Swedish Egg Coffee

As strange as it sounds, you'd be mmmm-ing when you take the first sip.

I am somewhat disappointed that none of my Swedish kompisar or lärare never mention this egg coffee. Perhaps it has never crossed their minds to mention or the topic of discussion was never brought up. I was quite surprised yet not that surprise to discover that the Swedes add an unusual ingredient in their recipe. Oh wait till you hear about putting bananas and ketchup in one dish!

Although there is no historical reports that egg coffee originated from Sweden, there are references in the old Swedish cookbooks whereby egg is used in making coffee. It was said that this recipe was devised by Swedish immigrants on their way to America.

You require the following:

  • 1 fresh egg

  • 1 to 11/2 tbs of your preferred coarsely ground coffee

I used 2 tbs of Expresso grinds from Starbucks and NO! Instant coffee does not work for this recipe.

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 iced cold cup of water .

You may want to prepare the iced cold water ahead to get it really nice and cold or leave it in the freezer just before you make this. Just don’t freeze it!

  • a saucepan

  • french press (if you have) or fine mesh strainer

To save me from the trouble of taking snapshots, here is a proper link on how to make this Swedish Egg Coffee:

Lycka till!
