The Smoothest Cup You’ll Ever Drink !
Between panoramic fjords, the world’s greatest saunas and wild, cold-water salmon, the Nordic region of Europe should definitely be a place that you visit at some point in your life.
Barring an actual trip, though, you can still get a taste of the locale by making and drinking the Swede’s unique take on java; egg coffee. Egg coffee is also known as Scandinavian coffee or Hungarian coffee.
Swedish egg coffee is dead simple to make and the result is a non-bitter, surprisingly light and incredibly smooth cup that combines the wonderful flavor of your favorite roast with a reminiscent aftertaste of toasted cheese.
Ok, so to make this strange and delightful concoction you are going to need the following:
1 fresh egg
1 to 1 ½ tbs of your preferred coffee, coarsely ground (similar to what you would use for a french press)
1 cup of water
1 cup of ice cold water (yes, that’s a total of 2 cups of water)
Sugar and milk to taste
All of this together will make a single serving of coffee, multiply accordingly for the number of cups you want.
#1 Boil the Water
Start boiling the first cup of water in a small pot.
#2 Crack the Egg and Stir
While the water is boiling, crack the egg (with the shell) into a cup and stir
#3 Add the Ground Coffee
Add the ground coffee to the egg and stir some more.
#4 Add Egg-Coffee Slurry to Boiling Water
Once you have the egg-coffee slurry thoroughly mixed, add it to the boiling water.
#5 Boil for 5 Minutes
Let the mixture boil for 5 minutes, making sure that it doesn’t overflow (because it will want to overflow).
#6 End Boil and Add Cold Water
After boiling, remove the mixture from heat and add the cup of ice-cold water. The egg and coffee clumps should sink to the bottom of the pot which will allow you to easily pour off the actual coffee and leave behind most of the undesired bits.
#7 Filter and Serve
Pour the liquid through a fine mesh strainer, or use a french press to get that coffee goodness.
There you have it, yet another new and fancy way to brew the world’s greatest drink. Sit back, enjoy and, really, take a trip to Sweden sometime, it’s worth it.
