Chicory coffee is an aromatic and healthy drink that can be made at home. Chicory has many valuable properties and is used as a natural substitute for coffee. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that have a beneficial effect on our health.

To make chicory coffee, you will need:

  • Ground chicory – 2 teaspoons.
  • Water – 1 cup.
  • Milk to taste.
  • Sugar to taste.

First of all, heat the water in a saucepan or kettle to a boil. Then add the chicory to the hot water and mix thoroughly. Place the saucepan over low heat and bring to a boil. After that, remove from heat, cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes.

While the drink is steeping, you can prepare a cup. Add milk and sugar to the cup according to your taste. Using a beater or spoon, whisk the milk with the sugar until foamy. Set aside.

Once the chicory has been infused, strain the drink through a sieve or coffee filter. This way, you will get rid of the sediment and get a smooth and rich taste of coffee.

Pour the finished chicory into a cup, add the whipped milk with the sugar and stir gently.
