"This is NOT a good coffee replacement... it is NOTHING like coffee! The only thing in common with coffee it has is it's dark color! NASTY AWFUL BITTER TASTING!! EWWWW!! Yeah, I won't be buying this again...."
"When the doctor told me I had to cut out all caffine, I truly did not think I could do it. I was a 3 to 4 cup a day coffeeholic. Thank goodness he recommended chicory root. Have been drinking this for almost 4 months and have not missed my coffee at all. Very rich, smooth taste, but you only need a little. I put 1/2 tsp in my single brew coffee pot and it works great."
"I love this stuff. I recently tried a different brand because it was cheaper and got overall good reviews. It is so bitter compared to Frontier. I had no idea how smooth and wonderful the Frontier chicory root was until I tried the other brand. Frontier had been the only kind I had used in the past, and from my bad experience, I will never stray again!"
"This was my first chicory try. Lots of flavor. I make a two cup pot, but only use about a half cup at a time, mixed with a half cup of alternative milk (the richer with fat, the better), and a tiny bit of stevia. Oftentimes I add a tsp or two of chia to make a sweet chicory pudding. Very yummy. The remaining liquid chicory goes in the fridge, and the grounds are stored in the freezer. I find chicory to be just as acidic as coffee, but without the caffeine that makes me manic. Recommend."
"the benefit of antioxidants and it's a nice go-to drink morning/noon/night. I followed the bag instructions and let 1/2 tsp steep in boiled water for 3-5 minutes. It basically allows the granules to release their nutty goodness into the water and settle. I really find it's a tasty and nice alternative to coffee. Beware of the last sip though if you don't strain the cup before drinking. :) Will buy again..."
"I use 1/2 tsp per mug of water, and guests can't even tell the difference (they think it is some specialty coffee brand). I have needed to come off of coffee for several years, so I started with half coffee and half chicory - was I sure surprised! I never missed the coffee, and gradually added more chicory, less coffee! And chicory is certainly cheaper, becasue I use so much less (1/2 tsp. chicory granules compared to a heaping tbl. of coffee). I have enjoyed this for several years now, and have helped friends who have wished to convert from coffee as well."
