Chicory (Cichorium intybus) is one of the oldest recorded types of plants. Chicory is native to Northern Africa, Western Asia and Europe. Its cultivation is thought to have originated in Egypt in ancient times. Later, chicory was grown by Medieval monks in Europe (at which time commonly added to coffee by the Dutch). It was brought to North America in the 1700’s and has been a popular coffee substitute or an ingredient in coffee in France since around 1800.
