    Which is better, raw or roasted?

    I have had chicory by itself, blended with coffee (New Orleans style), and also had dandelion root coffee. I'm not that picky and all of them work for me.

    Do you prefer one of the above over the other?

    Not really.

    If I was trying to phase off coffee the natural progression might be chicory+coffee and then just straight chicory.

    Chicory grows in your region. It can be a better match for you personally.

    Off topic a bit, you have a very beautiful family.

    Wow thank you for the compliment. You are familiar with my son Kris!!! I was thinking the same if trying to quit coffee then the chicory coffee would be a good start and then do the chicory. Ive tried a chai chicory tea. Thank you for your opinion on this! I only drink One coffee a day and use good water to make it and grind my own beans. I only had my first coffee when I was 43 lol!

    oh gee, that explains a lot - thanks:) It's back to lemon ice water for me then... when the chicory is roasted it is turned into fructose... that's what the article said...

    I wonder if fresh chicory also makes you hungry... this would also explain a lot:)

    Is it the caffeine in coffee / caffeine in general that is bad or the coffee in general?

  18. Here's an update for my use of roasted chicory for the last 1.5 months.

    I feel really good - probably also from drinking almost no coffee, though sometimes I do a blended new orleans style - but my digestion and BM's are truly in the optimal zone. I am not at all constipated, which given my EMF environment at work is a good thing. In my individual case, this seems to be helpful for supporting my liver (jaundice baby).

    I've been drinking chicory too for a while. I might be drinking it too strong because I can't do more than one cup a day (two teaspoons of chicory to make it).
    But overall I find it a good way to change habits with regards to coffee consumption.
  20. @WalterNL I experienced that too. I half the scoops. For my chemex, I use only 4 scoops for the whole thing. Sometimes we add additional hot water after and it still comes out pretty strong. You could probably do a .5 to 1 scoop per cup and it'll be more tolerable.
