USA GROWN CHICORY COFFEE
Chicory root is an incredible natural resource. Featured in my Pocket Field Guide titled Wilderness Survival Drinks: Teas, Coffees, Nectars and Saps, chicory makes a wonderful, aromatic addition to coffee by cutting some of the bitterness and making for a smoother, full-bodied beverage. Chicory is rich in natural, soluble fiber promoting digestive health. It has also been used for ages as a liver cleanser. Studies have shown that Chicory actually has a calming, soothing effect and has been scientifically proven to reduce the heart rate, thus counteracting caffeine when blended with coffees or teas (source: www.chicoryusa.com). The best thing about chicory is that you can find it everywhere (naturally in plant form or at the store)! I hope you enjoy this treat as much as I do! Prepare just as you would coffee.
The enclosed Whiskey Scoop, designed exclusively for APOCABOX subscribers, is truly one of the most unique edged tools we have ever collaborated in producing. It will allow you to carve pretty much any type of cup, bowl, spoon or ladle that you can imagine and is an incredibly robust and durable wood-working tool.
The handle of the Whiskey Scoop is made from upcycled white oak whiskey barrels and the blade itself is made from high carbon steel. It is fitted with a custom Kydex sheath. This product is hand-made in Kentucky, USA by the artisans and blacksmiths at Reptile Toolworks.
BE CAREFUL. The Whiskey Scoop is extremely sharp. NEVER carve with this gouge tool toward any part of your body (or anyone else for that matter). Please see the video link below for carving best practices.
