New Orleans Café Au Lait
“The secret to this coffee is the earthy taste of chicory. A dark roast works best and if you mix the chicory in yourself you can vary the proportions to suit your tastes (20-40% chicory for most people). I recommend 25% chicory. The proportion of milk to coffee can also be varied to suit your taste. If you can’t find chicory or coffee premixed with chicory in your area, both are available online at orleanscoffee.com/ and premixed is also available at cafedumonde.com/ or neworleanscoffeeworks.com/ or frenchmarketcoffee.com”

Delicious! I almost felt as though I was sitting in the French Quarter! The steamed milk and chicory coffee makes all the difference. Thank you littleturtle for posting!
Oh yes, strong and hot….the best way to have coffee. I got a nice chicory blend from a local market to use for this. Thanks for posting, it was a treat.
