The history of Coffee & Chicory

There's a lot of unique in New Orleans but one thing in particular is the preferred choice of coffee, coffee and chicory, for most New Orleanians. We serve the Community Coffee brand of Coffee & Chicory in both lobbies at Rathbone Mansions throughout the day. It has a delicious and distinct taste. If you're curious about the origin of it read this excellent article on the Smithsonian website and see how mixing coffee and chicory, the root of blue flowered perennial plant, became an essential part of New Orleans culture.
