Description

Homemade Herbal Coffee is an easy at home coffee substitute with all the deep and rich flavors of coffee without the caffeine.


Ingredients

Scale

For the herbal coffee

  • 2 tbsp pau d’arco
  • 4 teaspoons roasted dandelion root
  • 3 teaspoons roasted chicory
  • 2 teaspoons roasted cacao nibs ((see recipe below))
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamin
  • 3 cups boiling water

For the roasted cacao nibs:

  • 1/2 cup cacao nibs, (finely chopped)

Instructions

For the roasted cacao nibs:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the finely chopped cacao nibs out on a small baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes and remove from the oven. Once cooled, store in a jar for future herbal coffee making.

For the herbal coffee:

  1. Add all of the herbal coffee ingredients into a French Press. Cover with 3 cups of boiling water and let brew for 7 minutes. Press down the filter, and pour into two glasses. Serve with desired accompaniments.

Notes

  • For a single serving, simply half all of the ingredients and proceed with the recipe as written.
  • The strength of this “coffee” is similar to a medium roast. For a light roast, reduce the chicory to 1 teaspoon. For a dark roast, increase the chicory to 2 teaspoons.
