I have tasted coffee from all over the world...as weird as it may sound, I still like the taste of chickory flavored coffee. Specifically a brand from Louisianna called Community Coffee-New Orleans Blend. I carry a quart jug with me to work everyday...no, I don't use it to wake up; driving on the freeway does that. Well, you wake up or get run over...the coffee "calms" me after I get to work.
