The American Beech Tree´s (Fagus Grandifolia) nuts when taken out of the husks, roasted until dark and brittle, then ground, will make a fine coffee.

  • Store it in an airtight container.
  • They are best collected after the first hard frost when they normally drop to the ground.
  • Once stored, they can be used year round.
  • Prepare normally, as you would brew a regular coffee.

Chicory coffee - (Cichorium intybus) remember that blue flower with almost leafless stalks that grow just about everywhere there´s a road. 


They look like daisy´s, but their petals are blue and squared off at the ends.  

  • The white fleshy roots, roasted until dark brown and brittle, then ground, make an excellent coffee. 
  • Prepare like coffee. 
  • Store in an airtight container. 
  • Use year round.
