A robust herbal "coffee" that is naturally caffeine free. Makes a great dessert drink that will not interfere with sleep. Mix with coffee to cut acidity and increase wellness. Roasted Dandelion and Chicory root form the base of this invigorating blend, while licorice root and goji berries add a subtly sweet and fruity overtone.
"I first came up with this blend because I LOVE coffee. It's not just the caffeine, it's the whole mouth feel and robustness of it. But the acidity has been really working my stomach over. So even decaf was a problem. I tried chicory root and it was a bit too bitter. I tried roasted dandelion and it was more mellow, but lacking that 'robust' sensation I craved. So I mixed them together, gave it some licorice root to have a bit of soothing action on my digestion, and a smattering of goji berries to give the whole thing a bit of depth. I add a little milk to mine, but forgo the sweetener since it has licorice root already. The results were exactly what I was looking for." - Kristin M Roach, owner
Brew using a pour over coffee filter, french press or Aeropress. Use about 1/2 the amount you normally would ground coffee as herbal blend makes a very concentrated brew. Serve with cream and a sweeter like honey or sugar to taste.
