Chicory has been added to coffee across Europe and the USA for years, originally as a bulking agent when coffee supplies were scarce during the world wars. Nowadays, it’s used to give coffee a chocolatey edge and is particularly popular in Italy and New Orleans. This recipe attempts to reproduce the flavour, only using insects. The nuttiness of the cricket flour paired with the sweetness of the condensed milk makes this boozy coffee and excellent digestif.
