Creole Cafe Noir
PREP TIME:15 Minutes
SERVES: 6 - 8

No coffee compares to the coffee of South Louisiana. No sumptuous Creole feast would be complete without a traditional Cafe Noir, that swarthy blend of dark roasted coffee and chicory, still recognized for its therapeutic values. Many old Cajuns and Creoles have testified to its worth in reaching that ripe old age, as well as adding a lot of pleasure to those years.

5 level tbsps dark roast coffee and chicory 5 cups cold water

In the top of a French drip coffee pot, place ground coffee and chicory. In a one quart sauce pot, bring water to a rolling boil. Drip the hot water, a few tablespoons at a time, through the coffee until all is used. Once dripped, the coffee pot may be placed in a small frying pan filled with water on low heat to keep warm. However, the coffee may be placed in a glass jar in the refrigerator and heated whenever needed. This coffee is normally served black and only in demitasse cups.
