1: Café Du Monde Coffee Chicory
This Chicory coffee by Café Du Monde is bold and rich in flavor. It comes in an easy to open can with a lid, and is also very easy to make and serve. It allows you to experience the Coffee and Chicory blend served at the Café Du Monde, the Original French Market Coffee Stand, at the comfort of your home. This popular New Orleans landmark has been located in the French Market since the early 1880’s.
One user on Amazon said that this coffee is perfect for people that suffer from anxiety after consuming regular coffee. They said that they suffer from anxiety that is induced by caffeine, and that they have tried several different natural non coffee brands, but they never taste like actual coffee and don’t give them the energy they need in the morning. This is the only coffee they have come across that fits their needs.
Another user added that this is the only coffee used in their house anymore, and added that anyone who tries it would be hooked from the first sip. They also added that the coffee is pretty strong, but if someone likes lighter coffee, they can just use less ground. They also praised the affordability of the product.See more reviews
