Chicory was brought to North America in the 1700s and has been a popular coffee substitute in France since around 1800. Chicory is more water soluble than coffee, which means you need to use less of it when brewing it with coffee or instead of coffee (1/3 chicory, 2/3 coffee). Chicory root is roasted before it is brewed, but it can also be boiled and eaten like a vegetable.
