Yeah, well chicory was a fad among those favoring "natural foods," which was a big trend in this country in the 20th century, as you must know.   Coffee was considered by some too jolting to the body.

It was important to have a softer version of everything -- you know, kind of like the Second Vatican Council "protected" Catholics from the straight truth.

I just like to drink my coffee, not over analyse it ;). Preferably with a healthy splash of whole milk and a teaspoon of sugar; and, frothed....ok, well, I guess I do make it slightly more complicated than it needs to be  ;D.

Also, I don't technically add chicory to my coffee myself.  It comes already mixed in with the coffee grinds I buy.  It makes for a nice bold flavor, and I use half as much grinds to get an equally strong coffee compared to pure coffee.  Which makes it more cost effective, because I like bold, strong coffee.

Since this seems to have turned into the coffee update thread, I should report that lately I tend to use collagen powder rather than eggs in my bullet-proof coffee (along with butter and MCT oil).

I've heard that is even better for this purpose.

It's an herb that has a smoky flavor.  Some people brew it as a substitute for coffee.  Maybe some people add it to coffee, for all I know.

Yeah, coffee with chicory is common in and around New Orleans. Chicory became popular during the Civil War as a coffee substitute in the Confederacy, particularly in Louisiana, because the Union blockaded the Port of New Orleans and coffee was unavailable. It became traditional in New Orleans; it was also used to stretch coffee supplies during the Depression.

Never heard of chicory. I like to grind my own coffee beans every morning.

what is the reasoning for adding collagen powder or eggs to the concoction? more importantly, HOW DOES IT TASTE?!  :P

i ask because i'm a great fan of bulletproof coffee and the ketogenic diet.

...wouldn't egg in hot coffee turn it into egg-drop coffee and cook the egg?

I just do 2 tbsp. of coconut oil, 4 oz of heavy whipping cream, and choke it down as fast as I can.

L.T.C.
This forum isn't for everybody; I pray for all the members every day; so I hope you stay well and let us know how you are doing from time to time.
Ches,
A truly classic post. I used to eat roasted coffee beans all day long when I worked at our family's coffee business; but I had to give Coffee up, because I could no longer tolerate the caffeine.
I once had a cup of Hierba Mate, an Argentinian herbal drink; it was the closest thing to Coffee that I ever tasted; I loved it; unfortunately, it was full of caffeine also. Alas, my kingdom for a cup of coffee! 
"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Miriam_M is too busy making muffins to make coffee too, that's too much to ask. 

That's pretty adorable.  How I wish my busy-ness at the moment had anything whatsoever to do with muffin-making.  The latter would be way more fun and interesting.

In my corner of the world, English majors are in high demand -- well employed--  so we're not relegated to cafes any longer.

So carleen you had better get back here because only you can make the coffee.

Not to brag, but I make quite carefully, by hand, pour-over coffee, and, like a trad, I make it religiously.  It's the equivalent of espresso.

Collagen powder has no taste and dissolves instantly into coffee. And after a few weeks of putting it into my coffee, my hair got so smooth and soft, I no longer needed a hair conditioner. It's also beneficial for one's skin.
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”
