What is the history of Café Du Monde coffee?
Coffee was first imported to North America through the port of New Orleans in the mid 18th century. As the French began settling in colonies along the Mississippi, they also brought their love of coffee. But when a civil war broke out in France, coffee and other essential foods became scarce. The answer to the critical shortage was chicory, which helped add body and flavor to the brew.
Chicory was one of the many French customs that the Acadians from Nova Scotia introduced to Louisiana. Made from the root of the endive plant, a type of lettuce, chicory has a rich chocolate flavor that helps to soften the bitter edge of dark roast coffee, the signature flavor of Cafe Du Monde coffee.
As the popularity of chicory coffee spread throughout the region, Cafe Du Monde filled the need for a local coffee shop in New Orleans by opening a coffee stand in 1862. In 1942, Hubert Fernandez bought the French Market cafe from his business partner Fred Koeniger and continued the coffee and chicory tradition at Cafe Du Monde, a New Orleans institution. Today, the Original Cafe Du Monde has the same menu of coffee drinks and beignets, which can be enjoyed 24 hours a day, seven days week except on Christmas Day.
