This was from a blog that was created by and dedicated to coffee aficionados. It wasn't a recipe per se, just a description of how coffee is typically prepared in Malta. I just put it into recipe form. Chicory has long been used in many cultures as a coffee substitute, especially when coffee is difficult to get. But chicory is still used today to make coffee bolder, adding an element that even the expensive coffee blends can’t achieve. A mere teaspoon of chicory added to coffee grounds is said to greatly improve the flavor, and it'll turn plain coffee into a more full-bodied cup of 'joe'.
