The practice of using roasted dandelion root to produce a coffee-like beverage first gained popularity in the mid-1800s and is still going strong. Dandelion root "coffee" has robust flavor, full body and is naturally sweet because of natural fructose, but is free of acid, bitterness and caffeine.

Dandelion is a perennial member of the aster family that is the bane of many gardeners and farmers throughout the northern hemisphere. To herbalists, however, this sunny flower represents the potential for dandelion flower wine, spring salads greens from the young leaves and dandelion “coffee” from the roasted roots.

Although the use of dandelion has a long history that dates back centuries, the use of the root as a caffeine-free alternative to coffee wasn’t widely known until the mid-1800s. The earliest known published accounts of this culinary discovery appeared in The New York Albion sometime in the 1830s and in an 1886 edition of Harpers New Monthly Magazine.
