Looking for coffee / chicory blend
Hi folks - I'm on the hunt for coffee with chicory, like a Cafe du Monde or something of that ilk. Anyone know of readily available brands and a good source in the Boston area?
I went looking for chicory coffee several months ago and ended up buying chicory root from the Naturals store in Porter Square and grinding it myself.
If I remember, Whole Foods in Alewife claimed to have carried the chicory coffee at one point, but did not have any in stock.
Please let me know if you find it. Makes a great rub on pork.
Some of the Market Baskets carry Cafe du Monde--I've seen it at the Salem MB and the Danvers MB in the Asian food section.
C-Mart in Chinatown and Kam Man in Quincy also carry it.
Trader Joe's used to have chickory coffee, but it seems to be gone now. Don't know if it's gone for good, or what.

All of the Asian grocery stores have Cafe du Monde at VERY reasonable prices. Chinatown, Kam Man in Quincy, Hong Kong Market in Allston, H-Mart in Burlington, etc. etc.
They sell a LOT of it at most of them. I have bought it a few times and was surprised at how nice and fresh it was.
I think it is often used for Vietnamese coffee, etc.

pretty sure I got my last can of cafe du monde at roche brothers. I think they might even have more than one brand of chicory coffee.
