It has become a New Orleans tradition for many local roasters to blend their coffee with chicory, the root of a blue-flowered perennial plant. The strong local connection with chicory dates back to the Civil War at a time when Louisianans had to get creative as a Union naval blockade cut off the port of New Orleans from the rest of the world. Some went to great lengths to stretch out the limited supply of coffee. Acorns, beets, parsnips, and chicory were all turned to as additions at this time. Burnt sugar was also sold to coffee dealers and houses under the name of "black jack".
Throughout the creation process for this energizing scrub, maker Southern Rhoades wanted to make sure they paid homage to the city where they source their ingredients, hence the name "Black Jack Coffee Scrub".
