1. What is Vietnamese Egg Coffee ?
Is a Vietnamese drink made with egg, coffee, and sweetened condensed milk. The creamy egg white adds richness to the coffee while the yolk creates an interesting texture in your mouth. The coffee also has a unique flavor because it’s brewed with ground, not whole beans.
– 1 egg
– 2 tablespoons or more brown sugar (or to taste)
– 4 teaspoons ground coffee beans (dark roast is recommended, but you can use whatever you like best)
– Hot water
3. How to make Vietnamese Egg Coffee at home
a. Begin by wearing gloves to protect your hands from the egg white. Break the egg into a filter or strainer that’s held over a large mug or bowl.
b. Pour sugar until it reaches the top of the filter. Use about 2-4 tablespoons of brown sugar depending on how sweet you want your coffee to be.
c. Pour in the ground coffee and allow it to to soak in the water and sugar mixture before adding more. Once your coffee grounds are wet, pour another 4 teaspoons of ground coffee into the mix on top of the already poured grounds. Continue doing this until there is room for no more than one or two tablespoons worth of space at the top.
d. Place your hands on top of the filter to prevent any spilling before you place it over your mug or bowl-hold it for between 5-10 minutes depending on personal preference.
