Subject: Re: Cafe du Monde, New Orleans by Guest Author
 

Reviving this old thread. My daughter just spent her first weekend in New Orleans the week before Christmas and did her Christmas shopping their: her brother got a Saints t-shirt, her grandfather a Jazz t-shirt, and I got a can of Café du monde coffee.

My first and only visit to New Orleans was in 1966, and I have fond memories of the café au lait and beignets.

I have grown into a bit of a coffee snob over the years, and was surprised at how good this coffee is, when made properly. IMHO, this means using it *only* for café au lait. I think the standard recipe on the can is for extra strong coffee, to be mitigated by the milk. I believe it is designed to be unpalatable if taken black.

Although not normally a big café au lait fan, I find that this strong coffee-chicory holds up well with hot milk.
Very easy to make using a melitta drip filter and microwaving your milk in the mug beforehand.

After all these years, I still remember those great CdM mugs, too!

It was a great article: the Café du Monde is an absolute must for anybody visiting New Orleans.

Best Wishes for 2012,
Greg
