One way or another, chicory is an excellent source of natural nutrients, including phosphorus, calcium, iron, potassium, as well as niacin, inulin, vitamins A, C and other useful microelements. Chicory coffee is totally caffeine-free, therefore using ground roasted chicory root instead of coffee beans is a solution for those who have personal sensitivity to caffeinated drinks. But the taste of the beverage is quite similar to coffee, and even more roasted. In addition, consuming this type of coffee is linked to a number of chicory benefits, which we can’t normally receive from our usual coffee.
Chicory coffee is considered to be one of the most effective natural remedies for body cleansing. It not only aids harmful toxin removal from our intestines, it also assists in blood cleansing, as well as controlling the levels of sugar in the blood. That is why this herbal remedy is highly recommended and beneficial to those who suffer from type 2 diabetes.
In addition, chicory coffee can be used to reduce the risks of kidney stones, jaundice and other liver diseases. Chicory benefits also include anti-infalmmatory properties of this natural remedy, which can also relieve pains of arthritis and headaches. Being a great source of vitamin A, chicory has positive effects on our vision and the function of our nervous system.
To prepare a delicious cup of chicory simply place the bag in a cup and add boiling water. Allow to brew and add milk and sugar to taste. One chicory bag makes two or more cups. Woody Cape chicory bags are conveniently sealed in foil pouches for freshness.
Derived from the root of the chicory plant. After it has been roasted it consists mainly of compound sugars, and more particularly of fructose (fruit sugar).

It does not feel like a sacrifice drinking a cup of chicory in the morning or evening. Will definitely keep this in stock.28/01/2016, By JanineI can drink coffee, even though I use to love it. This is an amazing alternative. No stomach issues... happiness :)26/01/2016, By LynNice mild flavour, good value for money and definitely worth a try.25/01/2016, By RhonaEilerdMmmmm, a nice mild flavour without the caffeine! I like to drink it in the evening because it doesn interfere with my sleep like regular coffee.04/12/2015, By ElsabeWe love Chicory, but struggle to find it in the small town we live. I love that you can make more than 2 cups with one bag. Also like that it doesn clump like the powder Chicory usually does. Great product!20/11/2015, By JarrydThis Coffee is just brilliant- a must have for work and ones pantry.12/11/2015, By LizetteMy stomach problems are in the past now that I drink chicory instead of coffee wow this is amazing!21/08/2015, By ClarindaThis product is amazing. Im a coffee addict, and this completely replaced daily coffee intake of 8 - 10 cups a day :) ... Im out now and awaiting the arrival of my next batch, but in the meantime I had a cup of regular coffee today and it tasted awful, very much like chemicals. I won ever revert back to normal coffee ... perhaps just the odd restaurant latte28/06/2015, By LeeI actually prefer Chicory to coffee. It has a delicious mild flavour (although with these bags you can go strong if you prefer). It has no nasty side effects of coffee and comes with a host of benefits as an added bonus. My only complaint about the product is how hard it is to find in stores. Their marketing department seriously needs to do some more work.26/06/2015, By MariaThis coffee substitute served with blackstrap black molasses are doing wonders for my body. Taste like chocolate whilst still warm.
Surely its great going organic06/06/2015, By TracyCompared to other chicory brands I have tried, I love the taste and strength of this product. The bags are nice to use because you can decide on how strong you want your brew and they can even be used for more than one cup.
I also find it very satisfying and a good coffee replacement, whereas some alternative products leave me feeling like something is missing.
A great product that I would definitely recommend.15/05/2015, By GraceI was happy with this purchase.29/04/2015, By JanineI decided to buy this product on a whim after reading about the benefits of drinking chicory - I really didn think that this would be a good replacement for someone who is coffee obsessed as I.
Boy, was I wrong!
Its not quite the same as my normal caffeine-packed pick-me-up but its a really great tasting alternative to coffee. Which was a godsend during pregnancy and breastfeeding (I drink 6+ cups a day of coffee so I was thrilled that I could get a similar tasting product that is caffeine-free).31/03/2015, By LelanieThis must be good and close to normal coffee brands, because my kids don even notice the difference. Me on the other hand is hooked on strong coffee and was hoping this would be a good replacement, but it is just too mild for me.18/02/2015, By AnnlerieI love this - it tastes just like coffee but without the caffeine and even without sugar and milk it is great. Also has some great health benefits. Will keep on buying!28/07/2014, By AlmaPerfect for when you are looking for something warm at night that won keep you up. It didn take long to get use to the taste. I can definitely feel the difference that it has made in my digestive system. Definite future purchase.11/07/2014, By JuanitaLove it,maybe a slightly milder taste to coffee but nice alternative to coffee in the evenings.07/07/2014, By SharonA warm, delicious caffeine free drink thats good for your digestive system27/11/2013, By SianHighly recommend this alternative to coffee. You will be surprised as to how good it tastes!12/10/2013, By RefiloeEver since using this product my headaches are gone,i feel like a new person :)17/05/2011, By LizetteI was very pleased to see that the taste is very similar to what I was used to the powder chickory, which I no longer get in the stores.
