GEAR | Chicory Smoking Kit

You may remember a few years ago a Q&A with Robyn Wilson of The Poor Porker. At that time, they were just starting out with a Sunday stand in Lakeland, Florida serving up begnets and chicory coffee to a line of loyal followers. Since then they've grown to include an online shop that sells their own slow-smoked small batch chicory ($8) that blends so sublimely with coffee (as well as ice cream, soups, spice rubs, etc.). I've been seeing chicory on menus in L.A. everywhere from Sqirl to Republique, it seems to be having a moment. 

I'm going to try my hand at some homemade chicory coffee this weekend with their liquid smoking kit ($45), we'll see how well I do. And! And! The Poor Porker also has an online vintage shop up that's worth a look-see (that Wrangler vest!).
