Organic Chicory Rt
I grind the granules in my coffee grinder and then use the granules to make the best ever coffee substitute..
the chicory root was a little on the burnt side, but was still usable. these reviews are to aid people in their purchase's of product. so i am wondering why my first review of this product was wiped away. review was done in 2017 just like some others that are still up. yours truly.
Love it a lot. Take my cup each morning! Great and fast delivering service. Thanks.
Good clean high quality
Second time ordering. Ill likely order again.
Perfect for cold winter days
I find regular coffee too acidic and drying, so this chicory is a perfect substitute with that nice bitter flavour.
