If you can’t make the trip, Supermarket Italy has everything you need for recreating an authentic Cafe Du Monde experience in the comfort of home.
The History of Café Du Monde and Chicory Coffee
Coffee was first brought to North America through the port of New Orleans in the mid 18th century courtesy of French settlers. When a civil war broke out in France, coffee and other essential foods became scarce, and the answer to the critical shortage was chicory root. One of the many French customs that the Acadians from Nova Scotia introduced to Louisiana, chicory comes from the root of the endive plant, a type of lettuce. It has a rich chocolate flavor that helps to soften the bitter edge of dark French roast coffee and remains the signature flavor of Cafe Du Monde coffee. As the popularity of chicory coffee spread throughout the region, Cafe Du Monde filled the need for a local New Orleans coffee shop by opening in 1862.
