Grind your coffee beans to a medium consistency and combine them with the chicory granules. Start with a coffee to chicory ratio of 3:1 and adjust according to your taste. Pour the grounds into the bottom of your French press.
Add a small amount of boiling water.
Stir the grounds and let them sit for 30 seconds. This will help you evenly extract your beans.
Add the rest of the boiling water to the ground mix.
Gently rest the plunger on top of the grounds and let the mixture steep for 3½ minutes.
Press the plunger down. This will filter out the coffee grounds and chicory, leaving you with a velvety cup of coffee.
See what you think of this coffee's smooth, earthy flavor. You can play with the chicory-to-coffee ratio until you find the combination that suits your taste. And as with all coffee, you can mix in milk, cream, or sugar. Or try a homemade coffee syrup or creamer!
