New Orleans Style Cafe Au Lait
10 mins (prep 5, cooking 5)
4 ingredients
12 servings
"Real, New Orleans-style coffee must be dark roast, brewed strong, and must include chicory. In fact, most of the coffee drunk in the Crescent City is a coffee-and-chicory blend". Some well-known local coffee-and-chicory brands are French Market (my personal favorite), Community Coffee, Cafe du Monde or Union. Brew your coffee in a drip coffeemaker only, and serve with half coffee and half scalded (NOT steamed!) milk. From and posted for ZWT5.
