Then, you prepare yourself for the bitter taste that comes after, only it never comes. I assume this is because of the chicory, but I don't know. Either way, if you want a dark roasted coffee with less bitterness, this is for you.

I am always on the search for a good robust, deep, rich coffee flavor. I have tried many and many that I enjoy include Sumatra, Kenya, and Kona blends.

I read the reviews on this coffee and had to give it a try. I was sooo excited when it showed up. went straight to the kitchen and put one mounded scoop in my Hamilton Beach "The Scoop" in order to make a 14oz cup. I use a little cream and sugar. First sip.... this stuff is awful. I guess people have different taste in Louisiana. I'll try one more sip..... yuk! still awful.

I set the can on the edge of the counter near the garbage can and was going to toss it. Then I thought, why waste it? Maybe my wife will like it. So I decided to make her a cup. Then I remembered reading a review about the way it was served in New Orleans. Approximately Half coffee, half cream and a little sugar. So, I poured about 3 or 4 oz out of her cup into a teacup for me to try this way. WOW!!!!!! What a great flavor. Strong, deep, rich and almost a slight chocolate flavor.

That was a completely unexpected result, but, not the last surprise. A few minutes later....Pow! I got an energy burst that even a Monster or Red Bull can't deliver. Let me inform you that I drink coffee from the time I get up until I go to bed with no effect. Mind you, I drank only one teacup of this. I won't drink this all day long because of the strength and the cost of real cream, but, I WILL start each morning with a small cup of this from now on to kickstart my day.

I hope this review was helpful.
