Though many people haven’t heard of chicory, we can tell you right off the bat that it’s very French. “Chicorée amère” is a large root that is sliced thinly, and ground into a powder. Once in powder form, chicory dilutes in cold or hot water, thus making an instant coffee drink. The catch is that chicory is caffeine free! So if you really want an evening cup of coffee but the caffeine keeps you awake, switch to chicorée. In addition, you control exactly how much chicorée you put in your water, so there’s no more unfixable too strong or too weak coffee flavor. With chicory you can always just add more powder or more water.
The Leroux brand was founded by Jean-Baptiste-Alphonse Leroux in the 1850s. For more than 60 years, Chicorée has been one of Leroux’s best-sellers. The French simply can’t go without it!
