Is that like Swedish egg coffee? Been meaning to try that. Basically mix one egg and coffee grounds, then add boiling water and simmer.

If there is literally egg in the coffee, well, that sounds completely disgusting!

Egg in coffee (and sugar) is delicious! In Italy they have zabaglione and uovo sbattuto. In Cuba they call it "café a la criolla" and add a little rum. They also have similar egg coffees in Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Indonesia, which also add sweetened condensed milk.

Swedish coffee, on the other hand, doesn't actually have any egg in it. The egg is used as a filter and clarifier and is removed from the end product. It's an old method for making really bad coffee taste a lot cleaner and less bitter. Personally, I would save the egg for breakfast and just use good coffee.

I would absolutely try this. I’m an adventurous eater and not scared to consume unconventional foods/drinks/combinations.

The Strib's curious MN section has an egg coffee backstory story.

From Star Tribune:

How did egg coffee become a MN tradition?

Frenchy - Be sure to let us all know how it goes and how you like it, or not.
