  1. My Grandmother used canned milk in her coffee her entire life. Makes it creamier. But it’s also the secrete best ingredient in fish chowder.

  2. The Germans regularly do this. In fact, evaporated milk is often called kaffeemilch over there.
    The resultant coffee tastes similar to coffee with coffeemate, because of the added sweetness.

  4. Well, I guess, if you want good tasting coffee.. I MEAN YES DO IT. Also, if you want REALLY REALLY REALLY good coffee, buy “sweetened condensed milk” and make it with it. Nom nom nom bloody nom. good.

  5. Of course you can replace milk with evaporated milk; it is a slightly different taste, but not unpleasant. I have used evaporated milk for years. Now I prefer goat milk.
    If you need to sweeten some more, use stevia powder, not sugar. Sugar gives you an insulin response, which is unhealthy. Stevia is insulin neutral (no insulin response).

  6. The complaint about using only evaporated milk in coffee is that it is not sweet enough for many taste buds. You can mix in a small amount of sugar with the evaporated milk to get the taste closer to store bought creamer.

  7. Yes, however, evaporated milk dramatically changes the flavor profile of the resultant concoctions, and requires a change to the ratio of coffee-to-dairy due to the density and intensity of evaporated milk.
    I use evaporated milk for some of my specialty coffee recipes which benefit from the more rich and dense characteristics of evaporated milk. Again, the flavor profile is very much different than using “milk”.
    Using condensed milk is also an option, albeit an expensive and calorie-laden one.

  8. Yes. Of course it can. It tastes ghastly but you ddn’t ask about that.
    I know I have drunk… coffee? at a pho restaurant. I think that may make it Korean.. and the coffee was served with evaporated milk. It was a specialty.
    The best I can say for that coffee (wherever and whatever it was) is that the pho was pretty good.

  9. It would be more accurate to say you are replacing cream with evaporated milk than milk,since the evaporated milk is thicker.
    I’m puzzled by the posters who say evaporated milk is not as sweet as ordinary milk, since with less water, the percentage of lactose (milk sugar) rises.
