If you love Blue Bottle Coffee Co., you can now make your own New Orleans coffee at home with their New Orleans Iced Kit. Chicory root has been used as an inexpensive coffee substitute for a long time. However, many people combine the two in a coffee and chicory blend, most often associated with the residents of New Orleans and those attending Mardi Gras festivities. The unique and addictive beverage can be difficult to locate outside the Louisiana city, but no longer!
The New Orleans-style kit contains Blue Bottle Coffee Co.'s recipe, their New Orleans coffee blend and an envelope filled with pre-measured roasted French chicory. At home you can add your own whole milk, organic sugar and ice.
