5 LB Resealable Bag w/ Valve. Chicory comes from the dried and roasted root of the chicory flower. Chicory has been used as a substitute for coffee in times when coffee was in short supply and expensive. Caffeine free with a more "roasted" flavor than regular coffee, it is also more soluble in water, which means you use a lot less of it when brewing. It has a very distinct flavor. Offered ground only.
