Its great to be able to blend your own chicory coffee. I use the fresh roasted Sumatra at Costco's with Community Coffee's chicory. My blend is 8oz of chicory to 16oz of coffee. If you want a stronger chicory favor, use more. Use less for a milder blend. The good thing about blending yourself is the ability to use a good grade of coffee. I believe Cafe du Monde uses a low grade of coffee.

If you don't need 6 bags of chicory, you can order it directly from Community Coffee. Its $2.99 a bag, plus shipping (at least $6.95) from them. Clearly Amazon is a better value. I will usually end up giving a bag or 2 away to friends or family that express an interest. Storing the rest in the freezer is a good idea.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Large thank you to Amazon for their return of Community Chicory
to there product line---
This is second order since availability re-instated. Great product!

~~~~~~~~~~
The wording for the description of this product can be confusing
but only if you do not read it.

Community may need to reword the description, however--
when the package reads 100% Chicory, this should indicate
the product is --- 100% Chicory---no coffee.

The product does show a short period allowed for brewing.
This indicates product is getting to you "on time"
and produced freshly. This herb is harvested and roasted
to get to us fresh.
I keep mine in the freezer and move it to the fridge
when am ready to brew.

I brew this plain and drink it as I like my coffee
cream and Ste-vita. Do not find bitter when consumed this way.

Because of misunderstandings here,
Amazon has pulled the product
and I must go to Community to get my supply.

Caffeine elevates my blood sugar thus chicory
is my coffee substitute. Have been drinking coffee/chicory
blend for seven decades and just chicory for about 2 years.

If you like chicory in your coffee, this is a much better alternative than buying say, Cafe du Monde or French Market coffee and chicory. Why? Because if you're like me you think their coffee tastes terrible and would rather be able to blend your chicory with coffee you like at the ratio you like. Flavor and flexibility are a nice combination. The chicory itself is excellent--rich and bitter sweet--and the six twelve ounce bags deal is very affordable. Just store them in the freezer until you need them. I know I will be buying more.

UPDATE 7/2014: Still a great product, but now that the price has gone from $18 and change to over $30 in the space of a few months, I'd look elsewhere.

Community Coffee's chicory is great for people like me who love "New Orleans" coffee--coffee blended with chicory. I used to order New Orleans coffee online until I discovered that I could buy the chicory by itself and mix it with various coffees at home. This way I can determine the ratio I want and I don't have to order so often.

There is chicory and then there is Community Coffee Chicory. I started using chicory with another company's mixed coffee and chicory product available in the Seattle area and learned to love the special flavor it gives to enhance my coffee. When a friend went to visit her family who had just moved to Mississippi, she was nice enough to return with various bags of chicory so we could taste test all the ones the local grocery store had. The winner was Community Coffee's chicory. I have tried their coffee/chicory mix, and it's good too, but I like flavored ground coffee and playing with really dark roasts and medium roasts that are available up here, so buying just chicory works the best for me. I've been buying Community Coffee for about 8-10 years and was pleasantly surprised to see it sold on Amazon.

If you haven't tried chicory, take the chance and brew some up! It's full of anti-oxidants, and has been known to help lower blood sugar with type 2 diabetes and help the liver work better. Even tea drinkers can like chicory. I also like that I don't need to put as much in the brew filter; it simply doesn't take as many grounds to brew. If you've had chicory and found it to be bitter or have heard the 'bitter coffee' stories about it, keep that in mind. If I am only brewing it without the coffee, I only put in 2 1/2 or 3 scoops instead of 4.

Community Coffe Chicory and Amazon.com. A prefect combination! Try it today!

(This is not paid for by Community Coffee or Amazon. I really like them both!)

First off, I'd just like to state that most of the negative reviews of this product are unwarranted. The title says that this is 100% Chicory, and that's exactly what you get. There is no coffee in the mix, just "100% Chicory" meant for blending with the coffee of your choice. This is reiterated in the product description. If you feel misled, then you didn't take the time to read either.

Now, as for the product itself, Community Coffee Private Reserve Medium-Dark Roast, 100% Chicory (that's a mouthful), it's good. It's 100% chicory root, which you blend with whatever coffee you'd like. Each person is going to have their own preferences, so experimentation with your coffee-to-chicory ratio is key. I've blended it with a few Community Coffee coffee varieties, as well as several other, cheaper coffees, and I've found that a 3-to-1 ratio is best (my wife prefers 4-to-1 or higher, if she's going to use chicory at all). We use a French press, but a drip coffee-maker will work as well. Don't use anything for making espresso, such as a moka pot. I don't know this from personal experience, but apparently the chicory is much more water-soluble than coffee is, and it will really gum-up the smaller holes in those devices.

All-in-all, this is a great product, especially at the Amazon Subscribe and Save price. At 6 bags per order, you'll probably want to share, as even after giving a couple of bags away, you're getting much more than if you bought it from Community Coffee directly (while they only charge $3 per bag, shipping kills it at around $7). Blending your own New Orleans-style coffee with chicory is a much more economical and better-tasting way to do it (brands like CDM are overpriced).
